This exceptionally well-written and well-organized text is the outgrowth of a course given every year for 45 years at the Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden. The object of the course was to give students a basic knowledge of Fourier analysis and certain of its applications. The text is self-contained with respect to such analysis; however, in areas where the author relies on results from branches of mathematics outside the scope of this book, references to widely used books are given.
