About this Textbook

Meant to serve an "entertaining textbook," this book belongs to a rare genre. It is written for all students and practitioners who deal with Fourier transformation. Fourier series as well as continuous and discrete Fourier transformation are covered, and particular emphasis is placed on window functions. Many illustrations and easy-to-solve exercises make the book especially accessible, and its humorous style will add to the pleasure of learning from it.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This short book is about single-variable Fourier series and transforms with a total emphasis on signal processing … . Each chapter ends with a number of exercises (solutions are at the end of the book). Students with the persistence to finish the exercises without looking at the answers will have learned a lot … . The book’s … focus is unusual and may be a reason for the success of the German editions." (Colin C. Graham, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 k)

“The text reads like you are listening to a teacher explaining very carefully and patiently all the classical Fourier material to his students. … The book is obviously written for the student interested in signal processing applications. … one can conclude that this is a smooth introduction to Fourier transforms mainly for students with applications in mind. … pages at the end of the book give the fully elaborated solutions to the exercises.” (Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society, Vol. 15 (1), 2008)
