    Convolution Problem

    I have the problem below I understand how convolution works but I don't understand where this x has come from and how to use it. Do I assume it is x(t)?

     s(t) = 0 (for t <= 0)
     s(t) = 1 (for t > 0)

    convolve  y = h * x

    where h(t) = a^t s(t) for some a \Re and u = s


    How do I solve this?

    Go back and check the question, the x in the convolution is a function of t so yes it is x(t) that is being referred to.
