Hi, we're learning about the autocorrelation function at uni, and I know it's meant to show similarities between a function and a delayed version of that function. But how does the autocorrelation show these similarities?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, if[tex]x(t)=Asinc(2Wt)[/tex] then [tex]R_x(\tau )=\frac{A^2}{2W}sinc(2W\tau)[/tex]

How can you look at the resulting function and see what the similarities are?

Thanks for the help guys.

David
