The Fourier transform is both a theory and a mathematical tool with many applications in engineering and science. This course will emphasize relating the theoretical principles of the Fourier transform to solving practical engineering and science problems. Learn both specific techniques and general principles of the theory and develop the ability to recognize when, why, and how it is used. Develop a greater appreciation of its meaning and value through practical use of the transform.
