T he e ssential b andwidth B for t he s ignal e -atu(t), u sing 95% e nergy c riterion, was d etermined i n E xample 4.16 t o b e 2.02a Hz. -For lowpass signals, the essential bandwidth may also be defin~ as a frequency at which the value of the amplitude spectrum is a small fraction (about 1%) of lts peak value. In Example 4.16, for instance, the peak value, which occurs at w = 0, is 1/a. ,p J(t) = J (t) * J( - t) (4.68b) F rom Eq. (4.68b) i t is clear t hat , pf(-t) = j (-t) * J (t) = , pf(t) Therefore, for real J (t), a utocorrelation f unction ,p f (t) is a n even function of t. T he Fourier t ransform o f Eq. (4.68b) yields ,pJ(t) <=> IF(w)12 (4.69) Therefore, t he F ourier t ransform o f t he a utocorrelation f unction is its energy spectral d ensity IF(w)12. I t is clear t hat ,pf(t) p rovides t he s pectral i nformation of J (t) directly. T he d irect link of t he a utocorrelation function t o t he s pectral i nformation c an be explained intuitively as follows. T he a utocorrelation function ,p f (t) is t he correlation of a signal w ith i tself delayed by t seconds. A signal J (t) c orrelates perfectly with itself w ith zero delay. B ut as t he d elay increases, t he s imilarity decreases. Thus, t he a utocorrelation f unction , pf(t) is a nonincreasing function of t . I f J (t) is a slowly varying signal (low frequency signal), i t c hanges slowly w ith t. Consequently such a signal will show considerable similarity o r c orrelation w ith i tself even for relatively large delay. T he a utocorrelation function ,p f ( t ) decays slowly w ith t a nd h as a larger width. O n t he o ther h and, for a rapidly varying signal, t he signal similarity will decrease rapidly w ith d elay t a nd ,p f (t) h as a s maller width. Thus, t he s hape o f , pf(t) h as a direct link t o s pectral i nformation of J (t). 4.7 A pplication t o C ommunications: A mplitude Modulation M odulation causes a s pectral s hift in a signal a nd is used t o g ain certain advantages mentioned in Sec. 4.3-5.
