Using t he u nit s tep function, we c an describe such functions by a single expression t hat is valid for all t. f (-t) = { 1.3-4 ~ - '/2 - 12 - t > - 5 o therwise or 1:::; t < 5 • Combined Operations C ertain c omplex operations require simultaneous use of more t han one of t he above operations. T he m ost general operation involving all t he t hree o perations is f (at - b), which is realized in two possible sequences of operation: u (t) = 1 . T ime-shift f ( t ) b y b t o obtain f (t - b). Now time-scale the shifted signal f (t - b) by a ( that is, replace t w ith at) t o o btain f (at - b). 2 . Time-scale f (t) by a t o obtain f (at). Now time-shift f (at) by ~ ( that is, replace t w ith (t - ~) t o o btain f[a(t - ~)J = f (at - b). I n either case, if a is negative, time scaling involves time inversion. For instance, t he signal f (2t - 6) c an be obtained in two ways: first, delay f (t) by 6 t o o btain f (t - 6) a nd t hen time-compress this signal by factor 2 (replace t w ith 2t) t o o btain f (2t - 6). Alternately, we first time-compress f (t) by factor 2 to obtain f (2t), t hen delay this signal by 3 (replace t w ith t - 3) t o o btain f (2t - 6). 1.4 Some Useful Signal Models I n t he a rea o f signals a nd systems, t he s tep, t he impulse, a nd t he e xponential functions are very useful. They n ot only serve as a basis for representing other signals, b ut t heir u se c an simplify many aspects of t he signals a nd systems. :1 D 2 4 {~ t- t20 (1.20) t <O t- O -\ ( b) (a) F ig. 1 .15 R epresentation of a r ectangular p ulse by s tep functions. Consider, for example, t he r ectangular pulse depicted in Fig. 1.15a. We can express such a pulse in terms of familiar s tep functions by observing t hat t he pulse f (t) c an be expressed as t he s um of t he two delayed u nit s tep functions as shown in Fig. 1.15b. T he u nit s tep function u (t) delayed by T seconds is u (t - T).

T he signal illustrated in Fig. l.16a can be conveniently handled by breaking it up into the two components f t(t) a nd h (t), depicted in Figs. 1.16b and 1.16c respectively. Here, f t(t) c an be obtained by multiplying the ramp t by the gate pulse u (t) - u(t - 2), as shown in Fig. 1. 16b. Therefore f t(t) = t [u(t) - = f t(t) + h (t) = t [u(t) =t u(t) - - u(t - 2)]- 2(t - 3) [u(t - 2) - u(t - 3)] 3(t - 2)u(t - 2) + 2 (t - 3)u(t - 3) • •...
