Similarly, you may ask, why Fourier series is used in communication engineering?

**Fourier Transform** converts any signal fromtimedomain to frequency domain. So, to conclude **Fourier**analysisis very important for analysis of signals and systemsin**communication engineering** and it is the main reason formanyof the advancements in **communication engineering** overlastseveral decades.

Subsequently, question is, what is Fourier analysis used for? **Fourier analysis** is **used in**electronics,acoustics, and communications. Many waveforms consistof energy ata fundamental frequency and also at harmonicfrequencies (multiplesof the fundamental). The relative proportionsof energy in thefundamental and the harmonics determines the shapeof thewave.

Besides, what is the advantage of Fourier series?

**Advantages**. The main **advantage ofFourier**analysis is that very little information is lost fromthe signalduring the transformation. The **Fourier transform**maintainsinformation on amplitude, harmonics, and phase and usesall partsof the waveform to translate the signal into thefrequencydomain.

What is the application of Fourier Transform?

**Fourier Transforms** havemany**applications**, mainly it converts time domain signaltofrequency domain signals, at which signals canbeanalyzed.
