In practice, we make it realizable by delaying the impulse response by T / 2. This merely delays the o utput of the filter by T / 2. I f a signal is s ampled a t t he Nyquist r ate :F. = 2 B Hz, t he s pectrum F(w) consists of repetitions of F (w) w ithout any gap between successive cycles, as depicted in Fig. 5.5a. To recover J (t) from J (t), we need t o pass t he s ampled signal J (t) t hrough a n i deallowpass filter, shown d otted in Fig. 5.5a. As seen in Sec. 4.5, such ~ filter is unrealizable; i t c an be closely approximated only with infinite time delay I II t he response. In other words, we c an recover t he signal J (t) from its samples with infinite time delay. A practical solution to this problem is t o sample t he signal ~ a r ate higher t han t he Nyquist r ate (:F. > 2B or W s > 411" B ).

We c an demonstrate (see P rob. 5.1-10) t hat a signal cannot be timelimited a nd b andlimited simultaneously. I f a signal is timelimited, i t c annot be bandlimited a nd vice versa (but it can be simultaneously nontimelimited and nonbandlimited). Clearly, all practical signals, which are necessarily timelimited, are nonbandlimited; they have infinite bandwidth, a nd t he s pectrum F(w) consists of overlapping cycles of F(w) r epeating every F s Hz (the sampling frequency)' as i llustrated in Fig. 5.6. Because of infinite bandwidth in this case, t he s pectral overlap is a c onstant feature, regardless of t he sampling rate. Because of t he overlapping tails, F (w) no longer has complete information a bout F(w), a nd i t is no longer possible, even theoretically, t o recover f (t) from t he s ampled signal f (t).
