The FFT of the column vector
>> Y = fft(y)
The first value of Y is the sum of the elements of y , and is the amplitude
of the “zero-frequency”, or constant, component of the Fourier series.
Terms 2 to 4 are the (complex) amplitudes of the positive frequency
Fourier components. Term 5 is the amplitude of the component at the
Nyquist frequency, which is half the sampling frequency. The last three
terms are the negative frequency components, which, for real signals, are
complex conjugates of the positive frequency components.
The fftshift function rearranges a Fourier transform so that the
negative and positive frequencies lie either side of the zero frequency.
Companion M-Files Feature 4 The function fftfreq gives
you a two-sided frequency vector for use with fft and fftshift .
For example, the frequency vector corresponding to an 8-point
FFT assuming a Nyquist frequency of 0.5 is
