### Constructing frequency domain filter from a 2d spatial kernel

Given a 2d spatial kernel $h$, I want to construct the corresponding frequency filter $H$. In theory, $H$ is simply obtained by calculating the DFT of $h$ using a FFT algorithm. But in practice, there ...

### Comparison between 2 images in Frequency domain

As you can see there are 2 images from the Tom and Jerry cartoon program. In the 1st image both Tom and Jerry are present. But in the 2nd one,only Tom is present.Now,we can clearly see this ...

### Finite and Infinite support in time and frequency domain

It's known that signals with a finite support in time has an infinite support in frequency (talking about Fourier Transforms). A common example that is given for the claim is the triangle function ...

### What does the negative sign mean in the image frequency domain?

When I transform an image from the spatial domain to the frequency domain, some frequencies are negative. What is the meaning of the negative sign? For example:

### Performing classification based on FFT results

It is perhaps important to start with the fact that I am a complete beginner in DSP. I have got a number of audio recordings (of sampling rate 22 kHz) - of bird songs - which I have been trying to ...

### Extract frequencies from PCM signal

I have an PCM (pulse-code modulation) signal. If I want to work out the frequency of a sample $x$ long, I count the number of peaks/troughs of the sample, and divide by $x$. The equivent dB of ...

### Sampling Theorem: T-Sampled Signal

I am stuck in a small question which I am trying to solve. The signal $f$ defined by $f(t) := \text{sinc}(t)$ is to be sampled. How should I draw the illustrations of the $T$-sampled signal \$f_{T} = (...

### Understanding the frequency domain [duplicate]

I'm trying to understand what frequency domain is. I found general explanations on the Internet, for example: frequency-domain graph shows how much of the signal lies within each given frequency band ...

### How should this fft output be intepreted?

I am currently reading some code, so I can understand how this FFT output is actually been stored. I have a function which computes FFT of audio file, and stores is in the format. ...

### What is relationship between entropy and frequency in image

When I was studying spatial frequency and entropy, it occured to me that "is there a relationship between entropy and frequency?". As you can see, if we consider only horizontal line, the frequency ...

### Absolute value based AM envelope detection viewed in the frequency domain

In my understanding when a passband AM signal is demodulated with an envelope detector taking the absolute value restores the original baseband version of the signal and the low-pass filter removes ...

### Is the value of a frequency bin of a DFT-output the average of the 'real' frequency values within that bin's range?

I am wondering whether the value of a frequency bin with a certain resolution is the average of the fourier transform values of the 'real' frequencies within that bin's range.

### Why is modern control theory in the time domain instead of the S-domain?

I am not sure if I am missing something, but from what I read I understand that modern control systems work in the time domain rather than the frequency frequency or S-domain. Wikipedia article ...

### Estimating the SNR of 2-FSK

I have some iq data recordings of a 2-FSK waveform that I've created periodograms from. How do you estimate the SNR of this waveform in the frequency domain? I've heard two opinions: One: Integrate ...

### Why is the size of results from FFT half the size of the input, while that is not the case in image processing?

When dealing with real data, Fourier Transform produces symmetric results and FFT algorithms discards half of it. An input with 1024 points will yield only 513 points in the output. However, in image ...

### How to get Instantaneous Magnitude for a Instantaneous Frequency From FFT?

My understanding if a frequency in my signal doesn't line up exactly with a bin, it is smeared over a few bins to the right and left. How can the instantaneous magnitude be determined? (do I have to ...

### Measuring frequency response with white noise signal

I need to measure a frequency response of an eleсtric circuit (simple like an RC-filter). I suppose that I can generate an input signal that has spectrum like white noise (for example, m-sequence ...
