Function transformations, which include linear integral transformations, are some of the most important mathematical tools for solving problems in all areas of engineering and the physical sciences. They allow one to quickly solve a problem by breaking it down into a series of smaller, more manageable problems.
The author has compiled the most important and widely used of these function transforms in applied mathematics and electrical engineering. In addition to classical transforms, newer transforms such as wavelets, Zak, and Radon are included.
The book is neither a table of transforms nor a textbook, but it is a source book that provides quick and easy access to the most important properties and formulas of function and generalized function transformations. It is organized for convenient reference, with chapters broken down into the following'sections:

Editorial Reviews

A source book and reference of the most important and most widely used function transformations in applied mathematics and electrical engineering, covering newer transforms including wavelets, Zak, and Radon as well as classical transforms. Chapters on specific transforms discuss each one's history, domain of existence, elementary properties, convolution structure, relationship with other transforms, extension to generalized functions, and key applications, using short, illustrative proofs and nontechnical language geared to students and nonspecialists in mathematics, science, and engineering.
