Re: Fourier transform


Hi Andrea,

Fourier[] implements a numerical fast fourier transform. That means that
the data passed to Fourier[] are  the function values f(t) on the
interval t in [0,2Pi) with constant increment. The data are assumed to
be periodic in t with period 2Pi.

Assume You have a solution ndsol={y[t]->InterpolatingFunction[<>][t]}
With
fun=y[t] /. ndsol;
pointNo=256;
inc=N[2Pi]/(pointNo-1);
data=Table[fun,{t,0.,2.*Pi,inc}];

You get Your data set and can use

fftdata=Fourier[data]

to make the transformation.
For other time intervals You need a proper scaleing of the t-variable.

Hope that helps
  Jens
