Fourier analysis encompasses a vast spectrum of mathematics which is often deemed confusing and sometimes frightening to those studying it. The tracks in this album aim to de-mystify the ideas behind the Fourier series and illustrate some of the numerous applications that exist, from telephony to stocking supermarket shelves. This material makes up part of the course MST209, Mathematical methods and models.

The applications selected were common to everyone's experience and the clarity of explanation did much to make a seemingly abstract and erudite subject meaningful
