Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are not really called functions ... rather generalized function and derivatives are called generalized derivatives.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it would be great if you could make that generalisation more lucid...actually i am stuck and thinking of finding it other way..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1346491565254:dw this is your step function f(t) = u(tt_0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the derivative at t=t_0, would be delta(tt_0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah ... that works as a switch.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how you define derivative at 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1exactly that works as a switch with constant supply

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2at 0, the derivative will be equal to ... value of jump times delta(t)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well don't we count for jump..i mean definition of derivative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2at this particular case ... you jump is just 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2your slope is infinite ... so this acts as inpulse. there a very nice course from mit ocw. particularly exercise.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2at zero ... you have infinite slope

ghazi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1impulse function has infinite slope at zero....actually point of confusion arises when i apply this concept in electrical circuit how come they consider derivative at zero or may be i am not able to correlate that properly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no..working with impulse ramp and unit step function....i feel contradictory

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2don't miss exercise.
