1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data What is the fourier transform of a single short pulse and of a sequence of pulses? 3. The attempt at a solution In class we haven't dealt with the mathematics of a fourier transform, however my professor has simple stated that a fourier transform is simply a equation converter. You can take equations that are a function of frequency and change them to a function of time, and vice versa. With that said, i think that the fourier transform of a single short pulse consists of an infinite amount of waves, that destructively interfere everywhere except one place. From that i want to say a series of pulses is the sum of many waves that have phase relations that there is periodic constuctive interference, but destructive interference in between. I have no clue if this is correct.
