We call X ( w ) the direct Fourier Transform of x ( t ), x(t) the inverse Fourier Transform of X ( w ), and x ( t ) and X ( w ) a Fourier Transform pair. Symbolically this is expressed as: X ( w ) = F [ x ( t )] , x ( t ) = F- 1 [ X ( w )] or x ( t ) X ( w ) Instead of using angular frequency w , one can also use frequency f (where w = 2 f ) the corresponding Fourier Transform pair is: X ( f ) = Z - x ( t ) e- j 2 ft dt, (3) x ( t ) = Z - X ( f ) e j 2 ft df (4) Spectrum G ( w ) is complex = to plot the spectrum G ( w ) as a function of w , we need to plot both the amplitude spectrum , | X ( w ) | vs w , and the phase spectrum , theta x ( w ) vs w , where G ( w ) = | G ( w ) | e j x ( w ) . 1 Conjugate Symmetry Property If x ( t ) is a real function of t , then G ( w ) and G (- w ) are complex conjugates, i.e. G (- w ) = G * ( w ) = the amplitude spectrum | G ( w ) | is an even function, and the phase spectrum x ( w ) is an odd function | G (- w ) | = | G ( w ) | , x (- w ) =- x ( w ) This conjugate symmetry property holds only for real signals. A similar property also holds for the Fourier series of periodic real signals. Existence of Fourier Transform Same as the existence of Fourier series: strong Dirichlet conditions and weak Dirichlet conditions....
