Transient Response due to Specific Inputs

Systems are often studied in relationship to their zero state response to specific inputs.  Some commonly used inputs include the step response, the impulse response, and the steady state response to a sinusoid.  Because of the relatively large number of different response, and their inherent complexity, the calculation of these responses is covered in depth elsewhere.

Common inputs:
