Electrical engineers working in radar, sonar, and signal processing use Fourier transform relationships everyday on the job. This newly revised and expanded edition of a classic Artech House book presents an up-to-date, coordinated system for performing Fourier transforms on a wide variety of functions. Along numerous updates throughout the book, the Second Edition includes a critical new chapter on periodic waveforms - a topic not covered in any other book. This practical resource illustrates how to apply Fourier transforms to many specific examples in radar, signal processing, and antenna design, and it details how complex functions can be broken down to their constituent parts for analysis. Because it illustrates how easily Fourier transforms can be used, this book encourages engineers to solve problems once commonly skipped because they were perceived as too mathematically difficult to compute. DVD-ROM included and contains MATLAB programs that implement many of the results presented in the book.
