## DFT Definition

The*Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT)*of a signal may be defined by

*period*. For a tutorial on sampling continuous-time signals to obtain non-aliased discrete-time signals, see Appendix D. When all signal samples are real, we say . If they may be complex, we write . Finally, means is any integer.
