Because cos ( - x) = cos (x), (n- cos ( -Ok + 0) = cos (Ok - 0) (8.6) T his shows t hat b oth cos (Ok + 0) a nd cos ( -Ok + 0) have t he same frequency ( 0). Therefore, t he f requency o f cos (Ok + 0) i s 101. A continuous-time sinusoid cos w t s ampled every T seconds yields a discretetime sequence whose k th element ( at t = k T) is cos w kT. T hus, the sampled signal I[k] is given b y I[k] = cos w kT = cos Ok where 0 = wT (8.7) Clearly, a continuous-time sinusoid cos w t s ampled every T seconds yields a discretetime sinusoid cos Ok, where 0 = wT. Superficially, it may appear t hat a discretetime sinusoid is a continuous-time sinusoid's cousin in a striped suit. As we shall see, however, some of t he p roperties of discrete-time sinusoids are very different from those of continuous-time sinusoids. In t he c ontinuous-time case, t he period of a sinusoid can take on any value; integral, fractional, or even irrational. T he discrete-time signal, in contrast, is specified only a t i ntegral values of k. Therefore, t he period must be a n integer (in terms of k ) or a n integral multiple of T (in terms of variable t). S ome Peculiarities o f D iscrete-Time Sinusoids T here are two unexpected properties of discrete-time sinusoids which distinguish t hem from their continuous-time relatives. 1. A c ontinuous-time sinusoid is always periodic regardless of the value of its frequency w. B ut a discrete-time sinusoid cos Ok is periodic only if 0 is 211" t imes some rational number ( is a r ational number). 2. A continuous-time sinusoid cos w t has a unique waveform for each value of w. I n contrast, a sinusoid cos Ok does n ot have a unique waveform for each value of O. In fact, discrete-time sinusoids with frequencies separated by multiples of 211" are identical. Thus, a sinusoid cos Ok = cos (0+211")k = cos (0+411")k = .... We now examine each of these peculiarities. £r 1 N ot All D iscrete-Time S inusoids Are Periodic A discrete-time signal I[k] is said t o be N o-periodic if I[k] = I[k + No] (8.8) 548 8 Discrete-time Signals a nd Systems for some positive integer No. T he smallest value of No t hat satisfies Eq. (8.8) is t he p eriod of f[k]. F igure 8.9 shows a n example of a periodic signal of period 6. Observe t hat e ach period contains 6 samples (or values). I f we consider t he first cycle to s tart a t k = 0, t he l ast sample (or value) in this cycle is a t k = No - 1 = 5 ( not a t k = N o = 6). Note also t hat, by definition, a periodic signal must begin a t k = - 00 ( everlasting signal) for t he reasons discussed in Sec. 1.2-4. 8.2 549 Some Useful Discrete-time Signal models ,I!I'III,III '1lI,Ill ,... ,IiI.
