Chapter 6, Detecting Periodicities, is about spectral analysis, the procedures used to represent data as a superposition of harmonically varying components and to detect periodicities. The key concept is the Fourier series, a type of linear model in which the data are represented by a mixture of sinusoidally varying components. The chapter aims ...
