We have defined sinusoids and extended the definition to include complex
sinusoids. We now extend one more step by allowing for *exponential
amplitude envelopes*:

When , we obtain

Defining
, we see that the generalized complex sinusoid
is just the complex sinusoid we had before with an *exponential envelope*:
