Fourier Analysis

Course code MATH3205Units 10Level 3000Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Mathematical and Physical Sciences

Introduces the basics of Fourier analysis as a prelude to applications. The course develops Fourier analysis from a general pure mathematical perspective starting with Lebesgue integration and elements of the theory of Hilbert spaces, leading to Fourier series, Fourier integrals and the fast Fourier transform, and then to applications such as partial differential equations and sampling. These subjects are of great importance to the electrical engineering and physics communities. The course concludes with more modern topics such as Gabor and wavelet transforms.
