Summary: Designed for a first course in digital signal processing, Digital Signal Processing: Spectral Computation and Filter Design covers two major topics: the computation of frequency contents of signals and the design of digital filters. While it focuses on basic ideas and procedures and covers the standard topics in the field, this unique text distinguishes itself from competing texts by extensively employing the fast Fourier transform (FFT).
Part 1: Spectral ...show moreComputation deals with continuous-time (CT), discrete-time (DT), and digital signals; CT and DT Fourier series (frequency components); CT and DT Fourier transforms (frequency spectra); and discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and fast Fourier transform (FFT). Part 2: Digital Filter Design discusses linear time-invariant lumped systems; ideal and practical digital filters; design of FIR digital filters; design of IIR filters; and structures of digital filters.
Digital Signal Processing features careful definitions of all terminology and a wealth of examples and problems. All numerical examples and most end-of-chapter problems are simple enough to be solved analytically by hand; these results can then be compared with the computer-generated solutions. MATLAB is an integral part of the text.
