Electronics, Noise and Signal Recovery
Signal processing is a major element in electronic engineering. One of its major problems is that signal detection can be rendered extremely difficult by erroneous "noise" swamping a signal's output. This book is concerned with understanding the theory and introducing the techniques for signal recovery and noise removal. The book builds on an understanding of analog electronics and provides the background for work in domains such as radio transmission, image processing and magnetic resonance.
