This was the mandatory text for Digital Signal Processing (DSP).This review was written after taking the course.Coupled with the lectures of the professor that explain clearly the basic, elementary vocabulary and concepts, this book is stellar.This book does not waste time on matters that should be readily obvious at this point such as trigonometry, summations, partial fractions and integration. Only the key steps are shown for the essential knowledge of the subject.The examples in class and the examples in this book are adequate to work the problems at the end of the chapter. The problems are decently rigorous and help show the variations of cases. MATLAB comes along as well to display its usefulness and versatility. The books specific attention to the program makes it unique, even if this edition is approaching two decades of age.Before embarking this, I would suggest taking differential equations, and an introduction to circuits prior. Perhaps linear algebra as well.Roughly speaking, this is the mathematics of filtering.
I was hunting for a single book which covers the area of signals and systems, communication theory, design (transforms related to these topics) using MATLAB (I have a student version 5.0). Every topic is well illustrated with MATLAB programs along with the associated terms, definitions and the mathematical details along with figures for proper visualization. This book an excellent supplement to standard textbooks in these areas.The presentation is crisp and clear. I experienced the "joy of understanding" while using this text with the software. GRAB A COPY AND UNDERSTAND THE WORLD OF TRANSFORMS!
It covers linear control processes well.Best it gives MatLab code for plotting responses and solvedproblems.It has a 6th order filter called Chebyshev digital filterthat has a very near flat top as a band pass in the Bode plot!These methods aren't well covered in my other booksand will be of use in studying nonlinear systems as well.
