MATH4FD Fourier Analysis and Distribution Theory
Fourier analysis is the study of representing functions as sums or integrals of simple waves. It has applications across a broad range of mathematical and physical sciences such as the analysis of solutions to partial differential equations, inverse problems and data processing. The natural setting for this decomposition is on the space of generalised functions, known as distributions. In this course we will cover
- Test functions and distributions
- Fourier series
- The Fourier transform
- Applications of Fourier analysis to PDE

3 Assignments and 1 final exam.
Your final mark F in the paper will be calculated according to this formula:
F = max(E, (2E + A)/3)
- E is the Exam mark
- A is the Assignments mark
and all quantities are expressed as percentages.
