Fourier Analysis shows how to decompose a function (or a signal) as a sum (or integral) of sines and cosines. It is used in many applications including Engineering, Finance, Biology; in fact, in any system where periodic phenomena are important. This subject introduces a more sophisticated version of integration, developed by Henri Lebesgue, to handle the demands of Fourier Analysis. The technique is required for many current applications of mathematics, and this subject will discuss a number of those applications.
