i] means the impulse amplitude and imp(t) is the generalized impulse function.
The same value of the integral is also for the unitary impulse function [DELTA](x, [lambda]) defined by
the denominator del t = 0 and cos 0 = 1, such that the amplitude goes to infinite and, this way, will obtain, again, a periodical unitary impulse function (Figure 6).
We will call, these functions "periodical impulse functions cext of unity amplitude with s [right arrow] [infinity]".
The profile shape of this aberration is generally expressed as an impulse function of width [DELTA]2[[theta].
A good approximation under these circumstances is a Gaussian shape rather than an impulse function.
A better approximation to the aberration function is a sharp impulse function superimposed on a broad impulse function to represent the so called "tube tails".

If we Fourier-invert the frequency data to get the impulse response, we find that this is well fitted by a 2nd order transfer function, which corresponds to an impulse function of the form t(exp(-t/[Tau])) [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1A OMITTED].
By spreading and programming the multiple line spectrum over a wide RF bandwidth ([ or -]5 GHz), a short pulsewidth (pico-second) impulse function can be realized.
