It is realvalued if and only if ( ∀ k ∈ Z ) S k = ( S k ) * Theory and Examples: 1 . We have seen that the DFT synthesis equation s [ n ] = 1 L L 1 X k =0 S [ k ] e jk (2 π/L ) n , n = 0 : L 1 can be extended outside the time index range n = 0 : L 1 to produce an infinite periodic sequence having period L . This also means that every discretetime sequence that is periodic with period L can be expressed as a sum of L Fourier sinusoids with coefficients given by the (scaled) DFT of the segment of the sequence corresponding to time indices n = 0 : L 1. Not surprisingly, the L Fourier frequencies ω k = k (2 π/L ) (where k = 0 : L 1) are the only distinct values of ω in [0 , 2 π ) such that x [ n ] = e jωn is periodic with period L . 2 . Most periodic signals encountered in continuous time have a similar structure. In other words, they can be written as a sum of continuoustime Fourier sinusoids, whose coefficients are obtained by an operation that resembles the DFT....
