### Conjugation in Fourier Transform

I have a very simple question. In Oppenheim book, it says that: If CT Fourier transform of $x(t)$ is $X(j\omega)$ then, CT Fourier transform of $x^*(t)$ is $X^*(-j\omega)$. What I can't ...

### Result of conjugate symmetry property of DFT

I know one of the properties of DFT for real-valued time series is conjugate symmetry. But what does it imply? In the textbook it says that for a DFT of the length M, this makes M/2-1 spectral ...

### Fourier Transform gives unexpected results: signal reversal and conjugation

As far as I understand the math you can reverse a real valued signal by Fourier transformation, taking the complex conjugate of the result and inverse Fourier transformation, i.e. \...

### IFFT gives complex values in Matlab

I have frequency data from a VNA. I am trying to convert to time domain, and I can't figure out why I am getting complex valued time domain data. This is for ISAR measurements, and I can't get passed ...

### How to interpret output of matched filter with complex input?

I have implemented a matched filter based on the Fourier Transform approach. In the real numbers domain that means that I use as the coefficients of my filter (B) the inverted time-samples of the ...

### please help me solve the question which proving X[N-k] is the complex conjugate of X[k] [closed]

Show for the DFT that if all x[n] are real, then X[N - k] is the complex conjugate of X[k] for k > 0. (i.e. if X[k] is a + bi, then X[N - k] is a - bi)

Suppose there are two independent signals, $s(t-\tau)$ and $n(t)$, and they are doubtly uncorrelated so that $\mathbb{E}${$s(t-\tau)\times n(t)$}=0. I wonder if the equation $\mathbb{E}${$\frac{\... 0 votes 1 answer 4k views ### Meaning of Multiplying a complex number with its conjugate While reading Estimation of Symbol Timing Offset, i came across an equation like multiplying a signal with its conjugate. $$\hat{\delta} = \arg \max_{\delta} \sum_{i=\delta}^{N_g-1+\delta} \left|y^*(... • 357 0 votes 1 answer 62 views ### Calculation confusing of conjugate in CT fourier transform when calculate conjugate of$$X(f)=\int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} x(t)e^{-j2\pi ft}dt ,\tag{1}$$I can get$$X^*(f)=\int_{-\infty}^{+\infty} x(t)^*e^{j2\pi ft}dt ,\tag{2}$$so$$F[x^*(t)]=X^*(-f).\tag{3}$$... • 3 0 votes 1 answer 478 views ### Intuition of odd and even complex conjugate symmetry definition of DFT/DTFT so that$X(e^{j w})=X_{e}\left(e^{j w }\right)+X_{o}\left(e^{j w}\right)\$

I have been reading through my courses DSP slides and came across something which was not really taught in detail. You can look up here for reference, it is stated almost identical. Given the ...
