Shift Theorem for the DTFT

We define the *shift operator* for sampled signals
by

where is any integer ( ). Thus, is a

The *shift theorem* states^{3.5}

(3.19) |

or, in operator notation,

(3.20) |

*Proof: *

Note that
is a *linear phase term*, so called
because it is a linear function of frequency with slope equal to
:

The shift theorem gives us that multiplying a spectrum by a linear phase term corresponds to a
