Chapter 2

Analyzing Continuous-Time Systems in the Time Domain

Chapter Objectives

  • Develop the notion of a continuous-time system.
  • Learn simplifying assumptions made in the analysis of systems. Discuss the concepts of linearity and time invariance, and their significance.
  • Explore the use of differential equations for representing continuous-time systems.
  • Develop methods for solving differential equations to compute the output signal of a system in response to a specified input signal.
  • Learn to represent a differential equation in the form of a block diagram that can be used as the basis for simulating a system.
  • Discuss the significance of the impulse response as an alternative description form for linear and time-invariant systems.
  • Learn how ...
