Fourier Series/ transform demonstration

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    Hey guys!

    if anyone can help me I guess it is you! :)

    I'm trying to find the fourier Series demonstration to continuous and periodic functions.

    I don't understand why people keep using X(jw) and X[e^jw] and even sometimes X(w) and X(f)

    If anyone can help me i'm really not understanding that!

    Best regards

    I'm trying to understand why in my Signals and Systems they use X(jw) (and X[e^jw] in disrete signals) and in my telecomunications class they use X(f) and what does it change, and why can they change that. I have no problem going into deep mathematics if that means understanding it. I feel like only after understanding this Fourier series/transform Laplace and Z transform will make sense in my head and I'll be able to sleep at night if I get this right into my head. ^^

    Thanks again.
