In convolution also we follow the same procedure, e xcept t hat t he 9 pulse is t ime-inverted before it is shifted by t . T his observation suggests t hat 1/Jfg(t) is equal t o f (t) * g (-t) [the convolution of j (t) w ith time-inverted g(t)l, t hat is, 1/Jfg(t) = f (t) * g (-t) (3.31) This can be formally proved as follows. Letting g( - t) = w (t), f (t) * g( - t) = f (t) * w(t) = [ : f(7)W(t - 7) d7 = [ : f (7)g(7 - t) d7 = 1/Jfg(t) To reiterate, 1/Jfg(t) is equal to t he a rea under t he p roduct of t he f pulse a nd 9 pulse time-shifted by t ( without time-inversion), a nd is given by t he convolution of f (t) w ithg(-t).

Here again we c an benefit from t he insight gained from a similar problem in vectors. We know t hat a vector can be represented as a sum of orthogonal vectors, which form t he c oordinate system of a vector space. T he problem in signals is analogous, a nd t he results for signals are parallel to those for vectors. So, let us review t he case of vector representation. 3.3-1 Orthogonal Vector Space Let us investigate a three-dimensional Cartesian vector space described by three mutually orthogonal vectors X l, X 2, a nd X 3, as illustrated in Fig. 3.6. First, we shall seek t o a pproximate a three-dimensional vector f in t erms of two mutually orthogonal vectors X l a nd X 2: f':, E xercise E 3.5 Show t hat t Pfg(t), t he c orrelation function of J (t) a nd get) in Fig. 2.12 is given b y c(t) i n F ig.2.11. \ l Representation of a vector in three-dimensional space. f::e C IXI + C2X2 T he e rror e in this approximation is f':, or f= Autocorrelation Function C orrelation of a signal with itself is called t he a utocorrelation. T he autocorrelation function 1/Jf(t) of a signal f (t) is defined as (3.32) In C hapter 4, we shall show t hat t he a utocorrelation function provides valuable spectral information about t he signal. q XI + C2X2 + e As in t he earlier geometrical argument, we see from Fig 3.6 t hat t he l ength of e is minimum when e is p erpendicular to t he X I-X2 plane, a nd q XI a nd C 2X2 a re the projections (components) of f o n X l a nd X 2, respectively. Therefore, t he c onstants C I a nd C2 are given by formula (3.6). Observe t hat t he e rror vector is o rthogonal t o b oth t he vectors X l a nd X 2. Now, let us determine t he ' best' a pproximation t o f in terms of all three mutually orthogonal vectors X l, X 2, a nd X 3: (3.33) 3 Signal Representation by Orthogonal Sets 184 Figure 3.6 shows t hat a unique choice of C l...
