(3.41) is called t he g eneralized F ourier s eries of f (t) w ith respect t o t he s et { xn(t)}. W hen t he s et { xn(t)} is such t hat t he e rror energy Ee - > 0 as N - > 0 0 for every member of some particular class, we say t hat t he s et { xn(t)} is complete on [tl, t 2J for t hat class of f (t), a nd t he s et { xn(t)} is called a set of b asis f unctions or b asis s ignals. Unless otherwise mentioned, in future we shall consider only t he class of energy signals. Thus, when t he s et { xn(t)} is complete, we have t he e quality (3.41). O ne s ubtle point t hat m ust be understood clearly is t he meaning of equality in Eq. (3.41). The equality here is n ot a n equality in the o rdinary sense, but in t he sense that the error energy, that is, the energy o f the difference between the two sides o f Eq. (3.41), approaches zero. I f t he e quality exists in t he o rdinary sense, t he e rror energy is always zero, b ut t he converse is n ot necessarily true. T he e rror energy can approach zero even though e(t), t he difference between the two sides, is nonzero a t some isolated instants. T he reason is t hat even if e (t) is nonzero a t such instants, the area under e 2 (t) is still zero; thus t he Fourier series on t he r ight-hand side of 3 Signal R epresentation by Orthogonal Sets 186 Eq. (3.41) may differ from f (t) a t a finite number of points. In fact, when f (t) has a j ump d iscontinuity a t t = to, t he corresponding Fourier series a t to converges t o t he m ean of f (to+) a nd f (to-)· I n Eq. (3.41), t he energy of t he l eft-hand side is E f ' a nd t he energy of t he r ight-hand side is t he s um of the energies of all t he orthogonal components.t T hus 00 = LC 2E n (3.42) n n =l This equation goes under t he n ame of P arseval's t heorem. Recall t hat t he signal energy (area u nder t he s quared value of a signal) is analogous t o t he s quare of t he l ength of a vector in t he vector-signal analogy. In vector space we know t hat t he s quare of t he l ength of a vector is equal t o t he s um of the squares of t he l engths of its orthogonal components. T he above equation (3.42) is t he s tatement of this fact as it applies t o signals. Generalization to Complex Signals T he above results can be generalized t o complex signals as follows: A s et of functions XI(t), X2(t), . .. , XN(t) is m utually orthogonal over t he interval [ tl, t2] if m fn (3.43) m =n I f t his set is c omplete for a certain class of functions, then a function f (t) in this class can be expressed as (3.44) where C 1 n= - En 1t2 f(t)x~(t) dt (3.45) t, E quation (3.39) [or Eq.
