Sines, sines, everywhere a sine.
This 2.5 hour class will cover:
- When and why does the fourier transform ‘work’? (Convergence conditions, etc)
- What does linear algebra have to do with Fourier analysis? (A lot.)
- How do we know it works? (Somewhat rigorous derivation)
- Are there similar concepts/tools worth knowing? (Yes.)
The overarching goal is to demystify the magic formulas
and give a more conceptual grounding in what’s going on.
Recommended background: Calculus II (integration),
trig identities, and basic knowledge of complex numbers, with a
provided cheat sheet and a refresher/intro to those tools at noon.
- When: Sunday March 24th at 1PM
- Where: Pumping Station: One Electronics Lab, 3519 N Elston Ave
- What: Deltas, epsilons, bases, sines.
- Who: All are welcome, PS1 members or not. Please RSVP to [email protected] by Saturday so I can make enough handouts.
- Cost: Free!
