## Signals in Time Domain

A signal is a set of data or information, which can be
represented as a function of time: s (t )
Deterministic signal is a signal whose physical description
is known completely, either in a mathematical form or a graphical
form.

Fourier Transform
Given a time domain signal s(t), its Fourier transform is defined as follows.

Fourier transform:

S( f )

The time domain signal s(t) can be expressed by S(f) using an inverse transform.

## Linear system: in the time domain, a linear system is described in

terms of its impulse response (the response of the system to a
unit impulse (t)).

response is the same no matter when the unit impulse (t) is
applied to the system.

## Baseband Channel and Bandpass Channel

Baseband channel

Bandpass channel

A baseband channel
efficiently passes frequency
components from dc (zero)
to the cutoff frequency Bh Hz.

## A bandpass channel efficiently

passes frequency components
within a certain band, say,
between f c 12 Bh and f c 12 Bh Hz.

## In this course, a baseband channel and a bandpass channel are modeled as an

ideal low-pass LTI system and an ideal bandpass LTI system, respectively.
