Fig. Fundamental tool of signal processing is FFT (or fast Finite Fourier Transform). Here is an example using FFT applied to sunspot periodicity showing the Fourier coefficients in the complex plane for the sunspot activity over the last 300 years.

Fig. Wave functions whose sum is shown at bottom.
Reminder: An arbitrary periodic function (even discontinuous) can be represented by a sum of sinusoids of different frequencies, each one is endowed with a coefficient. The set of these coefficients allows to reconstitute the initial function or series. This is the Fourier series principle. It allows to transform a time series or function into a series of independent (differential) equations. Each one of these equations shows the chronological evolution of the coefficients of one of the sinusoids which will compose the initial series. Fourier series can be written for example without cosine: f(x)=c1.sinφ1(x)+c2.sinφ2(x)+c3.sinφ3(x)+... ; e.g. f(x)=sin(x)+(1/a)sin(a.x)+(1/b)sin(b.x)+... , the coefficients are here (1,1/a,1/b,...). Illustration is given in the above picture where f(x)=(-0.4sin(5x))+(0.3sin (3x))+(sin (x))+(sin(x/2)); this series is written as the sum of sinusoidal functions. At a given frequency, Fourier coefficient measure is done by computing the integral of function or series.
