Hello all,

Are they the same?
Thanking you in anticipation!!!

Thank you for replying. Actually I am not having any specific case at the moment so I was looking for the general answer but as you said it depends on the context so I guess I should wait. Can you suggest a document where I can have the proper idea about both 'Time step and sample time'

Sorry, I don't have a definite recommendation. Wikipedia articles on time series and signal processing could be helpful, but to get reliable definitions of terms, text books in those areas are probably clearest. Also very good to look at is the introductory PDF documentation that goes with the Signal Processing Toolbox and other toolboxes.

I appreciate your efforts but I asked this question here because I was not able to find the suitable document.
