**FREQUENCY TRANSFORMATIONS**

**1. Define DTFT.**

**2. Define Periodicity of DTFT.**

**3. Difference between DTFT and other transform. **

The DFT
and the DTFT can be viewed as the logical result of applying the standard
continuous Fourier transform to discrete data. From that perspective, we have
the satisfying result that it's not the transform that varies; it's just the
form of the input:

·
If it is discrete, the Fourier transform becomes a
DTFT.

·
If it is periodic, the Fourier transform becomes a
Fourier series.

·
If it is both, the Fourier transform becomes a DFT.

**4. Write about symmetry property of DTFT.**

The
Fourier Transform can be decomposed into a real and imaginary or into even and
odd.

**5. Define DFT pair.**

The
sequence of *N* __complex numbers__ *x*_{0}, ..., *x _{N}*

**6.How will you express IDFT interms of DFT.**

A useful
property of the DFT is that the inverse DFT can be easily expressed in terms of
the (forward) DFT, via several well-known "tricks". (For example, in
computations, it is often convenient to only implement a fast Fourier transform
corresponding to one transform direction and then to get the other transform
direction from the first.) First, we can compute the inverse DFT by reversing
the inputs:

(As
usual, the subscripts are interpreted __modulo__ *N*; thus,
for *n* = 0, we have *x _{N}*

Third, a
variant of this conjugation trick, which is sometimes preferable because it
requires no modification of the data values, involves swapping real and
imaginary parts (which can be done on a computer simply by modifying __pointers__). Define
swap(*x _{n}*) as

Then

**7.Write about Bilateral Z transform.**

The *bilateral* or *two-sided* Z-transform of a discrete-time signal *x[n]* is the function *X(z)* defined as

where *n* is an integer and *z* is, in general, a __complex number__:

*z *=*
Ae ^{j}*

*z *=* A*(*cosj*φ* *+*
sinj*φ)

where *A* is the magnitude of *z*, and φ is the * complex argument* (also referred to as

**8. Write about Unilateral Z transforms.**

Alternatively,
in cases where *x*[*n*] is defined only for *n*
≥ 0, the *single-sided* or *unilateral* Z-transform is defined as

In __signal processing__, this
definition is used when the signal is __causal__.

**9. Define Region Of Convergence.**

The __region of convergence__ (ROC) is
the set of points in the complex plane for which the Z-transform

summation
converges.

coefficients that are multiplied by the data in the course of the algorithm.

**12. State the condition for existence of DTFT?**

of their sequence in time domain.

**20. State parseval’s theorem.**

Consider
the complex valued sequences x(n) and y(n).If

x(n) - > X(k), y(n)ÆY(k) then
x(n)y*(n)=1/N X(k)Y*(k)

**21. Define Z transform.**

The Z
transform of a discrete time signal x(n) is denoted by X(z) and is given by

**GLOSSARY:**

The Transform that used to analyze the signals or
systems Characteristics in frequency domain , which is difficult in case of
Time Domain.

**Laplace
Transform:**

Laplace Transform is the basic continuous
Transform. Then it is developed to represent the continuous signals in
frequency domain.

**Discrete
Time Fourier Transform:**

For analyzing the discrete signals, the DTFT
(Discrete Time Fourier Transform) is used. The output, that the frequency is
continuous in DTFT. But the Transformed Value should be discrete. Since the
Digital Signal Processors cannot work with the continuous frequency signals. So
the DFT is developed to represent the discrete signals in discrete frequency
domain.

**Discrete
Fourier Transform:**

Discrete Fourier Transform is used for transforming
a discrete time sequence of finite length “N” into a discrete frequency
sequence of the same finite length “N”.

**Periodicity:**

If a discrete time signal is periodic then its DFT
is also periodic. i.e. if a signal or sequence is repeated after N Number of
samples, then it is called periodic signal.

**Symmetry:**

If a signal or sequence is repeated its waveform in
a negative direction after “N/2” number of Samples, then it is called symmetric
sequence or signal.

**Linearity:**

A System which satisfies the superposition
principle is said to be a linear system. The DFT have the Linearity property.
Since the DFT of the output is equal to the sum of the DFT’s of the Inputs.

**Fast Fourier
Transform:**

Fast Fourier Transform is an algorithm that
efficiently computes the discrete fourier transform of a sequence x(n). The
direct computation of the DFT requires 2N^{2} evaluations of
trignometric functions. 4N^{2} real multiplications and 4N(N-1) real
additions.
