I am using ifftshift function in matlab, mathematically it does the following functions(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If M is a row matrix:

M = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8;

then ifftshift(M) = 5 6 7 8 1 2 3 4, i.e. it replaces first half with the second half. Although how can be explain this function physically?
