Homework Help: Signals Help, Deconvolution

  1. Nov 2, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Given an input signal and the output signal, I used the deconv function in MATLAB and got a vector of what would be the impulse response and a remainder vector.

    2. Relevant equations
    I know this is bad because (in this situation) the input convolved with the impulse would not give the output signal. I have been asked the question if there is an LTI system that will output y[n] when x[n] is the input and is there any way to implement the system " at least theoretically" in MATLAB.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    As far as the LTI system goes, I am inclined to say no, just because the values don't add up, so again the signal convolved with the impulse response of the filter (impulse response from deconv in MATLAB) does not give the output. I feel like I am on the right path but this is my first course on the matter and would like some input in case I am missing something. Thanks
