## Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm just taking Calculus 4 this semester, where part of it is also Fourier analysis.

When I was browsing a little bit about the subject I found out that there are several different approaches and so I'm a bit confused now.

So this is how I understand it, correct me if I'm wrong:

There is the approach of pointwise convergence (which we are taking) and the approach of convergence in L^2 (is this called the weak convergence or is it something completely different?). Now the Fourier series can converge in the L^2 space but not pointwise and vice-versa.

Did I get it correct?

Another question is: What is a good book on Fourier analysis from the pointwise point-of-view on the level like Rudin's Principles of math. analysis?

Thanks
