This is a radically different approach from modern mathematics texts, which tend to hide behind vast arrays of symbols and formalism. Lanczos, like Feynman,
was so brilliant that even very complicated mathematics and physics seemed simple to him. His goal was to help the reader see how simple it all was, too.
- From the Foreword
Originally published in 1966, this well-written and still-cited text covers Fourier analysis, a foundation of science and engineering. Many modern textbooks are filled with specialized terms and equations that may be confusing, but this book uses a friendly, conversational tone to clarify the material and engage the reader. The author meticulously develops the topic and uses 161 problems integrated into the text to walk the student down the simplest path to a solution.
Intended for students of engineering, physics, and mathematics at both advanced undergraduate and graduate levels.
About the Author
Cornelius Lanczos (1893–1974) held positions at Purdue University, the U.S. National Bureau of Standards, University of Washington, Boeing, and the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. He wrote eight books and won the Chauvenet Prize for Excellence in Expository Mathematical Writing in 1960. The six-volume Collected Published Papers with Commentaries appeared in 1998.
