MATH4FD Fourier Analysis and Distribution Theory

Second Semester
10 points

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
