Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE)


If one asks a student to characterize the quality of a hi-fi device, he will take a sine wave generator, measure the ratio of the amplitude at the output and input, represent it as a function of frequency, and deduce the bandwidth of the device from that plot.
