### DTFT frequency range

$$X(e^{j\omega}) = \sum_{n=-\infty}^\infty x[n] e^{-j\omega n}$$ The frequency term $\omega$ in DTFT is normalized as $\omega = \frac{\Omega}{f_\mathrm{s}}$ $\Omega= 2 \pi f$ is the angular ...

### How were windows originally conceived?

I am aware of the common types of windows, (Hamming, Hanning, Kaiser, Tukey, etc etc). However while many books describe them - almost none tell me just how exactly they were derived. What is so ...

### “Dirac Comb” vs “Ones Comb”

While learning sampling theory - I noticed that examples of continuous signal sampling always achieved the goal via multiplying the signal with a "Dirac Comb". I was intrigued by the requirement to ...

### FFT returns large low-frequency power - probably because signal is interpreted as containing cycles that do not fit. How is this called?

So I have a large number of signals like the one in the first picture below and I would like to extract and compare the frequencies within them. I applied a Fourier transform which resulted in ...
