FM Spectra
Using the expansion in Eq. (7), it is now easy to determine
the spectrum of sinusoidal FM. Eliminating scaling and
phase offsets for simplicity
in Eq. (5) yields

(8) 
where we have changed the modulator amplitude to the more
traditional symbol , called the FM index in FM sound
synthesis contexts. Using phasor analysis,
where we used the fact that
is real when is real.
We can now see clearly that the sinusoidal FM spectrum consists of an
infinite number of sidebands about the carrier frequency
(when
). The side bands occur at multiples of the
modulating frequency away from the carrier frequency
