a discrete Fourier transform uses always equidistant sampled
data on the interval [0,2Pi) and you have to use
an interpolation if the data are not equidstant and a scaling
when you are not in the interval [0,2Pi).
Since the interval is fixed, Fourier[] don't need the independent
variables at all.

| Hi folks
|           I have a list of pairs of numbers like
|  {{1.2, 3.4}, {2.2, 3.6}............}
| The first part is time and second part is 
| when I do the fourier transform by using
| Fourier[list]
| it gives me list of complex numbers but I expect 
real numbers
| (i.e . amplitude versus frequency)
| Any help appreciated.
| thanks
