We will review in this chapter the basic theories of discrete time signals

and systems. The relevant sections from our text are 2.0-2.5 and 2.7-2.10.

The only material that may be new to you in this chapter is the section on

random signals (Section 2.10 of Text)

2.1 Discrete Time Signals

A discrete-time (DT) signal is signal that exists at specific time instants.

The amplitude of a discrete-time signal can be continuous though.

When the amplitude of a DT signal is also discrete, then the signal is a

digital signal.

A DT signal can be either real or complex. While a real signal carries only

amplitude information about a physical phenomenon, a complex signal

carries both amplitude and phase information.

Throughout this course, we use square brackets [ ] to denote a DT signal

and round brackets ( ) g

to denote a continuous time signal.

Example: If the n-th sample of the DT signal

[ ] x n

is the value of the

analog signal

( )

a

x t

at t nT , then

[ ] ( )

2.2 Discrete Time Systems

Let

[ ] T

represents the transformation a discrete time system performed

on its input

[ ] x n

. The corresponding output signal of the system is

[ ]

[ ] [ ] y n T x n

.

The system is linear if

[ ]

1 2 1 2

[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] T ax n bx n ay n by n + +

where

1 2

[ ] and [ ] y n y n

are the responses of the system to inputs of

1 2

[ ] and [ ] x n x n

respectively.

The above equation illustrates the principle of superposition.

Assume the system is linear and let

[ ]

h

h n

be the output of the system when

the input is

[ ] [ ]

k

p n n k

(i.e. a unit-impulse at time n k ). Then according to the linearity property,

[ ] y n [ ]

T [ ] x n

2-7

when the input is

[ ]

[ ]

[ ] [ ]

[ ]

k

k

k

x n x k n k

x k p n

,

the output will be

[ ]

[ ] [ ]

k

k

y n x k h n

The system is time-invariant if

[ ] [ ]

k

h n h n k

,

i.e. the output is delayed if the input is delayed. In this case

[ ] [ ] [ ]

[ ] [ ]

k

y n x k h n k

x n h n

The signal

[ ] h n

is called the impulse response of the time-invariant

system.

While the focus of this course is on linear, time-invariant (LTI) system,

there are many real-life applications where the system is non-linear and

time-variant. A good example is a digital FM demodulator operating in the

mobile radio environment.

2-8

Example: Provide a physical interpretation of a LTI system whose impulse

response is

[ ] [ ] h n u n

Answer: The output of the system is

+

A system is casual if and only if the output at time n depends only on the

input up to time n. According to the equation

[ ]

[ ] [ ]

k

y n h k x n k

,

this means the impulse response

[ ] h n

is zero when

0 n <

.

2-9

Example: A moving averager computes the signal

2

[ ] [ ]

1

M

k M

y n x n k

M M

+ +

from its input [ ] x n . Here

1

M and

2

M

are positive integers. What is the

impulse response of the system? Is the system casual?

Answer:

The output can be rewritten as

,

Compared to the output of the integrator, we can deduce that the impulse

response of the system is

[ ] [ ] ( )

1 2

1 2

1

[ ] 1

1

h n u n M u n M

M M

+

+ +

Since the impulse response is non-zero when

0 n <

, so the system is not

casual.

A real physical system can not be non-casual, i.e. it can not generate an

output before there is an input. So in practice what a non-casual system

2-10

means is that there is a processing delay. For example, you can view the

moving averager as a device that computes the local mean of the signal

[ ] x n

at time

n

after it observes the sample

1

[ ] x n M +

. So

1

M

is the delay.

A system is stable if a bounded input results in a bounded output. The

requirement for having a stable system can be derived from the

input/output relationship of a LTI system, which states that

[ ]

[ ] [ ]

k

y n x k h n k

This means

[ ]

[ ]

[ ] [ ]

k

k

k m

y n x k h n k

x k h n k

x h n k x h m

where is the absolute value operator and

max

x

is the largest magnitude of

the input signal.

So if the impulse response of the system is absolute-summable, i.e. when

[ ]

k

S h k

<

2-11

Example: Is the integrator a stable system?

Answer: Since [ ] 1 h n for 0 n and zero otherwise, the impulse response

is not absolute-summable. Consequently the system is not stable.

Example: Is the moving averager a stable system?

Answer: Yes, because the impulse response consists of only a finite

number of non-zero samples.

Finite Impulse Response (FIR) and Infinite Impulse Response (IIR):

FIR => An impulse response of finite duration, hence a finite number of

non-zero samples. Always stable.

IIR => The impulse response is infinitely long. Can be unstable (for

example the integrator).

the example below.

As far as the input/output relationship is concerned, it really does not

matter what the order of the concatenation is. For the example above, both

possibilities yields the same combined impulse response of

1 2

[ ] [ ] [ ] h n h n h n

2-13

In many applications, we have to concatenate a system to an existing one

so that the combined system yields the desired response. A good example is

the equalizer used in a digital communication system.

Many communication channels introduces intersymbol interference (ISI)

ef. This means the received signal

[ ] r n

depends not only on the data bit

[ ] b n

, but also on some adjacent bits. For example,

1 1

[ ] [0] [ ] [1] [ 1] r n h b n h b n +

where

1

[ ] h n

represents the impulse response of the channel. The objective

of equalizer design is to find a digital filter with an impulse response

2

[ ] h n

so that the combined response of the channel and the equalizer,

1 2

[ ] [ ] [ ] h n h n h n

, is the unit-impulse function. This means after

equalization, we have [ ] [ ] y n b n , i.e. the ISI is removed.

Exercise: Consider an ISI channel with

1

[ ] [ ]

n

h n a u n

, where 0 1 a < < ,

and

[ ] u n

is the unit step function. Determine the equalizer that completely

removes the ISI.

Systems governed by the Linear Constant Coefficient Difference Equation

(LCCDE):

The above equation suggests that current output of the system depends on

the previous output as well as the current and previous input.

2-14

In analyzing the above system, we assume the input is applied at time

0 n

(i.e. [ ] 0 x n for negative n) and the initial state of the system is

defined as

( )

[0] [ 1], [ 2],..., [ ] y y y N Y

(a) Zero State Response (ZSR) response of the system to an unit

impulse applied at time

0 n

, under the condition that [0] Y is the

all-zero vector.

(b) Zero Input Response (ZIR) response of the system due to a non-

zero initial state but no input.

Example:

[ ] [ 1] [ ] y n ay n x n +

Let the initial state be [0] [ 1] y b Y , then

The ZIR is

It is clear that the ZIR corresponds to the bias term in

[ ] y n

. Since it is

independent of the input, the system can NOT be classified as a linear

system. Note that the response of the system to

2.3 Fourier Transform of Discrete Time Signals

Consider the sinusoidal signal

( )

[ ] cos x n A n +

It can be written in terms of two complex exponential functions as

( ) ( )

1 2

[ ]

j n j n

x n A Ae A e

+

+

where

*

j

A

A e A

The complex signal

j n

e

is an important signal in discrete time signal

processing it is an eigenfunction of a linear system and it leads us to the

concept of Fourier Transform of a discrete-time signal.

Again let us use

[ ] T

to represent the operation a discrete time system

performs on its input. A signal

[ ] f n

is an eigenfunction of the system if

[ ]

[ ] [ ] T f n a f n

,

where the constant

a

is called an eigenvalue. This definition is consistent

with that in matrix theory where the eigenvector

v

and the eigenvalue

b

of

a matrix A is defined as

b Av v

.

2-17

Here the matrix A is analogous to our linear system.

As shown in Section 2.2, the transformation performed by a LTI on its

input

[ ] x n

is described by the convolution formula:

[ ] [ ] [ ]

k

y n h k x n k

,

where

[ ] h n

is the impulse response of the system and

[ ] y n

is the

transformed signal or output of the system. If

[ ]

j n

x n e

,

then the output signal becomes

( )

[ ] [ ]

[ ]

[ ]

j n k

y n h k e

h k e e

e h k e

e H e

,

where

( )

[ ]

j j k

k

H e h k e

.

2-18

It is clear from the above analysis that

j n

e

is indeed an eigenfunction of a

discrete-time LTI system with ( )

j

H e

being the corresponding eigenvalue.

In the linear system literature, ( )

j

H e

is called the frequency response of a

discrete-time LTI system.

In general, the expression

( )

[ ]

j j k

k

X e x k e

is called the Fourier Transform of the discrete-time signal

[ ] x n

.

One important property of the Fourier Transform of a discrete time signal

is that it is periodic in

with a period of

2

. This is quite different from

the Fourier Transform of a continuous time signal, which in general is not

periodic.

Example: Express the output of a LTI system in terms of its frequency

response when the input is the sinusoid

( )

[ ] cos x n A n +

. Assume the

impulse response of the sytem is a real signal.

Solution:

- The sinusoidal input can be written as a weighted sum of two complex

exponential functions as

1 2

[ ]

j n j n

x n Ae A e

+

2-19

where

*

1 2

/ 2

j

A Ae A

are the weighting coefficients.

