Motivation[edit]

I want to help other learn topics that I struggled with as an undergrad/graduate and in life. Time domain based physics and in particular transient analyses, are my strongest contributions. I find it insufficient to learn about time based phenomena without the use of actual time based solutions.

If you have a query, leave a message on my talk page.

Fourier transform of a time shifted signal
Animation showing the Fourier Transform of a time shifted signal. [Top] the original signal (orange), is continuously time shifted (blue). [Bottom] The resultant Fourier Transform. Note how the higher frequency components revolve in complex plane faster than the lower frequency components Fourier Transform.
