In this paper, signals in (L)_{2}(- \infty , t] , a subspace of the space of square integrable signals defined on (- \infty , t] , are approximated by signals in (L)_{2}^{1}(- \infty , t] , the one-dimensional subspace of (L)_{2}(- \infty , t] spanned by the first function from the set of reversed time Laguerre functions. A system mapping (L)_{2}(- \infty , t] into itself is associated with a system mapping (L)_{2}^{1}(- \infty t] into itself; the latter system is characterized by a gain-exponential describing function. This type of describing function is developed as an analysis tool for studying the transient response of a large class of nonlinear feedback systems. The contraction-mapping fixed-point theorem is used to develop conditions for the existence of a solution prior to the use of the exponential describing function to obtain an approximate solution.
