    Hilbert transform problem

    ok , my bad , here is the post again ..


    i was trying to come with an easier way of finding the Hilbert transform of a function \ x(t) , and here is what i did :

    starting with Fourier transform of x :

    X(f)=\int^{\infty}_{-\infty}\ x(t) \ e^ {\ -i2\pi ft} \ dt

    now

    \ e^ {\ -i2\pi ft} = \frac{1}{2\pi i}\oint\frac{e^ {\ -i2\pi<br />
fz}}{z-t} \ dz

    where the contour encloses t .

    "this is done by cauchy's integral formula"

    =>

    X(f) = \frac{1}{2\pi i}\int^{\infty}_{-\infty}\ x(t) \oint\frac{e^ {\ -i2\pi fz}}{z-t} \ dz \<br />
dt = \frac{1}{2\pi i} \oint\ e^ {\ -i2\pi fz}\int^{\infty}_{-\infty}\frac{x(t)}{z-t}\ dt \ dz

    now

    \pi\hat{x}(z)=\int^{\infty}_{-\infty}\frac{x(t)}{z-t}\ dt

    where

    \hat{x}(z) is the Hilbert transform of x .

    =>

    <br />
\ X(f)= \frac{1}{2i}\oint\hat{x}(s)\ e^ {\ -i2\pi fs}\ ds

    "z is replaced with s for conventional reasons"

    now the program is to relate the last integral to the inverse laplace (or fourier !!) transform of \hat{x}(s), by choosing the suitable contour(s) , and here is where i'm stuck !! so any help is appreciated .

    You are going to have to type these out on your own or find a better way to copy and paste them. There is a good intro thread to learn basic LaTeX here.

    Here's an easier way:

    1. You know that \hat{x}(z) = x(z) * \frac{1}{\pi z} where * denotes the convolution operator, right?

    2. FT\left[ \frac{1}{\pi z} \right] = - i \, \text{sgn} (f) where sgn is the signum function (see PlanetMath: signum function).

    3. From the multiplication to convolution theorem: FT\left[ \hat{x}(z) \right] = - i \, X(f) \, \text{sgn} (f).

    4. Therefore: \hat{x}(z) = -i \, FT^{-1} \left[X(f) \, \text{sgn} (f) \right].
