The standard notation for the unit step function is $u(t)$. I've seen the notation $u_k(t)$, with integer $k$ in Oppenheim's Signals and Systems, where $k$ is the order of the derivative of the Dirac delta impulse. I.e., $u_1(t)=\delta'(t)$, etc. Using the same logic, negative values of $k$ indicate integrals of the Dirac delta impulse. So $u_{-2}(t)$ is the ...
