For t his filter \H(w)\ = r ect(2';;;) a nd LH(w) = e - jwtd , so t hat H(w) = r ect (2~) e - jwtd (4.60a) T he u nit i mpulse response h(t) o f t his filter is o btained from p air 18 ( Table 4.1) a nd t he t ime-shifting p roperty 1 h (t) = F - [ rect W =- (2~) e - jwtd ] sinc [W (t - td)J (4.60b) 7r Recall t hat h(t) is t he s ystem response t o i mpulse i nput 6(t), which is a pplied a t t = O. F igure 4.27b shows a curious fact: t he r esponse h(t) begins even before t he i nput is applied ( at t = 0). Clearly, the filter is non causal a nd t herefore physically unrealizable. Similarly, one can show t hat o ther i deal filters (such as t he ideal highpass or t he ideal b andpass filters depicted in Fig. 4.28) are also physically unrealizable. For a physically realizable system, h(t) m ust b e causal; t hat is, h(t) = 0 for t &lt; 0 I n t he frequency domain, t his c ondition is equivalent t o t he well-known P aleyWiener c riterion, which s tates t hat t he n ecessary a nd sufficient condition for t he a mplitude response \H (w) \ t o b e realizable is 1 00 - 00 I lnIH(w)lld 2 w &lt;OO 1+w (4.61) I f H(w) does n ot s atisfy t his c ondition, i t is unrealizable.

T he w idth of h (t) indicates t he t ime constant (response time); t hat is, how fast t he s ystem is c apable of responding to a n i nput, and how much dispersion (spreading) i t will cause. This is t he time-domain perspective. From t he frequency-domain perspective, these engineers view a system as a filter, which selectively transmits certain frequency components and suppresses t he o thers [frequency response H(w)J. Knowing t he i nput s ignal spectrum and t he frequency response of t he system, they create a mental image o f t he o utput signal spectrum. This concept is precisely expressed by Y(w) = F(w)H(w).
