 Signal modelling (rectangular and triangular waveforms) Explanation:You could say "modelling of signals", but it's a bit hair-splitting. Many signals are, ideally, a train of pulses but will become triangular after integration, for example. This may be intended, or (in a non-ideal system) not intended.

 Merci.
 Asker: Thank you very much. I have additional questions, and your answers have checked against a cursory search of the web. I've never translated mathematical terminology before.

-> Not really: square and sawtooth waves are special cases of rectangular and triangular waves. Sawtooths are generally asymmetric; a square wave, though, is symmetric.
