Intuitively

the limit of a pulse of fixed area as its


width tends to zero

Linear & Time-Invariant


Systems (LTI)
If a continuous-time system is both linear and
time-invariant, then the output y(t) is related
to the input x(t) by a convolution integral,

y (t )

x( )h(t )d x(t ) h(t )

where h(t) is the impulse response of the system.

Time-Invariance
Time-shifting the input will cause
the same time-shift in the output.
