Unformatted text preview: When a system is applied to a harmonic signal, the result is the same harmonic signal multiplied by a complex constant that depends on the frequency. Generalized Harmonic Functions Transfer Functions H ( u ) is called the transfer function : how inputs transfer to outputs. Expressing H ( u ) in polar (magnitudephase) form: H ( u ) =  H ( u )  e i ( H ( u )) Recall that the magnitudes multiply and the phases add: H ( u ) e i 2 ut =  H ( u )  e i ( u ) e i 2 ut =  H ( u )  e i ( 2 ut + ( u ))  H ( u )  is the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) ( H ( u )) is the Phase Transfer Function (PTF)...
