### Do you need to zeropad an image of 1920*1080 to 2048*2048 when using the Cooley-Tukey FFT?

User @Paul_R wrote that you need to zeropad an image of 1920*1080 = 2^20,984 to 2048*2048 = 2^22 when using the Cooley-Tukey FFT? Why don't we just zeropad it to 2^21=2048*1024?

### How to define the Fourier transform on arbitrary Hilbert spaces?

The Fourier transform is a unitary operator from $L^2$ to $L^2$. But all infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces are isometrically isomorphic to $L^2$. So that means we can define the Fourier transform ...

### Fourier series and floor function

It is easy to see that the the floor function on $[0,1]$ has Fourier expansion: $$[x] = x - {1 \over 2} + {1 \over \pi }\sum\limits_{n > 0} {{{\sin (2\pi x)} \over n}}$$. Let $a$ be a positive ...

### Is the fourier transform of a function in two different variables, the same?

Is the Fourier transform of $f(x)$ the exact same as the Fourier transform of $f(t)$ when $t$ is related to $x$? For example if $t = x + 5$, would their Fourier transforms be the exact same? Isn't ...

### If the function is neither even nor odd ,is its fourier series coefficient a complex? or is this wrong? [closed]

i thought if the fourier series coefficient of $f$ is neither even nor odd,$f$ must be the complex. we can know the function,$f$, is real or imaginary or complex from its FS coefficients. Now i don'...
