(25 points) Piecewise linear approximations and Fourier transforms. (a) The stretched triangle function is defined by a ( t ) = ( t/a ) = braceleftBigg a-| t | a , | t | a , | t | &gt; a Find F a ( s ). (b) Find the Fourier transform of the following signal. 1 2 2 2 . 5 4 6 t Hint: Think s. (c) Consider a signal f ( t ) defined on an interval from 0 to D with f (0) = 0 and f ( D ) = 0. We get a uniform, piecewise linear approximation to f ( t ) by dividing the inter- val into n equal subintervals of length T = D/n , and then joining the values 0 = f (0) , f ( T ) , f (2 T ) , . . . , f ( nT ) = f ( D ) = 0 by consecutive line segments. Let g ( t ) be the linear approximation of a signal f ( t ), obtained in this manner, as illustrated in the following figure where T = 1 and D = 6. 1 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 5 6 t f ( t ) g ( t ) Find F g ( s ) for the general problem ( not for the example given in the figure above) using any necessary information about the signal f ( t ) or its Fourier transform F f ( s ). Think s, again. 2. (15 points) Hubbard-Stratonovich Formula Show that integraldisplay - e- x 2 e- 2 sx dx = e s 2 ....
