This is an introductory volume on a novel theory of basic Fourier series, a new interesting research area in classical analysis and q-series. This research utilizes approximation theory, orthogonal polynomials, analytic functions, and numerical methods to study the branch of q-special functions dealing with basic analogs of Fourier series and its applications. This theory has interesting applications and connections to general orthogonal basic hypergeometric functions, a q-analog of zeta function, and, possibly, quantum groups and mathematical physics.

Audience: Researchers and graduate students interested in recent developments in q-special functions and their applications.
