CTFT Development 2

Module by: Richard Baraniuk. E-mail the author

This is a "voodoo" development

Fiω=fte(iωt)d t =ft,eiωt F ω t f t ω t f t ω t
in Hilbert Space L2R L 2 , which is like a generalized CTFS coefficient with "basis" eiωt ω t , given that ω ω is real.


All ei ω 1 t ω 1 t and ei ω 2 t ω 2 t are orthogonal ω 1 ω 2 ω 1 ω 2 , in other words: ei ω 1 t,ei ω 2 t=0 ω 1 t ω 2 t 0 unless ω 1 = ω 2 ω 1 ω 2 .


eiωt ω t has infinite energy eiωt,eiωt= ω t ω t .

In fact:

ei ω 1 t,ei ω 2 t=2πδ( ω 1 ω 2 ) ω 1 t ω 2 t 2 δ ω 1 ω 2 .

If we carry on undeterred then we should be able to resynthesize ft f t from

ft=ωRFiωeiωt f t ω ω R F ω ω t
where the sum becomes an integral:
ft=12πFiωeiωtd ω f t 1 2 ω F ω ω t


ft=12π(Fiω,e(iωt)) f t 1 2 F ω ω t where e(iωt) ω t is the inner product over ω ω (why we need the 12π 1 2 ). Fiω=ft,eiωt F ω f t ω t

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
