    something about the constant of integrations?

    Change of variables is worth knowing how to do. \[\int\limits_{0}^{t}f(t-u) du\] we can let v= t-u this means u= t-v (solve for u) assuming t is constant, take the derivative of both sides du = -dv next, the limits are in terms of u, u=0 to u=t using v= t-u, we find the limits in terms of v are v= t-0= t, and v= t-t=0 replace t-u with v, replace du with -dv \[\int\limits_{t}^{0}f(v) (-dv)\] Finally, we can reverse the order of integration (going from t to 0 with -dv is the same as going 0 to t with +dv \[\int\limits_{0}^{t}f(v) dv\] and as v is just a dummy variable of integration, re-write it (if you like) as \[\int\limits_{0}^{t}f(u) du\]

    what is all means is f(t-u) integrated from 0 to t is the same as integrating f(u) from 0 to t You can think of the f(t-u) as starting at the right side (at t) and (because of -u) integrating back to 0, and f(u) is done "normally" from 0 to t

    yes, just the where you start and what direction... but it is the same end-points and the same function. We have to be careful of the sign (going right to left gives the negative of going left to right)

    part ii is showing that convolution can be calculated "either way" flip f, and slide f past g or flip g and slide g past f
