Phasor

For a *real* sinusoid,

the phasor is again defined as and the carrier is . However, in this case, the real sinusoid is recovered from its complex-sinusoid counterpart by taking the real part:

re

The

When working with complex sinusoids, as in Eq.(4.11), the phasor
representation
of a sinusoid can be thought of as simply the
*complex amplitude* of the sinusoid. *I.e.*,
it is the complex constant that multiplies the carrier term
.
