Do n ot compute the DFT; just write the appropriate sequence Jk. 2 -3 Choose appropriate values for No a nd T and compute the D FT of the signal e -tu(t). Use two different criteria for determining the effective bandwidth of e -tu(t). Use the bandwidth t o b e t hat frequency where the amplitude response drops to 1% of its peak value (at w = 0). Next, use the 99% energy criterion for determining the bandwidth (see Example 4.16). .2-4 Repeat Problem 5.2-3 for t he signal 2 J(t) = t2 + 1 f(t) U o ( a) 1 1-&quot; &quot; &quot;p 1 2 (b) 1 -..

Use T = ~. T he F ourier t ransform is a tool which allows us t o r epresent a signal J (t) a s a continuous s um o f exponentials of t he form e jwt , whose frequencies are r estricted t o t he i maginary axis in t he c omplex plane (8 = j w). As we saw in C hapters 4 a nd 5, such a r epresentation is q uite v aluable in t he a nalysis a nd processing of signals. I n t he a rea o f system analysis, however, t he use of Fourier t ransform leaves much t o b e desired. F irst, t he F ourier t ransform e xists only for a r estricted class of signals and, therefore, c annot b e u sed for such i nputs a s growing exponentials. S econd, t he F ourier t ransform c annot b e u sed easily t o a nalyze u nstable o r even marginally stable systems. 6.1 The Laplace Transform T he basic reason for b oth t hese difficulties is t hat for some signals, such as e atu(t) (a &gt; 0 ), t he F ourier t ransform does n ot e xist because o rdinary s inusoids or exponentials o fthe form e jwt ( on account of t heir c onstant a mplitudes) are incapable o f s ynthesizing exponentially growing signals. T his p roblem could be resolved i f i t were possible t o use basis signals of t he form e st ( instead o f e jwt ), where t he c omplex frequency 8 is n ot r estricted t o j ust t he i maginary axis (as in t he F ourier transform). This is precisely w hat is done in t he following e xtended t ransform known' as t he b ilateral L aplace t ransform, w here t he frequency variable 8 = j w is generalized t o 8 = a + j w. Such g eneralization p ermits u s t o u se exponentially growing sinusoids t o s ynthesize a signal J (t).
