# Unilateral convolution

For $t \in \mathbb{T}$, the convolution on a time scale is defined by the formula $$(f*g)(t,s)=\displaystyle\int_{s}^t \hat{f}(t,\sigma(\xi))g(\xi)\Delta \xi,$$ where $\hat{f}$ denotes the solution of the shifting problem. The classic definition of the convolution using a shift in the integrand is not appropriate for time scales, since a time scale is not closed under addition and subtraction, but this definition does reduce to the classical definition in the cases of $\mathbb{T}=\mathbb{R}$ and $\mathbb{T}=\mathbb{Z}$.
