Lecture S12 Muddiest Points General Comments Today, we talked about the relationship between BIBO stability and the region of convergence. The neat result is that a system is BIBO stable if and only if the region of convergence of the Laplace transform of the impulse response contains the line Re[ s ] = 0. Responses to Muddiest-Part-of-the-Lecture Cards (17 cards) 1. What is the region of convergence? (1 student) It’s the set of all values of s for which the Laplace transform integral converges. 2. Why does it matter that the LT integral converges absolutely as opposed to just converges? (1) Even though the LT might converge (but not absolutely) at the boundaries of the region of convergence, in the interior it will generally converge absolutely, because the integrand will be exponentially smaller (as t goes to either + or −∞ ) than at the boundary of the r.o.c. That’s good, because if the interior of the r.o.c. includes Re[ s ] = 0, then absolute convergence of the LT is the same as convergence of | g ( t ) dt | −∞ 3. Stop proving everything. We believe you. (1) But you need to understand why these things works. It’s not satisfactory for me to just claim something is true — you shouldn’t

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
