I. INTRODUCTION Signals are physical quantities that transmit information in their patterns of deviation. To simplify the analysis and design of signal processing systems is vital to represent signals by mathematical functions of one or more independent variables. The essential mathematical aspects of signal processing deal with ideal discrete-time signal processing systems, and ideal A/D and D/A converters. Digital signal processing involves the conversion of analog signals into digital, processing the obtained sequence of finite precision numbers using a digital signal processor or general purpose computer, and if necessary, converting the resulting signal sequence back into analog form. The most widely used for analysis and design is MATLAB, a numerical computing environment. MATLAB uses the a computer algebra system symbolic engine for graphical multi-domain simulation and model-based design of dynamic and embedded systems. II. GENERATION DATA USING MATLAB A.

III. ANALYSIS OF SIGNALS A. Family of continuous-time sinusoids: The continuous-time sequence is a sequence whose value y(t) is defined for every value of the independent variable t (time). The general representation of such sequence is denoted by Eq.12. (12) where A is amplitude, angular frequency (rad/sec), phase shift (rad).

Family of discrete-time sinusoids: The discrete-time sequence is a sequence whose value y[n] is defined only at a discrete set of values of the independent variable n (usually the set of integers). The general representation of such sequence is denoted by Eq.13. (13) where A is amplitude, angular frequency (rad/sample), phase shift (real constant). A plot of the family of the discrete-time sinusoids at frequencies =0, =0.1, =0.2, =0.4, =1, =1.1, =1.2 appears in Fig.11. The Fig.11 represents Bizarre property #2 according to which, frequencies in the neighborhood of =0 or 2k are called low frequencies, whereas, frequencies in the neighborhood of = 0r (2k+1) are called high frequencies. C. Convolution: Convolution is a mathematical way of combining two signals to form a third signal. Using the strategy of impulse decomposition, systems are described by a signal called the impulse response. Convolution is important because it

relates the three signals of interest: the input signal, the output signal, and the impulse response. The implementation of such technic is represented at Fig.12.a trough Fig.12.f.

D. Convolution properties: From a mathematical viewpoint the roles of h[n] and x[n] in the convolution sum are equivalent. However, in the context of linear time-invariant systems, the roles played by the impulse response and the input are not equivalent. The nature of h[n] determines the effect of the system on the input signal x[n]. Since all linear time-invariant systems are described by a convolution sum, Fig.13.a through Fig.13e represents the properties of convolution to study their properties and determine the impulse response of interconnected systems.
