"The transient response of uniform distributed systems with any transfer function that is rational in w=e[square root of Ts] can be analyzed with the basic form of the transfer function [1 over (w-a)] after partial fraction expansion, where the pole a can be real or complex in the w plane. with the complex pole within the stable region in the w plane, there are only two possible combinations of the basic transfer function [1 over (w-a)], i.e. [1 over (w-a)] ł [1 over (w-a*)], for physical realizability. The imaginary part of the transient response of the basic transfer function [1 over (w-a)] can describe the response of the transfer function [1 over (w-a)] - [1 over (w-a*)]; while the transient response of the transfer function [1 over (w-a)] + [1 over (w-a*)] can be observed from the real part of the response of [1 over (w-a)]. therefore, for the basic transfer function[1 over (w-a)], impulse and step responses are computer plotted for various real and complex-conjugate pole locations both within and outside the w-plane region of bounded input-bounded output stability. Some characteristics of the impulse and step responses of this basic transfer function are investigated, by which the relation between the transient response and the stability as a function of pole location is discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
