Problem Set 1 1. What is the Fourier transform of a function that is (a) Real and even? (b) Real and odd? (c) Imaginary and even? (d) Imaginary and odd? 2. For k > 0, ﬁnd the Fourier transform of g(t) = 3. Let g(t) = e−a|t| sgn(t), a > 0. (a) Find G(f ), the Fourier transform of g(t). (b) What happens to G(f ) as a → 0? (c) Can you now evaluate the Fourier transform of the step function u(t)? 4. Let Jn (x) be the Fourier coeﬃcients of the function f (θ) = cos(x sin θ). Show that sinc(x) ∗ J0 (πx) = J0 (πx). 5. Let x(t) be a periodic square wave with amplitude A and period T . Find the power in x(t). What happens when T → ∞? 6. Given a causal signal h(t), show that Im{H(f )} is the Hilbert transform of Re{H(f )}. What is the Hilbert transform of Im{H(f )}? 7. The signal x(t) = sinc2 40t is to be transmitted using AM with µ < 1. (a) Find the Fourier transform of x(t). (b) Sketch the spectrum of xc (t). (c) What is the bandwidth of the transmitted signal? 8. The signal x(t) = 4 sin π t is transmitted using DSB. Is there any limitation on the range of carrier 2 frequencies that can be used? Explain. 9. The signal x(t) = cos 2π40t + 0.5 cos 2π90t is transmitted using DSB. Sketch the positive-frequency ‘line’ (what is this?) spectrum.
