A sweeping exploration of the improvement and far-reaching functions of harmonic research similar to sign processing, electronic song, Fourier optics, radio astronomy, crystallography, clinical imaging, spectroscopy, and extra. that includes a wealth of illustrations, examples, and fabric no longer present in different harmonic research books, this designated monograph skillfully blends jointly historic narrative with clinical exposition to create a entire but available paintings. whereas merely an knowing of calculus is needed to understand it, there are extra technical sections that may attraction even experts in harmonic research. From undergraduates to expert scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, there's something for everybody here.

The moment version of *The Evolution of utilized Harmonic research *contains a brand new bankruptcy on atmospheric physics and weather swap, making it extra correct for today’s viewers.

Praise for the 1st edition:

*"…can be completely advised to any reader who's taken with the actual international and the highbrow underpinnings that experience result in our increasing knowing of our actual atmosphere and to our halting steps to manage it. all people who makes use of tools which are in line with harmonic research will enjoy the transparent verbal descriptions which are supplied."*

— R.N. Bracewell, Stanford University

*“The ebook less than evaluate is a different and opulent telling of the triumphs of the quick Fourier rework. i will suggest it unconditionally… Elena Prestini… has taken one significant mathematical concept, that of Fourier research, and chased down and defined a part dozen diverse parts within which Fourier research and the FFT at the moment are in position. Her e-book is way to be applauded.”*

— Society for commercial and utilized Mathematics

*“This isn't really easily a ebook approximately arithmetic, or maybe the heritage of arithmetic; it's a tale approximately how the self-discipline has been utilized (to borrow Fourier’s expression) to ‘the public strong and the reason of average phenomena.’ … This booklet constitutes an important addition to the library of well known mathematical works, and a worthy source for college kids of mathematics.”*
