## Convolution Theorem

The*convolution theorem*for Fourier transforms states that

*convolution in the time domain equals multiplication in the frequency domain*. The continuous-time

*convolution*of two signals and is defined by

The Fourier transform is then

Exercise:Show that

(B.17) |

when frequency-domain convolution is defined by

(B.18) |

where is in radians per second, and that

(B.19) |

when frequency-domain convolution is defined by

(B.20) |

with in Hertz.
