(6) X (j� ) is p eriodic A p ossible way to check this condition is using Parseval’s Relation for Aperiodic Signals: �� � � 1 2 |x(t)| dt = |X (j� )|2 d� (O & W, Section 4.3.7, p. 312) 2ω −� −� The value computed by each side in the equation above is the energy of the signal. In general, a real ﬁnite signal would have ﬁnite energy if the signal were time-limited, i.e. there exists a real � > 0, such that x(t) = 0, for |t| > �. In contrast, a real ﬁnite signal that is p eriodic has ﬁnite power and inﬁnite energy. Similarly, a signal with a p eriodic Fourier transform has an inﬁnite energy. This means, by Parseval’s theorem, that a signal that has ﬁnite energy will not have a periodic Fourier transform. For a related discussion, see Section 4.1.2, O & W, p.289. Using this approach, we can see that x2 (t) and x3 (t) both have ﬁnite energy, i.e. �� |x(t)|2 d < ∗ , and hence do not have a periodic Fourier transform. −� An impulse is not ﬁnite, so we cannot apply the previous test on x1 (t). However, notice that x(t) has a close resemblance to the Fourier transform of a sine wave (see Table 4.3, O & W, p. 329). By duality, this ind...
