Moreover, the rectangular case has a higher peak sidelobe amplitude compared t o t hat of the triangular window. 4 .10 307 * Summary I n C hapter 3 we represented periodic signals as a sum of (everlasting) sinusoids or exponentials (Fourier series). In this chapter we extended this result t o aperiodic signals, which a re represented by the Fourier integral (instead of t he Fourier series). An aperiodic signal j et) may be regarded as a periodic signal with period To - > 0 0, so t hat t he Fourier integral is basically a Fourier series with a fundamental frequency approaching zero. Therefore, for aperiodic signals, t he Fourier spectra are continuous. This continuity means t hat a signal is r epresented as a s um of sinusoids (or exponentials) of all frequencies over a continuous frequency interval. T he Fourier transform F(w), therefore, is the spectral density (per unit bandwidth in Hz). An ever-present aspect of t he Fourier transform is t he duality between time a nd frequency, which also implies duality between the signal I (t) a nd its transform F(w). T his duality arises because of near-symmetrical equations for direct and inverse Fourier transforms. T he duality principle has far-reaching consequences and yields m any valuable insights into signal analysis. T he scaling property of the Fourier transform leads to t he conclusion t hat t he signal b andwidth is inversely proportional t o signal duration (signal width).
