Convergence in Euclidean spaces, Fourier series and their convergence, Legendre polynomials, Hermite and Laguerre polynomials. Students may not take a 700 division course if it is being offered in conjunction with a 400 division course which they have taken previously.


 Topics: Fourier series, discrete Fourier and Haar analysis, the Fourier transform, wavelet transforms.
The text is Harmonic Analysis: From Fourier to Wavelets, by Pereyra and Ward (ISBN: 978-0821875667). It is required for the course, but an electronic copy is perfectly adequate. Electronic copies may be purchased directly from the publisher. We will be covering Chapters 1, 3-6, 9, 10 of the text.

Homework: There will be a Homework Zero due on Tuesday May 17th. This will be graded just on participation and we'll use it to make sure the CrowdMark system is working. There will be a total of 6 proper homework assignments, one due every two weeks starting Tuesday May 31st.

Projects: Students taking Math 419 will complete a term project in groups of two or three. Students taking Math 719 will complete a term project on their own. Term project will consist of a written report between 10 and 20 pages, including figures and bibliography. Earlier in the term students will submit a rough draft, and have an opportunity to respond to feedback I give on it in their final draft.

You are encouraged to discuss the homework assignments with other students in the class. However, what you hand in must be your own work. That means that you should write up your solutions on your own. Copying another student's assignment is plagiarism. Furthermore, if you use any written or web resources other than textbook in solving the questions, the source must be acknowledged in your assignment.

MATH 719 is cross-listed with MATH 419. Students enrolled in the graduate section (MATH 719) will be assigned additional homework questions, different exam questions, and will be required to submit a more extensive project.


Students who succeed in this class will:

  • Understand the basic objectives and methods of Harmonic analysis
  • Be familiar with discrete and continuous Fourier analysis in one dimension
  • Be familiar with the main ideas of Wavelet theory


  • Homework 0 5%
  • Six homework assignments 50%
  • First draft of term projec 5%
  • Final draft of term project 20%
  • Final 20%

Graduate Studies Notes:

Important dates and deadlines for graduate students are found here: The deadline to drop a course with a 100% refund is the end of week 2. The deadline to drop with no notation on your transcript is the end of week 3.

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity web site is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University.


Teaching at SFU in summer 2022 will involve primarily in-person instruction.  Some courses may be offered through alternative methods (remote, online, blended), and if so, this will be clearly identified in the schedule of classes. 

Enrolling in a course acknowledges that you are able to attend in whatever format is required.  You should not enroll in a course that is in-person if you are not able to return to campus, and should be aware that remote, online, or blended courses study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who may need class or exam accommodations, including in the context of remote learning, are advised to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning ( or 778-782-3112) as early as possible in order to prepare for the summer 2022 term.
