Contains 36 lectures solely on Fourier analysis and the FFT. Time and frequency domains, representation of waveforms in terms of complex exponentials and sinusoids, convolution, impulse response and the frequency transfer function, modulation and demodulation are among the topics covered. The text is linked to a complete FFT system on the accompanying disk where almost all of the exercises can be either carried out or verified. End-of-chapter exercises have been carefully constructed to serve as a development and consolidation of concepts discussed in the text.
