The objective of this chapter is to provide the reader with the necessary mathematical basis for understanding communication systems in conjunction with probability theory and stochastic processes. The reader will become familiar with concepts and equations involving Fourier series, which have a significant historical relevance for the theory of communications. Furthermore, both the theory and properties of the Fourier transform will be presented, which constitute powerful tools for spectral analysis (Alencar 1999).
