### Link between DFS, DFT, DTFT

Yes your understanding is basically correct. The 1st paragraph (2 lines) expresses the fundamental relation between the DFS and the DFT of a finite-length sequence $x[n]$ while the 2nd paragraph tries ...

### Does the DTFT of $\frac{u[n-1]}{n}$ exist?

Note that the sequence $$x[n]=\frac{u[n-1]}{n}\tag{1}$$ is in $\ell^2(\mathbb Z)$ because $$\sum_{n\in\mathbb{Z}}|x[n]|^2=\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{n^2}=\frac{\pi^2}{6}<\infty\tag{2}$$ but it ...

### Difference between CTFT and DTFT?

The difference is pretty quickly explained: the CTFT is for continuous-time signals, i.e., for functions $x(t)$ with a continuous variable $t\in\mathbb{R}$, whereas the DTFT is for discrete-time ...

### Difference between CTFT and DTFT?

I'll add a couple more facts, to sorta complete the definitions of things. As Matt represented the CTFT and DTFT, they are both shown as special cases of the Laplace Transform and Z Transform (...

### why $-$ sign in DTFT pair for constant

It can also have a $+$ sign, there's no difference. Write down a part of the sum (around index $l=0$) and try to see that in both cases you're summing the same terms, just in a different order. More ...

### Is possible reach the DFT if I have the DTFT?

The DFT is a sampled version of the DTFT only for finite length signals. Otherwise, there is no point in comparing the DTFT with the DFT because you can only compute the DFT for finite length (or ...

### Why DFT is used for approximating CTFT when you can approximate CTFT-integral itself?

Assuming that future vistors won't take the time to read all the comments, I'd like to give a very simple and straightforward interpretation of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) as an approximation ...

### Difference in having even number and odd number of samples in DFT?

We know that DFT is just a sampled version of the DTFT. Only if there is no time-domain aliasing (see below) My thoughts are that if we use an odd number of samples of the DTFT in our DFT, the ...

### Gaussian filter: Plotting DTFT and DFT (by hand) from the continuous-time impulsive response

Before anything, let me just rewrite your TF from linear frequency ($f$, in Hertz) to angular frequency ($\Omega = 2\pi f$, in rad/sec). The notation $\Omega$ is usually adopted in the field of DSP to ...

### Discrete-time Fourier Transform of the unit step sequence $u[n]$

I'll provide two relatively simple proofs that do not require any knowledge of distribution theory. For a proof that computes the DTFT by a limit process using results from distribution theory, see ...
