The convolution theorem (together with related theorems) is one of the most important results of Fourier theory which is that **the convolution of two functions in real space is the same as the product of their respective Fourier transforms in Fourier space**, i.e. f ( r ) ⊗ ⊗ g ( r ) ⇔ F ( k ) G ( k ) .

In image processing, convolution is **the process of transforming an image by applying a kernel over each pixel and its local neighbors across the entire image**. The kernel is a matrix of values whose size and values determine the transformation effect of the convolution process.

**The order of the operands (functions) is exchangeable**. Convolution operations can be combined in arbitrary ways (the order in which the operations are performed does not matter). The distributive law corresponds to the distributive law of the arithmetic multiplication.

Convolution is **a mathematical way of combining two signals to form a third signal**. It is the single most important technique in Digital Signal Processing. Using the strategy of impulse decomposition, systems are described by a signal called the impulse response.

Explanation: The tools used in a graphical method of finding convolution of discrete time signals are basically **plotting, shifting, folding, multiplication and addition**. These are taken in the order in the graphs. Both the signals are plotted, one of them is shifted, folded and both are again multiplied and added.

Another important thing to note is the fact that convolution is commutative, that is, **it does not matter which function is taken first**.

A convolution layer **transforms the input image in order to extract features from it**. In this transformation, the image is convolved with a kernel (or filter). A kernel is a small matrix, with its height and width smaller than the image to be convolved. It is also known as a convolution matrix or convolution mask.

The main convolution theorem states that **the response of a system at rest (zero initial conditions) due to any input** is the convolution of that input and the system impulse response.

**Linear convolution has three important properties:**

- Commutative property.
- Associative property.
- Distributive property.

How are the convolution integral of signals represented? Explanation: We obtain the system output y(t) to an arbitrary input x(t) in terms of the input response h(t). **y(t)= ∫x(α)h(t-α)dα=x(t)*h(t)**.

The linear convolution result of two arbitrary M × N and P × Q image functions will generally be **(M + P − 1) × (N + Q − 1)**, hence we would like the DFT G ˆ ˜ to have these dimensions. Therefore, the M × N function f and the P × Q function h must both be zero-padded to size (M + P − 1) × (N + Q − 1).

Conclusion: **Lamination** is not a process involved in convolution.

These two applications are: **Characterizing a linear time-invariant (LTI) system in terms of its transfer function**. Determining the output of an LTI system when its input is known.

The convolution operation is given by **the integral over the product of two functions, where one function is flipped and shifted in time**. The convolution operation smoothes the input signals, i.e. the output of the convolution is a more smooth function that its input functions.

**Steps for convolution**

- Take signal x

1 requires **N arithmetic operations per output value and N ^{2} operations for N outputs**. That can be significantly reduced with any of several fast algorithms. Digital signal processing and other applications typically use fast convolution algorithms to reduce the cost of the convolution to O(N log N) complexity.

**Use MATLAB** to find the linear convolution. Plot x, y, and the linear convolution z = ( x ∗ y ) .
