Part of the Communications and Control Engineering book series (CCE)


In this chapter we investigate the response of a linear periodic operator to an input signal x(t), that is a centered, and in a loose sense, stationary stochastic process. The last property means that, Åström (1970)
$$E[x(t)] = 0$$
$$E[x({{t}_{1}})x({{t}_{2}})] = {{K}_{x}}({{t}_{2}} - {{t}_{1}})$$
where E denotes the operator of mathematical expectation and K x (t) is the autocorrelation function of the signal x(t). If we take t1 = t and t2 = t + τ, then
$$E[x(t)x(t + \tau )] = {{K}_{x}}(\tau )$$
and, as is well known
$${{K}_{x}}(t) = {{K}_{x}}( - t).$$
