We already know about what is DTFT. In this section, we will study some properties of DTFT to know a better understanding of this topic. We know that x (n) and X (ω) are Fourier transform pair and denoted as given below,

DTFT

If x

_{ }(n) ↔ X(ω)**1. Linearity :**

Fourier transform of a linear combination of signals then it will be the same as the linear combination of the Fourier transform of each of the individual signals.

DTFT

If x

_{1 }(n) is ↔ X_{1}(ω) and x_{2 }(n) is ↔ X_{2}(ω) then
DTFT

a

_{1}x_{1 }(n) + a_{2}x_{2 }(n) is ↔ a_{1}X_{1 }(ω) + a_{2}X_{2 }(ω)**2. Time shifting :**

Time shifting shows that a shift in time is equivalent to a linear phase shift in frequency domain. Since the frequency content depends only on the shape of a signal generated, which is basically unchanged in a time shift, then only the phase spectrum will be altered. This property is given below :

x (n) is ↔ X(ω) then

If

x (-n) is ↔ X(-ω)

**5. Differentiation :**

It is a complicated differentiation equation, it is the easiest way to understand a better way to this topic, the equation is given below. It is apparent with this property that converting to the frequency domain may allow the frequency domain may allow us to convert these complicated differential equations to easy simpler equations involving multiplication and addition. This property is given below :

If

n x (n) ↔ d/dω X(ω)

**6. Parseval's theorem :**

DTFT DTFT

If x

_{1 }(n) is ↔ X_{1}(ω) and x_{2 }(n) is ↔ X_{2}(ω) then
Parseval's relation tells us that the energy of a signal is totally equal to the energy of its Fourier transform.

_{ ∞ ∏}

∑ x ω

n = - ∞ -∏

**7. Convolution theorem :**

Convolution is one of the big reasons for converting signals to the frequency domain since convolution in time becomes multiplication in frequency domain.
