Overview

Strikingly different from typical presentations, Principles of Fourier Analysis provides an introduction to and comprehensive overview of th e mathematical theory of Fourier analysis as it is used in application s in engineering, science, and mathematics. It presents the general re sults and formulas most useful to those who use Fourier analysis in th eir work, complete with indications of the limitations of those result s and formulas. The author's uniquely accessible approach stimulates r eaders' understanding and appreciation of the fundamental concepts and helps them develop the ability to handle the more sophisticated mathe matics ultimately required by Fourier analysis.
