Shift Operator



Definition: The shift operator is defined by

\

and $\ denotes the entire shifted signal. Note that since indexing is modulo $N$, the shift is circular. However, we normally use it to represent time delay by $\ samples. We often use the shift operator in conjunction with zero padding(appending zeros to the signal $x$) in order to avoid the “wrap-around” associated with a circular shift.

Figure 8.2 illustrates successive one-sample delays of a periodic signal having first period given by $[0,1,2,3,4]$.



Example: $\ (an impulse delayed one sample).



Example: $\ (a circular shift example).



Example: $\ (another circular shift example).
