Unformatted text preview: j/2 This is the same as negating the frequency. As the frequency of a sine
increases past its Nyquist rate, it wraps around to negative frequency.

Once a signal has been sampled, there is no way to eliminate aliasing (unless
we have some other information about the signal).
Aliasing is minimized by ﬁrst lowpass ﬁltering the signal, then sampling:
f (t ) f¯(t ) h(t )
−!0 /2 !0 /2 ×
!T (t ) f (t ) h(t )
−!0 /2 !0 /2 Lowpass or

t = nT Sampler 32 Any practical anti-aliasing ﬁlter will not be identically zero outside of its
passband. Some aliasing will always occur.
By bandlimiting with the anti-aliasing ﬁlter, we are choosing to distort the
signal in a known way.
This is usually preferable to sampling the non-bandlimited signal, and having
unknown artifacts from aliasing.
Bandlimiting also suppresses noise. EE102A:Signal Processing and Linear Systems I; Win 09-10, Pauly 33 Fourier Series and Fourier Transforms
Frequency domain representation of signals simpliﬁes signal processing,
• Convolution becomes multiplication
• Spectral representation makes signal content easier to understand
Often, Fourier transforms are the only tool you will need.
Some problems involve signals that don’t have Fourier transforms, like
increasing exponentials (ﬁnance, populations, dynamic systems).
For these we need a more powerful tool.