- Since the system is linear, the sinusoidal response is

1 1 2 2

[ ] [ ] [ ] y n A y n A y n +

where

( )

1

[ ]

j j

y n H e e

and

( )

2

[ ]

j j

y n H e e

,

are the outputs of the system when the inputs are

1

[ ]

j n

x n e

and

2

[ ]

j n

x n e

respectively.

- Since the impulse response is real,

( ) ( )

*

[ ] [ ]

j j k j k j

This means we can write the output of the system as

Existence of the Fourier Transform:

- If we set the parameter

a

in the above example to unity, then the signal

becomes a unit-step. The Fourier Transform in this case, however, does

not exist in the finite magnitude sense.

- A sufficient condition for the existence of the Fourier transform (in the

finite-magnitude sense) is that the signal is absolute-summable, i.e.

[ ]

k

S x k

<

The proof is the same as that we used to proof the stability of a LTI

system.

- We can deduce from the above that the Fourier Transform always exists

for signals with finite duration.

function can take on either + or ve value.

When there is a sign change in this function, that corresponds to an

additional 180 degree phase shift.

are shown below.

Question: But then why does the frequency response exist?

Answer: The absolute-summability of a signal is a sufficient condition for

( )

j

H e

< , not a necessary condition.

If we impose the constraint that the magnitude of a valid Fourier Transform

must be finite, is there any reason why we shouldnt impose the constraint

that the derivative(s) of a Fourier Transform should also be finite? After all,

any paremeter associated with a real world signal should be finite, right?

If we impose this additional constriant on the derivative, then the ideal low

pass filter is not a valid frequency response because of the discontinuities

in the spectrum.

2-28

Exercise: Show that a sufficient requirement for

It appears that if we were to be able to deal with a wide variety of signals

in our analysis, we should relax on the requirement that magnitude of a

valid transform or its derivative(s) must be finite. This leads us to the

impulse function in the frequency domain ( )

. Some important

properties of this function are:

1. ( )

0

2. ( )

0

3.

( ) ( ) (0) f d f

With the introduction of this function, we can now have proper definitions

for the Fourier transforms of signals such as a DC signal, a complex

sinusoidal, and the unit-step signal. The fact that these signals exist at

discrete frequencies is consistent with the above properties of the impulse

function.

2.5 Sampling of an Analog Signal

Reference: Sections 4.0-4.3, 4.6 of Text

Now that we know what the Fourier Transform of a discrete time signal

is, we want to relate it to the Fourier transform of its continuous-time

counterpart

To construct ( )

1. Divide

( )

into intervals of width

2 / T

according to the formula

k-th interval:

2 2

T T T T

Although mathematically this equation is only confined to the interval

outside this interval by

making use of the fact that ( )

is periodic in

with a period of

Example: Sampling of a triangular analog spectrum with a one-sided

bandwidth of 480 W rad/s. The sampling frequency, in rad/s, is

and (c) the Fourier transform

is the digital frequency divided by .

It is observed that the summed spectrum ( ) Y j is no longer triangular.

Consequently the Fourier transform

( )

j

X e

in the interval

[ , ]

is also not

triangular. This is known as the aliasing effect and is caused by using too

small a sampling frequency.

The aliasing effect can be eliminated if the sampling frequency satisfies the

Nyquist criterion :

2-44

2

s

W

T

where W is the (one-sided) bandwidth of the analog signal

( )

c

x t

in rad/s.

Proof:

Consider the term ( )

for any

0 k >

. If the Nyquist sampling

criterion is satisfied, this means

1 2 1 1

s

k k k W W

_ _ _

This means the spectral segments

( )

, k=1,2,, are all zero.

Similarly, it can be shown that all the spectral segments with negative k are

zero. Consequently,

( )

1

j

c

X e X j

T T

,

,

i.e. the shape of

( )

c

X j

is preserved after sampling. In this case, the

Fourier transform of the sampled signal is simply a (frequency and

amplitude) scaled version of

( )

c

X j

.

For the previous example involving the triangular

( )

c

X j

, a sampling

frequency of 640 rad/s was used. This is less than the Nyquist frequency of

2 960 W

rad/s. Consequently there is aliasing in the sampled signal.

When the sampling frequency is at or above the Nyquist frequency, say

960, 2 960, 3 960

s

rad/s, then the aliasing disappears and ( )

j

X e

becomes

Fig: Effect of varying the sampling frequency on

is at the Nyquist rate of 960 rad/s, (b) the sampling frequency is twice the

Nyquist rate or 1920 rad/s, and (c) the sampling frequency is three times the

Nyquist rate or 2880 rad/s.

