Fourier analysis

7.5 credits

This course treats mathematical methods used in mathematics, physics and engineering. An important starting point is series expansions of periodic as well as non-periodic functions in trigonometric basis functions. A theory for such so-called Fourier series is studied in the course and is then applied to construct solutions to partial differential equations of general interest in different branches of physics and engineering like acoustic and electromagnetic wave propagation.



Växjö is a modern city with more than 80,000 inhabitants. The city has been declared "the Greenest City in Europe" because of its focus on environmentally sound solutions and the environmental programs implemented.

Being a student in Växjö you have easy access to everything – the city centre, the woods and the lakes. The pedestrian path from campus around Lake Växjösjön reaches almost all the way to the city centre and is perfect for jogging or taking long walks.

Campus Växjö is modeled along the lines of an American campus university and is the natural meeting place for students in Växjö. Campus is always bustling with life, and students move between lecture rooms, the University Library and the restaurants, pubs and outdoor recreational areas.
