written by Paul Falstad
This java applet demonstrates the Fourier analysis for some common waveforms. Hovering the pointer over the series components allows the viewing of that component. The user can also change the components and view and hear the resulting wave. The page includes extensive instructions for the applet and the source code.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
