##### Fourier analysis
Jump to: navigation search Fourier transforms Continuous Fourier transform ... Related transforms Fourier analysis , named after Joseph Fourier 's introduction of the Fourier series , is the decomposition of a function in terms of sinusoidal functions (called basis functions ) of different frequencies that can be recombined to obtain the original function. The recombination process is called Fourier synthesis (in which case, Fourier analysis refers specifically to the decomposition process). The result of the decomposition is the amount (i.e. amplitude) and the phase to be imparted to each basis function (each frequency) in the reconstruction. It is therefore also a function (of frequency), whose value can be represented as a complex number , in either polar or rectangular coordinates. And it is referred to as the frequency domain representation of the original function. A useful analogy is the waveform produced by a musical chord and the set of musical notes (the frequency components) that it comprises. The term Fourier transform can refer to either the frequency domain representation of a function or to the process/formula that " transforms " one function into the other. However, the transform is usually given a more specific name depending upon the domain and other properties of the function being transformed, as elaborated below. Moreover, the original concept of Fourier analysis has been extended over time to apply to more and more abstract and general situations, and the general field is often known as

##### A Pictorial Introduction to Fourier Analysis
In the late 1960's, Blakemore and Campbell (1969) suggested that the neurons in the visual cortex might process spatial frequencies instead of particular features of the visual world. In English, this means that instead of piecing the visual world together like a puzzle, the brain performs something akin to the mathematical technique of Fourier Analysis to detect the form of objects. While this analogy between the brain and the mathematical procedure is at best a loose one (since the brain doesn't really "do" a Fourier Analysis), whatever the brain actually does when we see an object is easier to understand within this context. Thus, a review of the basic concepts of Fourier Analysis will be very helpful. Several topics are covered within this tutorial.

4. Fourier Analysis And Synthesis
The process of decomposing a musical instrument sound or any other periodic function into its constituent sine or cosine waves is called fourier analysis.
http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/Hbase/audio/Fourier.html
##### Fourier Analysis and Synthesis
The mathematician Fourier proved that any continuous function could be produced as an infinite sum of sine and cosine waves. His result has far-reaching implications for the reproduction and synthesis of sound. A pure sine wave can be converted into sound by a loudspeaker and will be perceived to be a steady, pure tone of a single pitch. The sounds from orchestral instruments usually consists of a fundamental and a complement of harmonics, which can be considered to be a superposition of sine waves of a fundamental frequency f and integer multiples of that frequency. The process of decomposing a musical instrument sound or any other periodic function into its constituent sine or cosine waves is called Fourier analysis. You can characterize the sound wave in terms of the amplitudes of the constituent sine waves which make it up. This set of numbers tells you the harmonic content of the sound and is sometimes referred to as the harmonic spectrum of the sound. The harmonic content is the most important determiner of the quality or timbre of a sustained musical note.

5. Fourier Analysis And FFT
fourier analysis is based on the concept that real world signals can be approximated by a sum of sinusoids, each at a different frequency.
http://www.astro-med.com/knowledge/fourier.html
 Your browser does not support script Fourier Analysis and FFT Introduction Fourier Analysis is based on the concept that real world signals can be approximated by a sum of sinusoids, each at a different frequency. The more sinusoids included in the sum, the better the approximation. The first trace in the above figure is the sum of 2 sine waves with amplitudes chosen to approximate a 3 Hz square wave (time base is msec). One sine wave has a frequency of 3 Hz and the other has a frequency of 9 Hz. The second trace starts with the first but adds a 15 Hz sine wave and a 21 Hz sine wave. It is clearly a better approximation. Such a sum of sinusoids is called a Trigonometric Fourier Series. The terms of the Fourier series for simple waveforms can be found using calculus and many have been published in standard textbooks. The frequency of each sinusoid in the series is an integer multiple of the frequency of the signal being approximated. These are referred to as the harmonics of the original waveform. In the example above, the basic frequency is 3 Hz so we would expect harmonics at 3 Hz, 6 Hz, 9 Hz, 12 Hz, 15 Hz, etc. It turns out that for this particular waveform, all the even harmonics have amplitudes of zero. This is not true for all waveforms. The Frequency Spectrum Each of the harmonic frequencies is defined by a magnitude (amplitude) and a phase. The phase indicates how to shift the harmonic before adding it to the sum. The phase information can be difficult to interpret and its use is restricted to a few specialized applications. The rest of this document is concerned only with harmonic magnitudes.

##### F ourier A nalysis
Fourier's representation of functions as a superposition of sines and cosines has become ubiquitous for both the analytic and numerical solution of differential equations and for the analysis and treatment of communication signals. Fourier and wavelet analysis have some very strong links.
##### Fourier Transforms
The Fourier transform's utility lies in its ability to analyze a signal in the time domain for its frequency content. The transform works by first translating a function in the time domain into a function in the frequency domain. The signal can then be analyzed for its frequency content because the Fourier coefficients of the transformed function represent the contribution of each sine and cosine function at each frequency. An inverse Fourier transform does just what you'd expect, transform data from the frequency domain into the time domain.
##### Discrete Fourier Transforms
The discrete Fourier transform (DFT) estimates the Fourier transform of a function from a finite number of its sampled points. The sampled points are supposed to be typical of what the signal looks like at all other times. The DFT has symmetry properties almost exactly the same as the continuous Fourier transform. In addition, the formula for the inverse discrete Fourier transform is easily calculated using the one for the discrete Fourier transform because the two formulas are almost identical.

