Some short (independent) problems about sinc (a) (4 points) Find the Fourier transform of this sinc: (b) (4 points) Evaluate the following integral: Z -∞ sinc 3 ( t ) dt (c) (4 points) Find the repeated convolution of sinc: (sinc * sinc * ··· * sinc | {z } n convolutions )( t ) Solution: (a) First we note that the sinc has been scaled by 1 /b , shifted by c , and multiplied by a (in that order). So our sinc is c σ 1 /b sinc( t ) = a sinc ± t - c b . Calculating the Fourier transform, F c σ 1 /b sinc( s ) = ae - 2 πisc | b | σ b Π( s ) = a | b | e - 2 πisc Π( sb ) (b) Evaluating the Fourier transform of sinc 3 at zero gives us the desired integral: F{ sinc 3 } (0) = Z -∞ sinc 3 ( t ) e - 2 πi (0) t dt = Z -∞ sinc 3 ( t ) dt The Fourier transform of sinc 3 is Π * Π * Π which we know is Λ * Π . We just need to know the value of this convolution at zero, which corresponds to the area of overlap of the rectangle and triangle functions when both are centered at the origin. Drawing a sketch, we see this value is 3/4. (c) Repeated convolution becomes repeated multiplication in the frequency domain. So our problem corresponds to Π · Π ··· · Π( s ) which fortunately is just Π( s ) . We conclude the repeated convolution of sinc is sinc. 2
