The Discrete Fourier Transform in Layman's Terms

| Comments

There’s a nice explaination of the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in an decently easy to understand for the uninitiated published by the MIT News Office. It may not be paticularly exciting, but if anyone wants a conceptual understanding of some of the mathematic plumbing behind signal processing (a big part of what I’m studying), its a decent read.

Also a Wikipedia article on the subject, with some equations for those desiring a headache.
