Fourier analysis is a mathematical technique for decomposing a signal into identifiable components. It is used in the study of all types of waves. This book explains the basic mathematical theory and some of the principal applications of Fourier analysis in areas ranging from sound andvibration to optics and CAT scanning. The author provides in-depth coverage of the techniques and includes exercises that demonstrate straightforward applications of formulas as well as more complex problems.
James S. Walker is at University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire.

Editorial Reviews

"The author presents a comprehensive discussion of the theory and application of Fourier series suitable for latter year undergraduates. His presentation is rigorous and yet straightforward and readable. The discussion of applications of Fourier transforms to diffraction problems and thetheory and applications of Random transforms are particularly interesting." --Mathematica
