The Fourier transform has many applications, in fact any field of physical science that uses sinusoidal signals, such as engineering, physics, applied mathematics, and chemistry, will make use of Fourier series and Fourier transforms. It would be impossible to give examples of all the areas where the Fourier transform is involved, but here are some examples from physics, engineering, and signal processing.

On to Fourier Series or on to Fourier Transform

 or on to Discrete Fourier Transform or on to Fast Fourier Transform
