Put A = p 2 2 C1 + C2 and take φ such that cos φ = C1 /A and sin φ = C2 /A (this is possible since (C1 /A)2 +(C2 /A)2 = 1). Now f1 (t)+f2 (t) = A(cos ωt cos φ− sin ωt sin φ) = A cos(ωt + φ).

phase and amplitude response the frequency response follows: H(ω) = 2 sin(ω/2)e−iω/2 /ω. 1.11 a The frequency response of the cascade system is H1 (ω)H2 (ω), since the reponse to eiωt is ﬁrst H1 (ω)eiωt and then H1 (ω)H2 (ω)eiωt . b The amplitude response is | H1 (ω)H2 (ω) | = A1 (ω)A2 (ω). c The phase response is arg(H1 (ω)H2 (ω)) = Φ1 (ω) + Φ2 (ω). ˛ ˛ √ a The amplitude response is | 1 + i | ˛ e−2iω ˛ = 2. b The input u[n] = 1 has frequency ω = 0, initial phase 0 and amplitude 1. Since eiωn → H(eiω )eiωn , the response is H(e0 )1 = 1 + i for all n. c Since u[n] = (eiωn + e−iωn )/2 we can use eiωn → H(eiω )eiωn to obtain that y[n] = (H(eiω )eiωn + H(e−iω )e−iωn )/2, so y[n] = (1 + i) cos(ω(n − 2)). d Since u[n] = (1 + cos 4ωn)/2, we can use the same method as in b and c to obtain y[n] = (1 + i)(1 + cos(4ω(n − 2)))/2. a The power is the integral of f 2 (t) over [−π/ | ω | , π/ | ω |], times | ω | /2π. Now cos2 (ωt + φ0 ) integrated over [−π/ | ω | , π/ | ω |] equals π/ | ω | and cos(ωt) cos(ωt + φ0 ) integrated over [−π/ | ω | , π/ | ω |] is (π/ | ω |) cos φ0 . Hence, the power equals (A2 + 2AB cos(φ0 ) + B 2 )/2. R1 b The energy-content is 0 sin2 (πt) dt = 1/2. The power is the integral of | f (t) |2 over [−π/ | ω | , π/ | ω |], times | ω | /2π, which in this case equals | c |2 . a The amplitude response is | H(ω) | = 1/(1 + ω 2 ). The phase response is arg H(ω) = ω. b The input has frequency ω = 1, so it follows from eiωt → H(ω)eiωt that the response is H(1)ieit = iei(t+1) /2. a The signal is not periodic since sin(2N ) = 0 for all integer N . iω b The frequency response H(eiω ) equals A(eiω )eiΦe , hence, we obtain iω iω 2 that H(e ) = e /(1 + ω ). The response to u[n] = (e2in − e−2in )/2i is then y[n] = (e2i(n+1) − e−2i(n+1) )/(10i), so y[n] = (sin(2n + 2))/5. The amplitude is thus 1/5 and the initial phase 2 − π/2. a If u(t) = 0 for t < 0, then the integral occurring in y(t) is equal to 0 for t < 0. For t0 ≥ 0 the expression u(t − t0 ) is also causal. Hence, the system is causal for t0 ≥ 0. b It follows from the boundedness of u(t), so | u(τ ) | ≤ K for some constant K, that y(t) is also bounded (use the triangle inequality and the inequality from exercise 1.9b). Hence, the system is stable. c If u(t) is real, then the integral is real and so y(t) is real. Hence, the system is real. d The response is Z t y(t) = sin(π(t − t0 )) + sin(πτ ) dτ = sin(π(t − t0 )) − 2(cos πt)/π.

Now use deﬁnition 8. a The function pa has a jump of magnitude 1 at t = −a/2 and of magnitude −1 at t = a/2.17 8. so this deﬁnition is correct and it gives a mapping from S to C. then T (−t) = T (t) (deﬁniton 8. b The function is diﬀerentiable outside t = 1 and the ordinary derivative is 1 for t < 1 and 2t − 2 for t > 1.10 has a jump of magnitude 1 at t = 0.

Now apply the product rule for diﬀerentiation and write the result as −f (0) δ(t). so it follows from the jump formula that ( (t) sin t) = (t) cos t. it follows from the jump formula that | t | = sgn t (at t = 0 there is no jump and outside t = 0 this equality holds for the ordinary derivatives).25 . so f (t) − af (t) = δ(t) as distributions. 8. then p(t)δ(t − a). 8. the limit exists and it will be R∞ equal to −∞ φ(t) dt. t · pv(1/t) = 1.

Since the degree of the numerator is larger than the degree of the denominator.

