### Power spectral density vs. FFT bin magnitude

What's the difference between these? Both are measurements of some form of signal power, but surely there's some difference between the power they are measuring?

### Why are magnitudes normalised during synthesis (IDFT), not analysis (DFT)?

In most examples and FFT code that I've seen, the output (frequency magnitudes) of the forward DFT operation is scaled by N -- i.e. instead of giving you the magnitude of each frequency bin, it gives ...

### Identifying the magnitude and impulse response from pole zero plot quickly

I have an exam next week and it's verty certain that a task of this kind will be there. Are there some good tips how to match the right pole zero plot to the right responses? No proof is needed in ...

### How does zero-padding affect the magnitude of the DFT?

Let's simulate sinusoids of two frequencies using the following Matlab code: ...
As seen in this question and answer, to do a spectrogram, it's common to plot either: the square magnitude $|\text{STFT}(\text{frame}, \text{bin})|^2$ ("power spectrum") the magnitude \$|\text{STFT}(\...
