It is well known that linear time-invariant (LTI) systems produce exponential outputs in response to exponential inputs. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to the fact that the same result holds for the broader class of homogeneous time-invariant (HTI) systems, though the concept of a frequency response is of little use for such systems.
