INTRODUCTION
What is a Signal?
•
(
DEF) Signal : A signal is formally
defined as a
function
of one or more
variables, which
conveys information
on the nature of physical phenomenon.

defined as an entity that manipulates
one or more signals to accomplish a
function, thereby yielding new signals.

The incorrect way of applying the precedence rule. (a) Signal
x

(b) Time

scaled signal
v
(

(2
t
). (c) Signal
y
(

shifting
v
(
t

x
(2

) by 3 time units, which yields
y

x
