Intuitive Guide to Fourier Analysis by Charan Langton and Victor Levin

I am working on a book with the imaginative and creative title of “Intuitive Guide to Fourier Analysis”. This is an old topic, but forever confounding in all its myriad forms. The book will have some of my DFT, FFT

DTFT, DFT Tutorial added

I have added Chapter 5 which covers DFT and DTFT and a little bit about FFT.  The tutorial has most of the Matlab code used to generate the graphs. In the links page, I have also added the sites I

New look

In coming to this new format, I had to leave behind the board which has over 2000 members. There were quite a lot of people on it and I am sorry that it will not be accessible any more. However,

Video that explains the complex exponential

While writing the second part of the Fourier tutorial, I came across this video which does a great job of explaining the complex exponential, its relationship to sinusoids and hence to the reason why signal processing math is done with

Thanks to The Mathworks

The Mathworks company has just provided me a complementary copy of Matlab out of their “Author” program. So I want to take this space to thank them. For may of the demonstrations in my tutorials on complextoreal.com and where I
