Norms of Time-Domain Functions and Convolution Operators

  • Carl E. Baum


This chapter develops various norms of time-domain functions and convolution operators to obtain bounds for transient system response. Besides the usual p-norm we can define another norm, the residue norm (or r-norm), based on the singularities in the complex-frequency (or Laplace-transform) plane.
