A Simple Approach to Fourier Aliasing
Foadi, James
European Journal of Physics, v28 n3 p551-561 May 2007
In the context of discrete Fourier transforms the idea of aliasing as due to approximation errors in the integral defining Fourier coefficients is introduced and explained. This has the positive pedagogical effect of getting to the heart of sampling and the discrete Fourier transform without having to delve into effective, but otherwise long and structured, introductions to the topic, commonly met in advanced, specialized books. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
