Fourier Cosine Transform

The Fourier cosine transform of a real function is the real part of the full complex Fourier transform,


The Fourier cosine transform F_c(k) of a function f(x) is implemented as FourierCosTransform[f, x, k], and different choices of a and b can be used by passing the optional FourierParameters -> {a, b} option. In this work, a=0 and b=-2pi.

The discrete Fourier cosine transform of a list l of real numbers can be computed in the Wolfram Language using FourierDCT[l].
