According to Dr Brian Osgood, in his notes for Standford course EE 261
(The Fourier Transform and Its Applications), this method is due to
Leonard Euler. The course is available free online and I recommend it.
Dr Osgood is actually a mathematician, not an EE, and the course is
quite mathematically oriented, although it includes some very
interesting non-math applications as well (image processing,
tomography, even a proof of an interesting random-walk result using
FT). You can Google "Standford EE 261".
