Applied Fourier Analysis: From Signal Processing to Medical Imaging

Birkhäuser
Free sample

The first of its kind, this focused textbook serves as a self-contained resource for teaching from scratch the fundamental mathematics of Fourier analysis and illustrating some of its most current, interesting applications, including medical imaging and radar processing. Developed by the author from extensive classroom teaching experience, it provides a breadth of theory that allows students to appreciate the utility of the subject, but at as accessible a depth as possible. With myriad applications included, this book can be adapted to a one or two semester course in Fourier Analysis or serve as the basis for independent study.

Applied Fourier Analysis assumes no prior knowledge of analysis from its readers, and begins by making the transition from linear algebra to functional analysis. It goes on to cover basic Fourier series and Fourier transforms before delving into applications in sampling and interpolation theory, digital communications, radar processing, medi

cal imaging, and heat and wave equations. For all applications, ample practice exercises are given throughout, with collections of more in-depth problems built up into exploratory chapter projects. Illuminating videos are available on Springer.com and Link.Springer.com that present animated visualizations of several concepts.

The content of the book itself is limited to what students will need to deal with in these fields, and avoids spending undue time studying proofs or building toward more abstract concepts. The book is perhaps best suited for courses aimed at upper division undergraduates and early graduates in mathematics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, physics, and other natural sciences, but in general it is a highly valuable resource for introducing a broad range of students to Fourier analysis.

Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems 11e, like its predecessors, is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in differential equations may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between. The authors have sought to combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications. While the general structure of the book remains unchanged, some notable changes have been made to improve the clarity and readability of basic material about differential equations and their applications. In addition to expanded explanations, the 11th edition includes new problems, updated figures and examples to help motivate students.

The program is primarily intended for undergraduate students of mathematics, science, or engineering, who typically take a course on differential equations during their first or second year of study. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal twoï¿1?2 or threeï¿1?2 semester course sequence or its equivalent. Some familiarity with matrices will also be helpful in the chapters on systems of differential equations.
