4. (29 points) LTI systems
Consider the following system:
The system takes as input x(t), it first multiplies the input with e
, then sends it through an
LTI system. The output of the LTI system gets multiplied by e
to form the output y(t).

system S1? What can you say about the causality and stability of the overall equivalent
