I had posted a thread on another forum about building a 100GHz oscilloscope which resulted in the signal being chopped up by a bank of comparators and subsequently being fed into a video buffer for processing using currently developed parallel processing techniques. The subject of compression came up and it was suggested to use Fourier Transforms. I disagreed as I thought under the dynamic nature of the waves being represented essentially Fourier Transforms would in the end be bulky and the compression would essentially take too long. I figured it would be best to represent segments of the waves as differential equations where the differential would be acquired through curve fitting. I guess I'm arguing Laplace vs. Fourier with me siding on Laplace? Just curious as to what more knowledgeable individuals might have to say about this? Am I even making sense? I'm kind of nub ...
