The question as I understand it is so simple that I believe I may not really understand it. Assuming that I do, the answer is "Of Course." To show that, operate on the samples with any non-linear function. Jerry -- It matters little to a goat whether it be dedicated to God or consigned to Azazel.

That is one of the most beautiful heuristics of human communication, stated in a very good sentence.

You ask the wrong question: The problem is not how to generate nonlinear effects - just about any operation will do that. The problem is how *not* to generate them; only linear operators or operations don't. > Which particular nonlinear > functions would specifically produce second, third or fifth > order harmonic distortion? That's a completely different question. You will have to investigate a candidate function to find out how it behaves. Rune

A simple minded brute force method that *think MAY* meet your criteria _MIGHT_ be: 1. perform DFT 2. for each harmonic "q", multiply the value in bin n by r(q,n), and add it to the value in bin q*n. 3. perform IDFT (and NO, I don't know how to VALIDLY handle the fact that you have now increased the number of bins by the highest harmonic created ;/) { above presumes that DFT/IDFT are in terms of +/- frequency rather than frequency/phase} That would seem to meet your *SPECIFICATION* . *_HOWEVER_* I've a gut feeling it may not meet your need. How would you phrase your need if you were operating purely in the analog domain? HTH |
