discrete-time systems. I f a continuous-time signal is sampled, t he resulting
signal is a d iscrete-time signal. We can process a continuous-time signal by
processing t he samples of this signal with a discrete-time system.

system is its i nternal description. In contrast, a n external description of a system
is i ts description as seen from t he s ystem's i nput a nd o utput terminals; it can be
obtained by a pplying a known input a nd measuring the resulting o utput. I n t he
m ajority of p ractical systems, a n e xternal description of a system so obtained is
equivalent t o i ts i nternal description. In some cases, however, t he e xternal description fails t o give adequate information a bout t he system. Such is t he case with t he
so-called uncontrollable or unobservable systems. References

energy of sign change, time shifting, or doubling of the signal. What is the effect on
the energy if the signal is multiplied by k?
