Learning outcomes

Students will learn the mathematical basics of Fourier transforms and some of their practical applications in physics.

Contents

Main topics of the course in approximate chronological order: Fourier series, Fourier transforms, convolutions and correlations, Fourier transforms in higher dimensions, discrete Fourier transforms and FFT. Among the applications we will investigate filter design (electronics), nuclear magnetic resonance (magnetism), diffraction (optics and crystallography).
