# Questions tagged [fourier-analysis]

The representation of functions (or objects which are in some generalize the notion of function) as constant linear combinations of sines and cosines at integer multiples of a given frequency, as Fourier transforms or as Fourier integrals.

### Equating two Fourier Series with different periods

For some $\tau\in(0,1)$, let $f : (-\infty,0]\times [0,\tau] \rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ and $g:[0,\infty)\times[0,1]\rightarrow\mathbb{C}$ with $$f(0,t)=g(0,t)\text{ for }t\in [0,\tau]$$ be two smooth ...

### Construct a continuous function $f(x)$ periodic with period $2\pi$ such that the Fourier series of $f(x)$ is divergent at $x = 0$

The following question was asked on Math Stack Exchange by me 15 days ago. I used a bounty, but still no response. So I am posting the question here. Here is the link of the question here. problem ...

### Radial Fourier transform vs Hankel transform

I was wondering about the relationship between the Hankel transform and the Fourier transform for radial functions. Let $f : \mathbb{R}^d \to \mathbb{R}$ be a (sufficiently regular) radial function. ...

### Reference request: injectivity of CWT, density of dilations and translations in $L^p$

Recently, I encountered the notion of Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT), and I find it very intriguing (for a reference, see the wiki). I believe it offers a different and more general perspective on ...

### Multiplication with dilations of nonzero measurable function is injective

Denote $f_s(x):=f(sx)$ as the dilation of a function $f$. I want to know whether the following statement is true: Suppose $f$ and $g$ are measurable functions on $\mathbb{R}$, and $f$ is not almost ...

### Density of zero modes

Let $(M,g)$ be a compact smooth Riemannian manifold with a smooth boundary. Let $\{(\lambda_k,\phi_k)\}_{k\in\mathbb N}$ be the spectral data on $(M,g)$, namely an orthonormal basis for $L^2(M)$ ...

### Is there a compactly supported differentiable function whose Fourier transform is not in L1?

In my MSE answer here, I discussed the example of compactly supported continuous function $$g(x)= \begin{cases} \dfrac{\frac12 -x}{\log(x)},&0<x\leq1/2\\ 0,&\text{otherwise} \end{cases}$$ ...

### Predicting the peak "amplitude" of a damped sine wave in the frequency spectrum with FFT

In one line: Given an exponentially decaying sine wave $x(t)$, how can we predict the amplitude of the resulting peak in frequency spectrum using discrete Fourier transform. In nuclear magnetic ...
