I read in various articles about Prony analysis that(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex]{\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{L}}A_{i}e^{\sigma_{i}t}cos(2\pi f_{i}t+\phi_{i})[/itex]

Using Euler theorem this equals:

[itex]{\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{L}}A_{i}e^{\sigma_{i}t}\left(\frac{e^{j2\pi f_{i}t}e^{j\phi_{i}}}{2}+\frac{e^{-j2\pi f_{i}t}e^{-j\phi_{i}}}{2}\right)[/itex]

[itex]={\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{L}}\left(\frac{A_{i}e^{(j2\pi f_{i}+\sigma_{i})t}e^{j\phi_{i}}}{2}+\frac{A_{i}e^{(-j2\pi f_{i}+\sigma_{i})t}e^{-j\phi_{i}}}{2}\right)[/itex]

is supposed to be equal to

[itex]

{\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{N}}\frac{A_{i}}{2}e^{j\phi_{i}}e^{(σ_{i}+j2\pi f_{i})t}

[/itex]
