Professor teaching us about convolution

  1. Sep 24, 2013 #1
    I'm in class watching my professor teaching us about convolution. However, he keeps doing this by creating graphs and stuff. Is there a method through which I can solve convolution problems without having to draw the graphs?

    A more general question is how do I treat unit step functions in a convolution problem?

    Solve the equations, which is generally a point by point multiplication and summing process. I assume that is what the professor is doing, trying to illustrate the steps.

    Or, use matlab :)

    I don't understand your second question.
