This text is designed for use in a senior undergraduate or graduate level course in Fourier Transforms. This text differs from many other Fourier transform books in its emphasis on applications. Bracewell applies mathematical concepts to the physical world throughout this text, equipping students to think about the world and physics in terms of transforms. The pedagogy in this classic text is excellent. The author has included such tools as the pictorial dictionary of transforms and bibliographic references. In addition, there are many excellent problems throughout this book, which are more than mathematical exercises, often requiring students to think in terms of specific situations or asking for educated opinions. To aid students further, discussions of many of the problems can be found at the end of the book.

Just as a prism separates white light into its component bands of colored light, so the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is used to separate a signal into its constituent frequencies. Just as a pair of sunglasses reduces the glare of white light, permitting only the softer green light to pass, so the DFT may be used to modify a signal to achieve a desired effect. In fact, by analyzing the component frequencies of a signal or any system, the DFT can be used in an astonishing variety of problems. Among the applications of the DFT are digital signal processing, oil and gas exploration, medical imaging, aircraft and spacecraft guidance, and the solution of differential equations of physics and engineering. The DFT: An Owner's Manual for the Discrete Fourier Transform explores both the practical and theoretical aspects of the DFT, one of the most widely used tools in science and engineering.

The Fourier transform is one of the most important mathematical tools in a wide variety of science and engineering fields. Its application - as Fourier analysis or harmonic analysis - provides useful decompositions of signals into fundamental ('primitive') components, giving shortcuts in the computation of complicated sums and integrals, and often revealing hidden structure in the data. "Fourier Transforms: An Introduction for Engineers" develops the basic definitions, properties and applications of Fourier analysis, the emphasis being on techniques for its application to linear systems, although other applications are also considered. The book will serve as both a reference text and a teaching text for a one-quarter or one-semester course covering the application of Fourier analysis to a wide variety of signals, including discrete time (or parameter), continuous time (or parameter), finite duration, and infinite duration.It highlights the common aspects in all cases considered, thereby building an intuition from simple examples that will be useful in the more complicated examples where careful proofs are not included. "Fourier Analysis: An Introduction for Engineers" is written by two scholars who are recognized throughout the world as leaders in this area, and provides a fresh look at one of the most important mathematical and directly applicable concepts in nearly all fields of science and engineering. This book is suitable for engineers, especially electrical engineers. The careful treatment of the fundamental mathematical ideas makes the book suitable in all areas where Fourier analysis finds applications.
