FFT of Square Wave and Sin Wave

When we have FFT of Square wave of a pure real signal with high frequency(close to f(max), less than half of sampling frequency) we see only 2 symmetric high peaks but when we decrease the frequency ...

Discrete Fourier transform of even function

I have a cosine function - Hence it is even. Considering only the real parts of the DFT, on performing DFT, I am getting something like this. Could anybody tell me where I am going wrong: DFT: ...

Why can the FFT always be mirrored in the middle of the x axis? [duplicate]

Plotting the FFT of a signal with Matlab e.g. by the code: y_fft = abs(fft(y)); f = fs*(0:length(y)-1)/length(y); plot(f,y_fft); where ...

FFT of a pure sine wave is not a single peak

For fun, I computed the FFT of a pure sine wave. I chose chose the sample length to be an even multiple of the signal period, so that I don't see windowing-effects. Here is the Matlab code that I used:...

General question about DFT

I am learning Fourier analysis and without any teacher, just trying to read books on my own. I think I have made some decent progress but they are a couple of points which are still very unclear to me ...

How to get some law parameters from its FFT figure?

Given an hidden law $$I(t)=\frac{1}{2}[A+B.cos(2\pi\nu_0t+\phi_0)]$$ I observe its signal with 256 samples and compute its FFT over this interval, and represent the FFT result from 0 to 1 (normalised ...

Sampling of sine wave :which one to choose? start with zeroth sample or 1st sample

sampling rate=200KHz signal freq =1KHz When I sample 1KHz signal I'll get 200 samples. Should I consider 0 to 199 samples? Or 1 to 200? I want only 1 cycle.

Complex signal low pass filter

I'm trying to implement a low pass filter in python for a complex signal but the output doesn't look right. I've created a simple example below where I've mixed a 15Hz complex sine wave and a 30Hz ...

Conjugate symmetry of the DFT of real-valued sequences

I have read about Fourier transformation that real signals are "mirrored" in the real and negative halves of the Fourier transform because of the nature of the Fourier transform. For ...

Why are these excess frequency components in my FFT spectrum? [duplicate]

I am experimenting with digital signal processing and I took the FFT of a sinusoid in Matlab. I got the frequency components that I expected to be present but there are two excess spikes that mirror ...
