Physical motivation, definition, properties and application of Fourier Transform, Discrete FT, Fast FT, 1-dim and higher dimensional FT, Inverse FT, convolution and deconvolution, theory of distributions (generalized functions), especially Dirac Delta Distribution and Singular Value Decomposition are presented with application in (audio and image) signal processing and in infra-red spectroscopy.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Pokorný Pavel RNDr. Ph.D. (23.02.2018)

The student will be able to use Fourier Transform for signal processing and for equation solving, to find the correct sampling frequency and

the correct measurement time according to the maximal input frequency and the correct detection of close peaks, to use convolution

and deconvolution, to use Singular Value Decomposition.
