The Fourier transform of the convolution of two functions is equal to the product of their individual transforms (or multiplying their amplitude spectra and summing their phase spectra). See Figures F-20 and F-22.

Integral definition

The process of convolution of two functions and is defined in one dimension, as


Fourier domain equivalent

Replacing and by their Fourier domain representations

and

where and are the Fourier transforms of and respectively.

Substituting these representations into the original integral representation of convolution yields

We may rearrange the order of integrations

Recognizing the factor in as the frequency domain representation of the Dirac delta function,


permits us to write the equivalent expression

The integral may be performed, exploiting the sifting property of the delta function to convert the to yields the equivalence of multiplication in the frequency domain to convolution in the time domain


Convolution in the Frequency domain

Similarly, multiplication in the time domain may be interpreted as convolution in the frequency domain.
