Book Description

May 9, 2011 0521176832 978-0521176835 3
Fourier transform theory is of central importance in a vast range of applications in physical science, engineering and applied mathematics. Providing a concise introduction to the theory and practice of Fourier transforms, this book is invaluable to students of physics, electrical and electronic engineering, and computer science. After a brief description of the basic ideas and theorems, the power of the technique is illustrated through applications in optics, spectroscopy, electronics and telecommunications. The rarely discussed but important field of multi-dimensional Fourier theory is covered, including a description of Computer Axial Tomography (CAT scanning). The book concludes by discussing digital methods, with particular attention to the Fast Fourier Transform and its implementation. This new edition has been revised to include 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brief and nice 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'll pass on this. February 21, 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book December 29, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
