Fourier analysis is one of the most useful and widely employed sets of tools for the engineer, the scientist, and the applied mathematician. As such, students and practitioners in these disciplines need a practical and mathematically solid introduction to its principles. They need straightforward verifications of its results and formulas, and they need clear indications of the limitations of those results and formulas. Principles of Fourier Analysis furnishes all this and more. It provides a comprehensive overview of the mathematical theory of Fourier analysis, including the development of Fourier series, "classical" Fourier transforms, generalized Fourier transforms and analysis, and the discrete theory. Much of the author's development is strikingly different from typical presentations. His approach to defining the classical Fourier transform results in a much cleaner, more coherent theory that leads naturally to a starting point for the generalized theory. He also introduces a new generalized theory based on the use of Gaussian test functions that yields an even more general -yet simpler -theory than usually presented. Principles of Fourier Analysis stimulates the appreciation and understanding of the fundamental concepts and serves both beginning students who have seen little or no Fourier analysis as well as the more advanced students who need a deeper understanding. Insightful, non-rigorous derivations motivate much of the material, and thought-provoking examples illustrate what can go wrong when formulas are misused. With clear, engaging exposition, readers develop the ability to intelligently handle the more sophisticated mathematics that Fourier analysis ultimately requires.

Affordable softcover second edition of bestselling title (over 1000 copies sold of previous edition) A primer in harmonic analysis on the undergraduate level Gives a lean and streamlined introduction to the central concepts of this beautiful and utile theory. Entirely based on the Riemann integral and metric spaces instead of the more demanding Lebesgue integral and abstract topology. Almost all proofs are given in full and all central concepts are presented clearly. Provides an introduction to Fourier analysis, leading up to the Poisson Summation Formula. Make the reader aware of the fact that both principal incarnations of Fourier theory, the Fourier series and the Fourier transform, are special cases of a more general theory arising in the context of locally compact abelian groups. Introduces the reader to the techniques used in harmonic analysis of noncommutative groups. These techniques are explained in the context of matrix groups as a principal example.

Der vorliegende dritte Band beschlieBt unsere EinfUhrung in die Analysis, mit der wir ein Fundament fUr den weiteren Aufbau des Mathematikstudiums gelegt haben. Wie schon in den ersten beiden Teilen haben wir auch hier wesentlich mehr Stoff behandelt, als dies in einem Kurs geschehen kann. Bei der Vorbereitung von Vorlesungen ist deshalb eine geeignete Stoffauswahl zu treffen, auch wenn die Lehrveranstaltungen durch Seminare erganzt und vertieft werden. Anhand der ausfiihrlichen Inhaltsangabe und der Einleitungen zu den einzelnen Kapiteln kann ein rascher Uberblick Uber den dargebotenen Stoff gewonnen werden. Das Buch ist insbesondere auch als BegleitlektUre zu Vorlesungen und fUr das Selbststudium geeignet. Die zahlreichen Ausblicke auf weiterfUhrende Theorien sollen Neugierde wecken und dazu animieren, im Verlaufe des weiteren Studiums tiefer einzudringen und mehr von der Schonheit und GroBe des mathematischen Gebaudes zu erfahren. Beim Verfassen dieses Bandes konnten wir wieder auf die unschatzbare Hil fe von Freunden, Kollegen, Mitarbeitern und Studenten ziihlen. Ganz besonders danken wir Georg Prokert, Pavol Quittner, Olivier Steiger und Christoph Wal ker, die den gesamten Text kritisch durchgearbeitet und uns so geholfen haben, Fehler zu eliminieren und substantielle Verbesserungen anzubringen. Unser Dank gilt auch Carlheinz Kneisel und Bea Wollenmann, die ebenfalls groBere Teile des Manuskripts gelesen und uns auf Ungereimtheiten hingewiesen haben.

Wavelets is a carefully organized and edited collection of extended survey papers addressing key topics in the mathematical foundations and applications of wavelet theory. The first part of the book is devoted to the fundamentals of wavelet analysis. The construction of wavelet bases and the fast computation of the wavelet transform in both continuous and discrete settings is covered. The theory of frames, dilation equations, and local Fourier bases are also presented. The second part of the book discusses applications in signal analysis, while the third part covers operator analysis and partial differential equations. Each chapter in these sections provides an up-to-date introduction to such topics as sampling theory, probability and statistics, compression, numerical analysis, turbulence, operator theory, and harmonic analysis. The book is ideal for a general scientific and engineering audience, yet it is mathematically precise. It will be an especially useful reference for harmonic analysts, partial differential equation researchers, signal processing engineers, numerical analysts, fluids researchers, and applied mathematicians.

Before applying multigrid methods to a project, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers need to answer questions related to the quality of convergence, whether a development will pay out, whether multigrid will work for a particular application, and what the numerical properties are. Practical Fourier Analysis for Multigrid Methods uses a detailed and systematic description of local Fourier k-grid (k=1,2,3) analysis for general systems of partial differential equations to provide a framework that answers these questions. This volume contains software that confirms written statements about convergence and efficiency of algorithms and is easily adapted to new applications. Providing theoretical background and the linkage between theory and practice, the text and software quickly combine learning by reading and learning by doing. The book enables understanding of basic principles of multigrid and local Fourier analysis, and also describes the theory important to those who need to delve deeper into the details of the subject. The first chapter delivers an explanation of concepts, including Fourier components and multigrid principles. Chapter 2 highlights the basic elements of local Fourier analysis and the limits to this approach. Chapter 3 examines multigrid methods and components, supported by a user-friendly GUI. Chapter 4 provides case studies for two- and three-dimensional problems. Chapters 5 and 6 detail the mathematics embedded within the software system. Chapter 7 presents recent developments and further applications of local Fourier analysis for multigrid methods.

This book is a textbook for graduate or advanced undergraduate students in mathematics and (or) mathematical physics. It is not primarily aimed, therefore, at specialists (or those who wish to become specialists) in integra tion theory, Fourier theory and harmonic analysis, although even for these there might be some points of interest in the book (such as for example the simple remarks in Section 15). At many universities the students do not yet get acquainted with Lebesgue integration in their first and second year (or sometimes only with the first principles of integration on the real line ). The Lebesgue integral, however, is indispensable for obtaining a familiarity with Fourier series and Fourier transforms on a higher level; more so than by us ing only the Riemann integral. Therefore, we have included a discussion of integration theory - brief but with complete proofs - for Lebesgue measure in Euclidean space as well as for abstract measures. We give some emphasis to subjects of which an understanding is necessary for the Fourier theory in the later chapters. In view of the emphasis in modern mathematics curric ula on abstract subjects (algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, algebraic number theory) on the one hand and computer science on the other, it may be useful to have a textbook available (not too elementary and not too spe cialized) on the subjects - classical but still important to-day - which are mentioned in the title of this book.
