Now, if t he f unction f (t) were itself t o b e periodic w ith p eriod To, t hen a Fourier series representing f (t) over a n i nterval To will also represent f (t) for all t (not j ust over t he i nterval To). A nother i nteresting fact, as seen in Fig. 1.7, is t hat a periodic signal f (t) c an b e generated by a periodic r epetition of any of its segment of d uration To. T herefore, t he t rigonometric Fourier series representing a segment of f (t) o f d uration To s tarting a t a ny i nstant r epresents f (t) for all t. Therefore, it follows t hat i n c omputing t he coefficients ao, an a nd bn , we may use any value for t l i n Eqs. (3.51). I n o ther words, we may perform this integration over any interval o f To.

T he Fourier S pectrum T he c ompact t rigonometric Fourier series in Eq.

We can readily plot amplitude C n vs. w ( amplitude s pectrum) a nd On vs. w ( phase s pectrum). T hese two plots together are the f requency s pectra of f (t). Figures 3.7c a nd 3.7d show t he a mplitude a nd phase s pectra for t he periodic signal 'P(t) in Fig. 3.7b. These spectra tell us a t a glance the frequency composition of 'P(t); t hat is, t he a mplitudes a nd phases of various sinusoidal components of 'P(t). K nowing the frequency spectra, we can reconstruct or synthesize 'P(t), as shown on t he r ight-hand side of Eq. (3.56). Therefore, t he frequency spectra in Figs. 3.7c a nd 3.7d provide a n a lternative d escription-the f requency-domain d escription o f 'P(t). T he time-domain description of 'P(t) is d epicted in Fig. 3.7b. A signal, therefore, h as a dual i dentity: the time-domain id...
