Editorial Reviews

Review

From previous editions: 'It is the wide range of topics that makes this book so appealing ... I highly recommend this book for the advanced student ... Even the expert who wants a deeper appreciation of the Fourier transform will find the book useful.' Computers in Physics

'... this is an excellent book to initiate students who possess a reasonable mathematical background to the use of Fourier transforms ...' Microscopy and Analysis

Book Description

A concise introduction to Fourier transforms, this updated edition includes new and interesting material, such as convolution with a sinusoid, coherence, the Michelson stellar interferometer and the van Cittert-Zernike theorem, Babinet's principle and dipole arrays. It is invaluable to students of physics, electrical and electronic engineering, and computer science.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Luis Isaac Ramos Garcia on September 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
This is a very brief but clear and easy to read to the Fourier transform.
The book exposed some physics application tor the transform (Fraunhoffer diffraction, filters, interferometry, ...). The introducion to the Radon transform and to the Central Slice theorem is very light but is a very nice example of the n-dimensional Fourier transform.

I recomed this book althougth as a student guide book (as the title says) there is a lack of end chapter exercises (with detailed solutions) that complement the theory.
In my opinión the book also benefit if would include some computer aplication in a higth level language like Matlab.

Format: Paperback
The book is just a summary of the mathematics behind Fourier Analysis and Synthesis. Nothing too new here. Not what you are looking for if you want some help with software/computer applications. It's about 130 pages but you would be better off with a more extensive and thorough text. This is Fourier Lite.

Good theory and apllications. Maybe it could have more exercises in popular math software
lihe Mathlab, mathematica or Maple.

Interesting for people from health sciences studying mathematics, like Biomedical Engineer.

I think it is graduate level.
