Overview

The classical Fourier transform is one of the most widely used mathematical tools in engineering. However, few engineers know that extensions of harmonic analysis to functions on groups holds great potential for solving problems in robotics, image analysis, mechanics, and other areas. For those that may be aware of its potential value, there is still no place they can turn to for a clear presentation of the background they need to apply the concept to engineering problems.

Engineering Applications of Noncommutative Harmonic Analysis brings this powerful tool to the engineering world. Written specifically for engineers and computer scientists, it offers a practical treatment of harmonic analysis in the context of particular Lie groups (rotation and Euclidean motion). It presents only a limited number of proofs, focusing instead on providing a review of the fundamental mathematical results unknown to most engineers and detailed discussions of specific applications.

Advances in pure mathematics can lead to very tangible advances in engineering, but only if they are available and accessible to engineers. Engineering Applications of Noncommutative Harmonic Analysis provides the means for adding this valuable and effective technique to the engineer's toolbox.

The classical Fourier transform is one of the most widely used mathematical tools in engineering. However, few engineers realize that the extension of harmonic analysis to functions on groups holds great potential for solving problems in robotics, image analysis, mechanics, and other areas. This book, written specifically for engineers and computer scientists, offers a practical treatment of harmonic analysis in the context of particular Lie groups, presenting few proofs, focusing instead on reviewing the fundamental mathematical results unknown to most engineers, and detailed discussions of specific applications. Contents include discussions of applications in robotics, mechanics, tomography, sensor calibration, estimation and control, liquid crystal analysis and conformational statistics of macromolecules.
