Frequency Domain Interpretation of COLA (Constant Over-Lap Add)

The derivation of Poisson summation formula and the alternative view of COLA criterion (Nyquist) uses IDTFT, which are basically time domain equations. Therefore, I find it more like algebra than intuition. To my belief that every LTI system has a frequency domain interpretation, I spent a whole day working on it.

An observation: Poisson summation is in fact one of the tricks to derive the Fourier transform of an impulse train (which is also an impulse train). You can prove the Nyquist-COLA dual without Poisson summation if you know the impulse train Fourier pair.

【English】We (Hongkongers) have the basic level of human courtesy. Because we have few people, we are able to respect human life and human rights. Our flexibility came from our lack of racial identity. In other words, we don't have inferiority complex over our race.

Reggie: You are a miserable human being

Wow, even your compliments sucked!


Patient: I’m dying
Becker (Doctor): We’re all dying.


Becker: Why is it so hard to believe? I like having a good time. I like people.
Margret: No you don’t!
Becker: I’m trying to like people, but it’s so hard to weed through the stupid ones.


Becker: If you have a problem, just deal with it like an adult
Patient: You meant drink.


Kid: I don’t get it. You said adults were supposed to handle their problems in a mature way.
Becker: I tried it. Didn’t work


Hey, I earned the right to bitch


Doctor Becker: As a matter of fact, I treat the diseased with kindness and understanding so that they can come back to the society and lead a productive life robbing convenient stores for drug money.


Becker, M.D.(trying to discredit an acupuncturist): Oh Really? I went to Harvard

Becker: Oh, I’m positive. I’m positive that every single day the evil forces of nature out there waiting to screw me.


You got a cat that gets rid of people?! Can I borrow it?


Becker, M.D. (as patient): My test showed slightly elevated cholesterol
Roger (his doctor): You know what that means.
Becker: Yah. Filled with buttery goodness.


Reggie: Becker, will a lucky day destroy your view of life as a bleak and punishing hell?
Jake: Aaah… take you a while Reg, but you finally figured him out.


It’s always about you being right, isn’t it? No wonder your marriage is falling apart.


Becker: We already have the perfect relationship. She (the lady at the diner) cooks my food, cleans up after me, neither of us listen to a thing the other said. It’s like marriage without the heavy lift.


Becker: As soon as you get involved with a woman, it’s only a matter of time before you’re the next contestant of ‘Guess why I’m mad’


Patient: Doctor, what is it with boys? They don’t stop. They don’t fear anything. All they do is run, scream and jump. And they spit. What is that about?
Becker: Ah. It’s a guy thing.


Doctor: How many times do I gotta tell you. You kill pain with liquor and you ease stress with cigarettes. You don’t have to be a doctor to know these stuff.


That’s what’s wrong with the world. Everybody says everybody does it. So everybody does it.


Becker: What kind of scam are you people running?
Insurance adjuster:  I know, I know, it’s just terrible. Isn’t it? If ever there’s a business that needs a serious reform, it’s ours.


Becker: After you burned me on your old policy, you’re trying to sell me a new one?
Insurance adjuster: I know, I know, I just can’t help myself.


Becker: I’m going to sue you people! I have a very aggressive lawyer!
Insurance adjuster: Just one? Bwahahahahhaha!


The only problem with playing by the rules is: you end up playing with yourself.


Linda: Hey doctor! Do we ever acknowledge our patient’s birthdays?
Doctor: Only when they stop having them.


Margret: What do you think about a cruise?
Becker: Great idea. A bunch of people I don’t know doing things I can’t stand in a place I can’t escape from.


Bob: Why don’t you give me a shot?
Reggie: Give me a gun.


You gotta really cook those things (hamburgers). You’ve ever been to a packing house? It’s disgusting!
You got blood, ground up meat all over the place, crawling with disease. It’s like Vegas for bacteria


Patient: Vasectomy is the only way to make sure there weren’t any mistakes. You are my family doc, every one of us is an accident.


(In a sarcastic tone) Amazing! You actually have the ability to create your own reality and live in it.


Father: I admire you. You always say what’s on your mind. No matter what other people think. I never could do that. I’m in sales. I always have to be nice. You know how hard it is to be nice all the time?


Doctor: Have you been on any narcotics or hallucinogens?

God is a concept of man


Becker: I thought you didn’t even like God
Jake: Doesn’t mean I don’t believe in him


Religion is supposed to be about people being nice to each other.
But frankly I don’t see a lot of that.
You know what I do see is a lot of people using the good book to say that they are morally superior.
I see people building TV stations to bill grandma out of her pension checks all in the name of God.
How about all those God feared people killing other God feared people because they don’t fear God the same way.


Friends come and go. Cigarettes are always there for you


It’s a medical fact: Men said what they mean. Women set traps to see if you can guess what they mean.


If you want to know about woman, you don’t ask a woman. Think about it. You want to know about meat, you ask the cow?


Just like what it did with me. Life will smack her down soon enough.


I tried. I call the Catholics, the Jews and you’re right. They said they wouldn’t pick him (the bum) up. The Buddhist said they wouldn’t pick him up either but they said I should be okay with that.


I don’t blame you for being nervous. 12 people who were pissed that they couldn’t get off jury duty are going to decide for court for the rest of your life.


Lawyer: What’s the matter? You are ashamed to admit that you are a prostitute?
Witness: No more shame than you should be to admit that you a lawyer.


I guess I also learned something about practice in medicine: it’s not just about healing, but also about covering your ass.


(To the therapist) I don’t need work. Society needs work.


The world will never become a better place until morons like that are held up to a higher standard by candyass pushovers like you (the therapist).


(To the therapist) That’s great! You’re just as angry as I am. You just hide it behind the cardigan sweater and the saccharin smile.


Therapist: When I first met you I though you are the one with the problem. The more I thought about what you said, the more so, I think you might be the sanest person I’ve ever met.


You’re right about what you said about not letting other people all over me.


Show the judge that you are not going to be the slave of the system.


(To Becker) Come on. It’s no fun if you don’t get upset.


Well it’s official: Love’s not only blind, it’s deaf and dumb


Becker: I’m about to beat the system!
Everybody: Oh…no….god….not the system again


I got germs in my lung. I’m trying to smoke them out


Why do parents think it’s front page news every time their kid farted?


Bob: Why do you even care?
Reggie: Because I’m a nice person, I have compassion.
Bob: Yea, try selling that on eBay


Happiness is a myth. People are just brainwashing to think they’re supposed to want something more than they have


Nothing good ever comes from telling me to shut up


No expectation. No disappointment.


Let me give you some advice here: Don’t dream. Don’t hope. You are never going to make a difference. And you’re never going to get what you want.


Margret: May be what you did was the right thing.
Becker: How come I feel like crap?
Margret: That’s how you know.

You are free not to like me either as long as you do it for the right reason. And if you don’t like that you can kiss my ass.


Oh … just another casualty of organized religion
