Basic definitions SYSTEM Signal Theory is related to modeling of both:
input signals output Signal – variation of some physical quantity in (t;x,y,z). Input signals – signals driving the system. Output signals – response of the system to input signals. Signal Theory is related to modeling of both: signal properties, signal processing in systems. Signal/system model – description of signal/system using functions or differential/integral equations „Signal Theory” Zdzisław Papir

TILS transfer function
The transfer function of any TILS: is defined as a ratio of the system response to the exponential driving function. The transfer function can be interpreted as a TILS „amplification”. „Signal Theory” Zdzisław Papir

Summary Signal Theory is related to modeling of both:
signal properties, signal processing in systems. In time-invariant models both signal parameters and system characteristics do not depend on time. In linear models the system response to a composite input signal is combination of system responses to component signals. The exponential signal is an invariant to Linear Time-invariant Systems (TILS). The transfer function of any TILS is defined as a ratio of the system response to the exponential driving function. „Signal Theory” Zdzisław Papir

Summary The transfer function of the TILS = (R, L, C) can be derived from a differential equation or using theorems of the circuit theory. The TILS response to a harmonic excitation is a harmonic signal as well. The frequency remains unchanged. Amplitude and phase can be derived from amplitude and phase functions. „Signal Theory” Zdzisław Papir