• ##### The Physics of Sound
As you know, sound is vibration that propagates through air (or any other medium; don't be fooled by cheap science fiction moviessound cannot cross the vacuum of empty space). What causes the vibration of the air is usually the vibration of other objectsvocal chords, musical instruments, speakers, and so on. Being able to detect and process these vibrations has tremendous evolutionary advantagethat's why higher species of animals have rather sophisticated ears. Most noises in nature, such as those made by wind blowing through branches or by ocean surf breaking at the shore have no distinct frequency signature. They also carry very little useful information for us. What carries more information are sudden changes in volume (a broken branch) or sounds with definite frequency signature (animal call or insect buzz). Detecting changes in volume is rather easy, but recognizing frequency signatures is not.

##### Brief Background
The Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) is one of the most important family of algorithms in applied and computational mathematics. These are the algorithms that make most of signal processing, and hence modern telecommunications possible. The most basic divide and conquer approach was originally discovered by Gauss for the efficient interpolation of asteroidal orbits. Since then, various versions of the algorithm have been discovered and rediscovered many times, culminating with the publishing of Cooley and Tukey's landmark paper, "An algorithm for machine calculation of complex Fourier series", Math. Comp. 19 (1965), 297301. Nice historical surveys are J. W. Cooley, "The re-discovery of the fast Fourier transform algorithm", Mikrochimica Acta III (1987), 3345.

Fourier analysis is a family of mathematical techniques, all based on decomposing signals into sinusoids. The discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is the family member used with digitized signals. This is the first of four chapters on the real DFT , a version of the discrete Fourier transform that uses real numbers to represent the input and output signals. The complex DFT , a more advanced technique that uses complex numbers, will be discussed in Chapter 29. In this chapter we look at the mathematics and algorithms of the Fourier decomposition, the heart of the DFT.

This applet lets you enter an arbitrary function and decompose it into its Fourier coefficients. Check that:
• Any function (almost) can be represented as a Fourier series More Fourier coefficients result in a better approximation by the Fourier series Functions with sharp corners need a lot of Fourier coefficient for a good approximation and have oscillating Fourier representation.

##### FFT of "Bit Pattern"
This applet illustrates what happens when trying to send bits representing a character (coded as the 8-bit ASCI code) though a wire that includes a "low-pass" filter, i.e. frequencies above a certain point are filtered out. Start the applet and press any key. The key is converted into its ASCII code, then into a bit pattern corresponding to that ASCII code. Then a "signal" representing that bit pattern is generated and "send" through a wire that may include a "low-pass" filter. The signal will be distorted. The more frequencies are filtered out, the harder it becomes to reconstruct the signal. For more information, check this

##### Waveform Analysis Using The Fourier Transform
Any signal that varies with respect to time can be reduced mathematically to a series of sinusoidal terms. This idea underlies a powerful analytical tool. By Melissa Ray Weimer
A similar conversion can be done using mathematical methods on the same sound waves or virtually any other fluctuating signal that varies with respect to time. The Fourier transform is the mathematical tool used to make this conversion. Simply stated, the Fourier transform converts waveform data in the time domain into the frequency domain. The Fourier transform accomplishes this by breaking down the original time-based waveform into a series of sinusoidal terms, each with a unique magnitude, frequency, and phase. This process, in effect, converts a waveform in the time domain that is difficult to describe mathematically into a more manageable series of sinusoidal functions that when added together, exactly reproduce the original waveform. Plotting the amplitude of each sinusoidal term versus its frequency creates a power spectrum, which is the response of the original waveform in the frequency domain. Figure 1 illustrates this time to frequency domain conversion concept.

General transform can be rewritten as If P and Q are non-singular (non-zero determinants), inverse matrices exist and If P and Q are both symmetric (M=M^T), real, and orthogonal (M^T M = I), then
and the transform is an orthogonal transform Fourier transform
• The discrete Fourier transform is analogous to the continuous one and may be efficiently computed using the fast Fourier transform algorithm. The properties of linearity, shift of position, modulation, convolution, multiplication, and correlation are analogous to the continuous case, with the difference of the discrete periodic nature of the image and its transform.

##### Fourier Analysis
Fourier analysis of spatial and temporal visual stimuli has become common in the last 35 years. For many people interested in vision but not trained in mathematics this causes some confusion. It is hoped that this brief tutorial, although incomplete and simplified, will assist the reader in understanding the rudiments of this analytic method. At the outset, I would like to acknowledge the valuable e-mail exchanges I had with Dr. D.H. Kelly. Although I obviously must take responsibility for any errors or misconceptions that still remain, I am grateful to Dr. Kelly for helping me to present these difficult concepts intuitively and accurately. The purpose of this section of the book is to familiarize readers with these concepts so that they will not be entirely new and strange when encountered in hardcopy textbooks. A second reason, aimed at students in the early stages of their educational career, is to encourage them to take the appropriate mathematics courses so they can become proficient in the use of Fourier and allied methods. Before proceeding, let's understand one important point. The use of these Fourier methods does not mean that the visual system performs a Fourier analysis. At present it should be understood that this approach is a convenient way to analyze visual stimuli.
