The bandwidth of a signal is the amount of "frequency'' required to sustain the signal unmodified. Actually, there are about a bajillion different definitions for bandwidth, depending on the application of the problem.


\begin{example}Spectra on p. 445. The bandwidth is the highest nonzero
frequency $-$ the lowest nonzero frequency $=9-0 = 9$. \vspace*{3in}
\par\end{example}

\begin{example}The bandwidth of the square wave function is infinite! What
is of...
...Just what is \lq\lq far enough'' depends on the particular
application.
\end{example}

\begin{example}In this example, we will find the F.S. of an important
function, ...
...ot decay! $\vert D_n\vert = \frac{1}{T_0}$ and $\angle D_n =
0$.
\end{example}
