by the substitution . The locus of is the unit circle . As angular frequency increases from through to , the point goes around the unit circle (in a clockwise direction) from *Z* = +1 through *Z* = +*i* to *Z* = -1. The Fourier transform represents the value of the *Z*-transform on the unit circle (Figure 1).
