Nine years ago I visiting course of physics in college, and my professor telling an one thing which amazing me. I thinks, exaggeration will not tell that this one of most widely us mathematical discoveries — from optics to quantum physics, radio astronomy, compression of MP3 and JPEG, X-ray crystallography, discernment of a voice and MRT. This mathematical tool are called conversion of Fourier, in honor of the French physicist and mathematician of a 18th eyelid Joseph Furye. Watson and Francis Crick us it even James to decode structure of a double spiral of DNA from the roentgenograms produc by Rosalinda Franklin. (Shout were an expert on conversions of Fourier, he for fun naming the book «Conversions of Fourier for ornithologists» to explain an essence to Watson, the inveterate fan of birds).
