7. What is the DFT of the four point sequence x(n)={0,1,2,3}?
a) {6,-2+2j-2,-2-2j}
b) {6,-2-2j,2,-2+2j}
c) {6,-2+2j,-2,-2-2j}
d) {6,-2-2j,-2,-2+2j}
Explanation: The first step is to determine the matrix W4. By exploiting the periodicity property of W4 and the symmetry property
Wk+N/2N=−WNk
The matrix W4 may be expressed as
W4=⎡⎣⎢⎢⎢⎢W04W04W04W44W04W04W24W64W04W24W04W64W14W34W34W94⎤⎦⎥⎥⎥⎥=⎡⎣⎢⎢⎢⎢W04W04W04W04W04W04W24W24W04W24W04W24W14W34W34W14⎤⎦⎥⎥⎥⎥
=⎡⎣⎢⎢⎢11111−j−1j1−11−11j−1−j⎤⎦⎥⎥⎥
