Book DetailsPure and Applied Undergraduate TextsVolume: 33; 2019; 693 ppMSC: Primary 42; 65; 94; 46
This book is derived from lecture notes for a course on Fourier analysis for engineering and science students at the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate level. Beyond teaching specific topics and techniques—all of which are important in many areas of engineering and science—the author's goal is to help engineering and science students cultivate more advanced mathematical knowhow and increase confidence in learning and using mathematics, as well as appreciate the coherence of the subject. He promises the readers a little magic on every page.
The section headings are all recognizable to mathematicians, but the arrangement and emphasis are directed toward students from other disciplines. The material also serves as a foundation for advanced courses in signal processing and imaging. There are over 200 problems, many of which are oriented to applications, and a number use standard software. An unusual feature for courses meant for engineers is a more detailed and accessible treatment of distributions and the generalized Fourier transform. There is also more coverage of higherdimensional phenomena than is found in most books at this level.

The author is obviously enjoying the material and wants to transfer this to the reader with some personal anecdotes in footnotes or some witty winking like when he writes as title of a section 'A * is born' when he is about to discuss convolution. He takes the reader along by explicitly formulating the likely appreciation of the student or a question that the student might ask at some point. He also tries to catch the interest of the engineering students by discussing relations with differential equations (heat equation), but also quantum mechanics, diffraction, crystallography, systems theory, tomography, and others, in the text as well as in exercises.
Adhemar François Bultheel, zbMATH 
This is a lively introduction to the Fourier Integral...I like this book a lot. I think it's a good choice for students who are interested in signal processing, even though it omits a lot of puremathematics topics.
Allen Stenger, MAA Reviews 
A thoroughly enjoyable yet careful mathematical perspective of the underlying concepts and many applications of modern signal analysis.
Les Atlas, University of Washington 
Osgood leads his readers from the basics to the more sophisticated parts of applicable Fourier analysis with a lively style, a light touch on the technicalities, and an eye toward communications engineering. This book should be a great resource for students of mathematics, physics, and engineering alike.
Gerald B. Folland, University of Washington 
Fourier analysis with a swing in its step.
Tom Körner, University of Cambridge
