A sweeping exploration of the improvement and far-reaching purposes of harmonic research resembling sign processing, electronic track, Fourier optics, radio astronomy, crystallography, clinical imaging, spectroscopy, and extra. that includes a wealth of illustrations, examples, and fabric now not present in different harmonic research books, this distinctive monograph skillfully blends jointly ancient narrative with clinical exposition to create a finished but available paintings. whereas basically an figuring out of calculus is needed to understand it, there are extra technical sections that would appeal even experts in harmonic research. From undergraduates to specialist scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, there's something for everybody here.

The moment variation 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 enthusiastic about the actual global and the highbrow underpinnings that experience bring about our increasing figuring out of our actual setting and to our halting steps to regulate it. every person who makes use of tools which are in response to harmonic research will enjoy the transparent verbal descriptions which are supplied."*

— R.N. Bracewell, Stanford University

*“The e-book less than evaluation is a distinct and luxurious telling of the triumphs of the short Fourier rework. i will suggest it unconditionally… Elena Prestini… has taken one significant mathematical suggestion, that of Fourier research, and chased down and defined a part dozen different parts within which Fourier research and the FFT are actually in position. Her publication is far to be applauded.”*

— Society for business and utilized Mathematics

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