T he Commutative Property: C onvolution o peration is commutative; t hat is, h (t)*fz(t) = f z(t)*h(t). T his p roperty c an b e proved by a change of variable . In Eq. (2.30), if we let x = t - T so t hat r = t - x a nd dT = - dx, we o btain' T he l eft-hand s ide is t he i nput f (t) r epresented as a s um of all t he i mpulse components i n a m anner i llustrated in Fig. 2.3a. T he r ight-hand side is t he o utput y(t) r epresented as a s um o f t he o utput c omponents as shown in Fig. 2.3e. B oth t he l eft-hand side a nd t he r ight-hand side, by definition, are integrals given b yt 1 :f(r)8(t-r)dT==* 1 : f (T)h(t-T)dT 121 h (t) * fz(t) == (2.28) J~oo f z(x)h(t - x) dx 1 : fz (x)h(t-X)dX = f z(t) * h (t) (2.31) I 2. T he Distributive Property: A ccording t o t his property: y {t) T he l eft-hand s ide expresses t he i nput f (t) as m ade u p o f t he i mpulse components in a m anner d epicted i n Fig. 2.3a. T he r ight-hand expresses t he o utput as m ade u p o f t he s um o f t he s ystem responses t o all t he i mpulse components of t he i nput as illustrated in F ig. 2.3e. To summarize, t he ( zero-state) response y(t) t o t he i nput f (t) is given b y (2.29) h (t) * [fz(t) + h (t)] = h (t) * fz(t) + h (t) * h (t) (2.32) 3. The Associative Property: According t o t his p roperty: h (t) * [fz(t) * h (t)] = [ h (t) * fz(t)] * h (t) (2.33) T he p roofs of (2.32) a nd (2.33) follow directly from t he d efinition of t he convolution integral.
