The Fourier transform we’ll be interested in signals defined for all t the Fourier transform of a signal f is the function F ( ω ) = −∞ f ( t ) e jωt dt F is a function of a real variable ω ; the function value F ( ω ) is (in general) a complex number F ( ω ) = −∞ f ( t ) cos ωt dt j −∞ f ( t ) sin ωt dt • | F ( ω ) | is called the amplitude spectrum of f ; F ( ω ) is the phase spectrum of f notation: F = F ( f ) means F is the Fourier transform of f ; as for Laplace transforms we usually use uppercase letters for the transforms ( e.g. , x ( t ) and X ( ω ) , h ( t ) and H ( ω ) , etc.) The Fourier transform 11–2
Fourier transform and Laplace transform Laplace transform of f F ( s ) = 0 f ( t ) e st dt Fourier transform of f G ( ω ) = −∞ f ( t ) e jωt dt very similar definitions, with two differences: Laplace transform integral is over 0 t < ; Fourier transform integral is over −∞ < t < Laplace transform: s can be any complex number in the region of convergence (ROC); Fourier transform: lies on the imaginary axis The Fourier transform 11–3

therefore, if f ( t ) = 0 for t < 0 , if the imaginary axis lies in the ROC of L ( f ) , then G ( ω ) = F ( ) , i.e. , the Fourier transform is the Laplace transform evaluated on the imaginary axis if the imaginary axis is not in the ROC of L ( f ) , then the Fourier transform doesn’t exist, but the Laplace transform does (at least, for all s in the ROC) if f ( t ) = 0 for t < 0 , then the Fourier and Laplace transforms can be very different The Fourier transform 11–4

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
