Commonly the "time domain" function is given in terms of a discrete index, k, rather than time.  This is easily accommodated by the table.  For example if you are given a function: Since t=kT, simply replace k in the function definition by k=t/T.  So, in this case, and we can use the table entry for the ramp The answer is then easily obtained References
