# Math Help - What is the mathematical bandwidth of the signal?

1. ## What is the mathematical bandwidth of the signal?

Given a signal is angle modulate and is:

Xc(t)=10cos(2 pi 10^8 t + 200cos 2 pi 10^3 t)

Find what is the bandwith?

The analytic representation of this signal is:

$s(t)=10\exp(\text{i}[2\pi f_0 t + 200 \cos(2 \pi f_1 t)])$

so the instantaneous phase is:

$
\phi(t)=2\pi f_0 t + 200 \cos(2 \pi f_1 t)
$

and the instantaneous frequency is:

$
f(t)=\frac{1}{2\pi}~\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\phi(t)= f_0 + 200 f_1 \sin(2 \pi f_1 t)
$

and the bandwidth is therefor the difference between the higest and lowest instataneous frequencies:

$
{\bf{B}}=400 \pi f_1
$
