B"H

Hello guys, i just joined SETI and I feel pretty thrilled to be a part of this group. I was wondering if any one knew what "Searching for gaussians" meant? what does computing for "fast fourier transform" meant? what is "doppler drift rate"? "pulses" "triplets"? is there a place on this website where I could look up all these words?

Thank you
