If X[n] is, as above, a signal that repeats every samples, the Fourier
transform of X[n] also repeats itself every units of frequency, that is,
for all real values of . This follows immediately from the definition
of the Fourier transform, since the factor
is unchanged when we add (or any multiple of ) to .
