### Top and bottom power spectral density of a height profile

Imagine I have a simple 1D height profile which is NOT symmetric. Now, what is truly important for me is to know what are the frequency content of the top profile (i.e. a cut profile above the ...

### Relative error when computing derivatives via FFT

I want to compute a discrete derivative via the FFT. This amounts to multiplication by the wave number in Fourier space, as detailed in the stack exchange answer here. When I increase the ...

### Get a set of points from Fourier plot on Matlab?

I have a program that collects raw data and also does a Fourier transform to get complex numbers. When I feed the raw data into Matlab to do its own FFT, I can get a nice plot of power on frequency. ...

### Help with Hermitian Symmetry and its inverse Fourier transform in MATLAB.

I have tried to impose Hermitian symmetry on the complex number $z$ which is varies with $x$. I need to take its inverse Fourier transform. A hermitian symmetry should give a real valued inverse FT. ...
