    Integral Transforms and Their Applications, Third Edition covers advanced mathematical methods for many applications in science and engineering. The book is suitable as a textbook for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students and as a reference for professionals in mathematics, engineering, and applied sciences. It presents a systematic development of the underlying theory as well as a modern approach to Fourier, Laplace, Hankel, Mellin, Radon, Gabor, wavelet, and Z transforms and their applications.

    New to the Third Edition

    • New material on the historical development of classical and modern integral transforms
    • New sections on Fourier transforms of generalized functions, the Poisson summation formula, the Gibbs phenomenon, and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle
    • Revised material on Laplace transforms and double Laplace transforms and their applications
    • New examples of applications in mechanical vibrations, electrical networks, quantum mechanics, integral and functional equations, fluid mechanics, mathematical statistics, special functions, and more
    • New figures that facilitate a clear understanding of physical explanations
