Fractional Fourier transform: A novel tool for signal processing

Rajiv Saxena, Kulbir Singh

Abstract



The fractional Fourier transform (FRFT) is the generalization of the classical Fourier transform. It depends on a parameter ? (= a ?/2) and can be interpreted as a rotation by an angle ? in the time-frequency plane or decomposition of the signal in terms of chirps. This paper discusses discrete FRFT (DFRFT), time-frequency distributions related to FRFT, optimal filter and beamformer in FRFT domain, filtering using window functions and other fractional transforms along with simulation results.
