# Calculating the inverse DTFT of a signal

There is a signal $y[n]$ with a differentiable DTFT $Y(e^{i\omega})$. How do I find the inverse DTFT of $i\frac{dY(e^{i\omega})}{dw}$ in terms of $y[n]$ (where of course $i = \sqrt{-1}$)?

• Begin with the fundamental $$Y(e^{j \omega }) = \sum_{n=-\infty}^{\infty} y[n] e^{-j \omega n}$$ Then apply differentiation wrt $\omega$ to both sides and try to keep a relation between resulting DTFT and a corresponding new signal $y_2[n]$. Then if you still cannot approach the result, put your progress work here and people will probably help. – Fat32 Mar 2 '17 at 13:36
• @Fat32 thank you, I knew about that equation but wasn't sure how to start so your answer is helpful. I will try it and get back to this thread. – dierensourcan Mar 2 '17 at 14:00

You can develop it relatively easily, anyways, here's a screenshot from wikipedia You should find something like $ny[n]$ (up to a potential factor). Basically, integration in one domain (time or frequency) results in a division by the index, and differentiation by the index, with some multiplicative factor involving $i^n$.
