Hello Tom !

Thank you for your reply. I have the 2nd edition ( Low Price Edition ).

Here is my question rephrased.

The sifting property for the cts dirac delta fn has an INTEGRAL.

The sifting property for the discrete delta fn has an infinite sum in

it.

So we cannot 1st say as is said in the book that delta is the Dirac

delta function and the coolly proceed and apply the sifting property of

the discrete

delta function as has been done below.

Do you see my question ?

Thank you for your effort,

Ashim.

function NOT the continuous Dirac delta function, but just before the

discussion starts it says that delta(t) is the unit impulse function

or the Dirac delta function. Is this a typo ? Shouled this have been

the discrete delta function? If it is’nt, how do the above steps hold?Thank you,

Alex.

They are still representing all of this in the time domain. The sampling

function is a continuous time signal as is x_c(t) as it x_s(t) where the

discrete time representation is x_s[n] = x_s(nT).

I don’t see this as a typo, and I don’t see how this changes anything.
