# Questions tagged [hilbert-transform]

Hilbert Transform is an operator of a function of time or frequency domain that, unlike the Fourier Transform, returns a function in the same domain. The Hilbert Transform of $x \left( t \right)$ essentially preserves magnitude and shifts the phase of all positive frequency components by -90° (Also shifts the phase of all negative frequencies by +90°).
