For sophomore to senior-level courses in Digital Signal Processing and Signal Processing in departments of engineering and technology. Conveying to students a sense of excitement regarding DSP, this text provides thorough coverage of digital signal processing techniques and all essential theory-extensively supported by examples, but not dependent on calculus. It includes a variety of interesting and in-depth DSP explorations to help establish the link between theory and practice, and an introduction to hardware and software for digital signal processors.

Back cover copy

Digital signal processing (DSP) can no longer be considered the domain of graduate students and researchers. It now pervades the technology that we take for granted in our homes and offices, and its influence is growing. Increasingly, DSP is being considered an essential technical skill.

FUNDAMENTALS OFDIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING was written to create an accessible resource for college and university students, engineers, and computer scientists who want to gain a working knowledge of the principles, applications, and language of DSP. To make the ideas accessible, calculus is not used in the main text. Essential mathematical topics needed to understand the material are included in an appendix.

All key concepts of DSP are covered in this text, including details of how to perform transforms and design filters. The coverage is heavily supported by examples throughout the text, which focus on real-life sounds such as speech, whale songs, and seismic vibrations and on real-life images such as fingerprints, bacteria, and airport X-rays.

The CD packaged with the book includes sample sounds, images, data, and movies for most chapters, as well as software for spectrograms and wavelets. The sun symbol in the margins of the text indicates illuminating material is available on the CD. Matlab(TM) files and examples of how to use them are also included so the reader can verify methods presented in the text and solve end-of-chapter problems with ease. Quick tests of basic chapter concepts are provided as well.

Instructors using this book will benefit from the accompanying Instructor's Manual with CD-ROM (ISBN: 0-13-033263-1).