It is evident from the diagram that the spectral width of ( )

in the

interval [ , ] is proportional to the bandwidth to sampling-rate ratio

In practice, it is not possible to calculate

( )

exactly from its samples

because the sinc function is, straightly speaking, infinitely long.

Interpolators that are commonly used in practice are:

- Lagrange,

- Cubic spline

Note that

sinc( / ) t T

is the inverse Fourier transform of the following ideal

low pass spectrum:

Thus ideal interpolation is equivalent to feeding the discrete time signal

as a sequence of (continuous-time) impulses to an ideal low pass

filter, i.e.

( ) [ ] ( ) sinc

c

Again, since the ideal low pass filter can never be implemented exactly

because of the abrupt transitions, we can never interpolate the analog signal

Thus the autocorrelation function of the output process is also independent

of absolute time.

Since both the first and second order statistics of the output process are

independent of absolute time, the process is (wide-sense) stationary.

Let

2.7 Linear Predictiive Coding and the Autocorrelation Function

Consider the last example in Section 2.6 where we have a random process

[ ] y n

governed by the equation

[ ] [ 1] [ ] y n ay n x n +

2-70

Here

a

is a positive constant less than 1 and

[ ] x n

is a white process with

zero mean and unit variance. As shown in Section 2.6, the variance of

[ ] y n

is related to the variance of

[ ] x n

according to the equation

2

2 2

Suppose

[ ] y n

is a sampled-speech signal and we want to send this speech

signal digitally through a communication channel. A simple way is to

quantize each sample into

y

B

bits and feed the resultant bit stream to a

digital modulator to generate the transmitted signal

This encoding method, which is referred to as Pulse Code Modulation

(PCM) in the literature, is not very efficient because

[ ] y n

has a relatively

large dynamic range, at least compared to

[ ] x n

.

Suppose the parameter parameter

a

(which will vary from speaker to

speaker) is known to both the encoder and the decoder. Then a more

efficient encoding scheme can be obtained by first subtracting

[ ] [ 1]

p

y n ay n

from

[ ] y n

to obtain

[ ] y n

bit

Quantizer

y

B

Digital

2-71

[ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] [ 1]

p

x n y n y n y n ay n

and then quantize

[ ] x n

using a

x

B

-bit quantizer. The resultant bits,

together with the parameter

a

(also in quantized form), are then sent to the

receiver. Upon receiving these information, the decoder can approximate

[ ] y n

according to

[ ] [ 1] [ ] y n ay n x n + % %

,

where

[ ] x n %

and

a%

are respectively the quantized versions of

[ ] x n

and

a

.

This encoding scheme, known as linear predictive coding (LPC), is more

efficient than PCM because

[ ] x n

has a smaller dynamic range than

[ ] y n

.

In the speech coding literature,

[ ] [ 1]

p

y n ay n

is referred to as the

predicted value of

[ ] y n

and

[ ] [ ] [ ]

p

x n y n y n

is called the residual or

excitation.

As shown earlier, the autocorrelation function of

.

This means

[1] [0]

yy yy

or

[1]

=

[0]

yy

So as long as

[0] and [1]

yy yy

are known, then the parameter

a

will be

known to both the encoder and decoder. In practice,

[0] and [1]

yy yy

can be

estimated according to

[ ] [ ] [ ].

This suggests that in order to implement the LPC encoder, the signal [ ] y n

must first be analyzed to obtain its autocorrelation function. Once the

autocorrelation function is estimated, then the information will be used to

obtain the prediction filter at the encoder and the synthesizing filter at the

decoder.

2-73

As the parameter

1 a

, the variance of [ ] y n is going to much greater than

that of [ ] x n . Consequently LPC will be much more efficient than PCM.

As

0 a

, the variance of [ ] y n approaches that of [ ] x n and LPC provides

little improvement to the encoding efficiency.

Since

0 a

implies little correlation between samples in [ ] y n while

1 a

corresponds to high correlation, we can conclude that LPC achieves

a higher encoding efficiency because it removes the redundancy in [ ] y n

through linear prediction.

The expression

[ ] [ 1] [ ] y n ay n x n +

represents a first-order model. In

general, speech signals can be modeled accurately using a N-th order model

(typical value of N is 10):

1

[ ] [ ] [ ]

N

k

k

y n a y n k x n

where

[ ] x n

is a white noise. The model also represents a system described

by a Linear Constant Coefficient Difference Equation with

[ ] x n

being the

excitation and [ ] y n being the output.

For the N-th order model, the prediction filter in the encoder computes

provided that the autocorrelation function

A brute-force computation of
