Working in the field of heat transfer in the early nineteenth century, Jean B. S. Fourier found that virtually all functions of time, particularly repetitive ones, could be described in a series of sine and cosine waves of various frequencies and amplitudes. His work has been described as one of the most elegant developments in modern mathematics. Whatever its stature for the world, the benefits for the radar engineer are epic.
