can be represented by the summation of individual
, the so called
. With a set of given single frequencies a new time signal can be generated.
On the other hand by
a time signal with respect to its frequency components, the
of the time signal can be revealed. This process is known under the term
and widely used in engineering and science.
on this pages exemplifies the Fourier Transformation and its characteristic parameters. The Graphs show; the resulting or starting time signal (top), the single frequency terms (bottom-left) and the spectral representation of the frequency components (bottom-right). The blue lines in the spectrum indicate the individual frequencies (
