### Is signam function even or odd and why?

I have no idea about the signam function.The signum function is odd because sgn(-x) = -sgn(x).

### Fourier transform of unit step function?

we proceed via the FT of the signum function sgn(t) which is defined as: sgn(t) = 1 for t&gt;0 n -1 for t&lt;0 FT of sgn(t) = 2/jw where w is omega n j is iota(complex) we actually write unit step function in terms of signum fucntion : n the formula to convert unit step in to signum function is u(t) = 1/2 ( 1 + sgn(t) ) As we know the FT of sgn(t) we can easily compute FT of u(t).
