Exploring Time and Frequency Domains with Matlab

Abstract

Physical processes often evolve periodically over time, making frequency-domain analysis a powerful engineering tool for characterizing and designing a system’s behavior. This chapter introduces the basic concepts of the time domain, the frequency domain, and transformations between the two in the context of our continuing study of Matlab. Subsequent engineering courses study the subject in great depth, so our goal is to use Matlab to develop a foundational understanding.
