### Why does this not work: Alt. way to compute the period of a discrete periodic signal that is a sum of 2 complex exponentials

I want to compute the fundamental period of the following discrete time signal: $x[n]= \exp^{(j\frac{2\pi}{3})n} + \exp^{(j\frac{3\pi}{4})n}$ I know I can do this by taking the fundamental periods ...

### What is a periodic signal in image processing?

In the context of image processing (and computer vision), the concept of convolution comes up a lot. Convolution is quite related to the concept of Fourier transform and DFT. In the context of image ...

### Fourier Series of Aperiodic convolution of periodic functions

we were given the following classic exercise: Given two periodic signals $x(t), y(t)$ with fundamental period $T$ with Fourier series coefficients $c_m^x, c_m^y$ respectively, find the Fourier ...

### formula derivation for periodic signal power

Studying DSP on my own. Taking an introductory class. Was given a formula for signal power $$P = \lim_{M\to\infty} {\frac{1}{2M+1} \sum_{n=-M}^M} \lvert x[n] \rvert^2$$ I do understand why the ...

### Periodic signal checking when using $\Sigma$

Is the following signal periodic? $$\sum_{κ=-\infty}^{\infty}\left[\mathrm{rect}\left(\frac{t+2κ}{10}\right)\right]+\cos\left(\frac{π}{75}t\right)$$ where rect is the rectangular signal

### Signal periodicity in discrete-time

Let $x[n]$ be a discrete-time signal, and let $$y_1[n]=x[2n]$$ You have to show that if: $x[n]$ is periodic, then $y_1[n]$ is periodic. $y_1[n]$ is periodic, then x[n] is periodic. So for the ...

### Phantom harmonics when using cosine windows why do they appear and how to avoid them?

Given an $L$ order cosine window, it is possible to show that the width of the main lobe is given by: $$\omega_w = \frac{2 \pi L}{(2N+1)}$$ Where $L$ is the order of the window, $N$ is the maximum ...

### Periodicity of a constant signal!

This can be a very silly question, but I'm quite confused: If we take the Fourier transform of any constant signal, we get an impulse at zero, which says that its frequency is zero and, hence, it is ...

### What is special about the frequency $\omega_0=\pi$ that suddenly causes rate of oscillation decrease?

In Alan Oppenheim's book Signals and Systems a comparison is made between the properties of discrete-time and continuous-time complex exponential signals in section 1.3 pg. 26. Specifically it says: ...

### periodicity coefficient

I wonder if an efficient method exist to compute how much a signal is periodic, it should be ~1.0 when the signal is totally periodic (like a sinusoïdal signal) and ~0.0 when totally random, like a ...

### Fourier Series Coefficients

Question: The fourier series coefficients is given as: $$c_k= \begin{cases} 1 \qquad & k \ \text{ even} \\ 2 \qquad & k \ \text{ odd} \\ \end{cases}$$ the period of the signal is $T=4$, ...
