Notation and Terminology
If is the DFT of , we say that and form a transform pair and write
Another notation we'll use is
As we've already seen, time-domain signals are consistently denoted using lowercase symbols such as '','' while frequency-domainsignals (spectra), are denoted in uppercase ('''').
