The derivation is similar to that for the Fourier cosine series given above. Note that this form is quite a bit more compact than that of the trigonometric series; that is one of its primary appeals. Other advantages include: a single analysis equation (versus three equations for the trigonometric form), notation is similar to that of the Fourier Transform (to be ), it is often easier to mathematically manipulate exponentials rather sines and cosines. A principle advantage of the trigonometric form is that it is easier to visualize sines and cosines (in part because the *c _{n}* are complex number,, and the series can be easily used if the original

*x*is either purely even or odd.

A more compact representation of the Fourier Series uses complex exponentials. In this case we end up with the following synthesis and analysis equations:

N2 - Two distinct methods for synthesizing a signal from its short-time Fourier transform have previously been proposed. We call these methods the filter-bank summation (FBS) method and the overlap add (OLA) method. Each of these synthesis techniques has unique advantages and disadvantages in various applications due to the way in which the signal is reconstructed. In this paper we unify the ideas behind the two synthesis techniques and discuss the similarities and differences between these methods. In particular, we explicitly show the effects of modifications made to the short-time transform (both fixed and time-varying modifications are considered) on the resulting signal and discuss applications where each of the techniques would be most useful. The interesting case of nonlinear modifications (possibly signal dependent) to the short-time Fourier transform is also discussed. Finally it is shown that a formal duality exists between the two synthesis methods based on the properties of the window used for obtaining the short-time Fourier transform.

Fourier analysis tells us that any complex signal consists of fundamental and a set of even and odd harmonics.
