The Fourier Series

In this chapter, arbitrary signals are expressed as linear combinations of component signals. Suitable sets of component signals are identified, and the one-sided cosine-frequency approach is extended to represent arbitrary periodic signals as the sum of orthogonal components. This discussion finally leads to the complex Fourier series as a generalized frequency-domain representation of periodic functions.

Chapter Overview

This chapter is divided into three parts. Part One introduces the notion of orthogonal signals and explores the process of identifying the orthogonal components of a signal. There are many possible sets of orthogonal component signals, but in Part Two the use ...
