DFT of 2d real signal and Hermitian symmetry

Knowing that DFT of n-values real signal in 1d consists of n/2+1 different values where the second half of the spectrum is complex conjugate of the first one (Hermitian symmetry). However in the ...

Fourier Transforms, symmetry, real/imaginary

I was hoping to clarify if the following was correct: -a real function (neither even nor odd) in time exhibits conjugate symmetry in frequency, so the real part of the frequency response is even, and ...

Result of conjugate symmetry property of DFT

I know one of the properties of DFT for real-valued time series is conjugate symmetry. But what does it imply? In the textbook it says that for a DFT of the length M, this makes M/2-1 spectral ...

What do we achieve by using PAM symbols symmetrical with respect to 0?

I can't seem to find the answer to this one anywhere online. We want them symmetrical with respect to 0 and also at even distance between each other. Why is this important?

Effect of zero padding an odd symmetric FIR filter in the time domain

I have a symmetric lowpass FIR filter with 1149 time domain taps (all real coefficients). For implementation purposes, it would be easier if the filter had 1200 taps. Since it has an odd number ...

Non-symmetrical DFT of real valued signal

I have a homework assignment to take the $64$ DFT of $\cos((5\pi/32)n)$ and $\cos((5\pi/64)n)$. However, for the second case I obtained DFT spectrum such that I have that famous symmetry in real part ...

Why do linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses?

It was given as a fact that linear phase filters have symmetric impulse responses, but I don't see why that has to be true. Can somebody please explain or prove this?

Can you quarter the processing time for real, symmetric FFTs?

The DFT of a real signal is Hermite-symmetric, so you can roughly halve the computation time/memory by not bothering to calculate half the values of the spectrum (and complex conjugating the existing ...

How can a linear operator on DFT vector produce the same vector using only half of the DFT vector?

Suppose there is a DFT vector $\mathbf{X}$ with length N, which presents complex conjugate symmetry around its middle point, i.e., $X(1) = X(N-1)^*$, $X(2) = X(N - 2)^*$ and so forth. $X(0)$ and $X(N/...
