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.

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
I've used this book since the first edition. As an acoustician, I use this as an introduction and a source of training assignments for new student researchers. It predates the other Student Guide books and wasn't written with the same intent. This book is in the long tradition of 100 page focussed introductions to mathematical subjects that used to be published by university presses. So don't criticize it for what it's not - it's not an introduction to supplement a course, instead accept it for what it is, it is a great introduction to Fourier transforms. If you want to learn about code, look elsewhere, if you want to gain insight and get a feel for what Fourier Transforms are about, start here. Once you've absorbed this you can go to Bracewell or Brigham to learn how to implement the methods.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those strange books that have no target reader: if you're planning to learn with its help, you won't: it is only a survey that doesn't explain anything and does not go into any degree of depth in its treatement of the topic. Iow, if you're a learner, you will understand nothing. In order to make sense of this book you need to already know the subject -- but then, why would you need this book?

Useless in the most literal, fundamental sense. Should have gone out of print long ago, out of sight and out of mind.