it follows that Y (s) = 1/(s + 1)2 and so (inverse Laplace transform) y(t) = te−t . so y (t) = 2 (t−1)(4e2t−2 − et−1 ) + 2δ(t − 1). so the system is not stable. 0 0 Here e−τ and eτ cancel each other and the integral that remains can be calculated by an integration by parts. we can substitute s = iω into H(s) to obtain the frequency response 1 + 1/(iω + 1)2 . The derivative at t = 0 can be obtained from the deﬁnition of the derivative (and e. A partial fraction expansion (in the variable y = s2 ) results in 4/(s2 + 4) − 4/(s2 + 16) and from table 7 it then follows that y(t) = 2 sin 2t − sin 4t. Thus. Since δ ∗ u = u we only need to calculate te−t ∗ u.g. b Partial fraction expansion of H(s) shows that H(s) = (1/3(s − 4)) − (1/3(s − 1)) and from table 7 we then obtain that h(t) = (e4t − et )/3. so H(s) = Y (s)/U (s). Now h has a jump 1 at t = 0. b Since h has no jump at t = 0 we have that h (t) = 2e2t − et (in the sense of distributions). Since y has no jump at t = 0 and y also has no jump at t = 0.2 Again use the important formula Y (s) = H(s)U (s).5 . Next we determine y(t) using the Laplace transform: Y (s) = H(s)U (s) and since U (s) = 1/((s+1)2 +1) (table 7 and a shift in the s-domain). The inverse Laplace transform gives h(t) = δ(t) − δ (t) + 4 cos 2t. From tables 7 (for te−t ) and 9 (for δ) it follows immediately that H(s) = 1 + 1/(s + 1)2 . using De l’Hˆpital’s rule) and we o indeed obtain that y (0) = 0. So in ordinary sense y(t) does indeed satisfy the diﬀerential equation.4 14. so h (t) = 4e2t − et + δ(t).

This gives te−t − sin te−t and so y(t) = u(t) + te−t − sin te−t = te−t . a It is clear that y(0) = 0. c Similar as in part b: there is no jump at t = 1 and so y (t) = 2 (t − 1)(2e2t−2 −et−1 ).1 a We have to determine the Laplace transform H(s) of h(t).21) will give the same result (outside t = 0 the derivative can be taken in ordinary sense). Taking Laplace transforms of the left. In this case U (s) = 1/s2 and Y (s) = 1/s2 − s/(s2 + 4). d Either calculate the convolution product (h ∗ u)(t) or use Laplace transforms. so H(s) = 1 − s3 /(s2 + 4) = 1 − s + 4s/(s2 + 4) (divide s3 by s2 + 4). Now y has a jump 2 at t = 1. in general the latter is preferable and we will apply it here. this function is not absolutely integrable. the jump formula (8. y − 3y + 2y = 2δ(t − 1).9) we obtain that H(s) = 1/(s2 − 5s + 4) = 1/((s − 1)(s − 4)) and its zeroes do not satisfy Re s < 0.

Let Y (s) be the Laplace transform of y(t). Y (s) = (s − 1)(s2 3 3s − 11 3s2 − 14s + 14 + 2 = . t] gives the step response a(t) = (1 − e−Rt/L )/R. where p = aE/(R(a2 + 1/R2 C 2 )). The inverse transform of this is y(t) = (t − a)(1 − e−(t−a)R/L )/R (use a shift in the time-domain). it is much simpler here to use time-invariance: the response to (t − a) is a(t − a) = (t − a)(1 − e−R(t−a)/L )/R.12 Partial fraction expansion gives Y (s) = 31 3 19 − + .10 14. 12(s + 1) 8(s − 1) 24(s − 5) From table 7 we obtain the inverse Laplace transform y(t) = (62e−t − 9et + 19e5t )/24. the system is stable. d Use time-invariance (and linearity): Eδ(t − 3) has as response Eh(t − 3) = E (t − 3)e−(t−3)/RC /R (h(t) follows from part a).9)) and so H(s) has only one zero s = −1/RC. Let Y (s) be the Laplace transform of y(t). c As in part b it now follows that Q(s) = aE/(R(s + 1/RC)(s2 + a2 )). The inverse transform of this is q(t) = EC(1 − e−t/RC ) and since i(t) = q (t) it follows that i(t) = Ee−t/RC /R. hence. a From the diﬀerential equation we get H(s) = 1/(L(s + R/L)) (use (14. the system is stable. c Let V be the Laplace transform of v. e Use time-invariance (and linearity): 3δ(t − 1) has response 3h(t − 1) = (t − 1)(e4t−4 − et−1 ). then we obtain from the differential equation and the initial conditions y(0) = 3 and y (0) = 1 (and tables 7 and 8) that (s2 Y − 3s − 1) − 4(sY − 3) − 5Y = 3/(s − 1). and partial fraction expansion results in Q(s) = p(1/(s + 1/RC) − s/(s2 + a2 ) + 1/(RC(s2 + a2 ))). Since y(0) = 0 and y (0) = 1 it follows that s2 Y (s) − 1 + Y (s) = 1/s2 .

The inverse Laplace transform of Y (s) is y(t) = t. However. Partial fraction expansion results in Y (s) = (e−as /R)(1/s − 1/(s + R/L)). 14. so (s2 + 1)Y (s) = 1 + 1/s2 = (s2 + 1)/s2 and thus Y (s) = 1/s2 . then it follows that Y (s) = V (s)H(s) = e−as /(Ls(s + R/L)). The inverse transform of this is q(t) = p(e−t/RC − cos at + (1/aRC) sin at).9)) and so H(s) has only one zero s = −R/L. Solving for Y gives (s2 − 4s − 5)Y (s) + 11 − 3s = 3/(s − 1). then we obtain from the diﬀerential equation (and tables 7 and 8) that (s2 Y (s)−sy(0)−y (0))+Y (s) = 1/s2 .8 14.58 Answers to selected exercises for chapter 14 Y (s) = U (s)H(s) = 1/((s − 1)(s − 4)(s − 2)) we use partial fraction expansion: 1 1 1 Y (s) = − + .
