Introduction to Digital Signal Processing is intended primarily as a text for a junior or senior-level course for students of electrical and computer engineering.' It is also suitable for self-study by practicing engineers with little or no experience with digital signal processing. Introduction to Digital Signal Processing covers the information that the electrical computing and engineering student needs to know about DSP. Core material, with necessary theory and applications, is presented in Chapters 1-7. Four unique chapters that focus on advanced applications follow the core material. MATLAB(R) is heavily emphasized throughout the book. Most applications have an accompanying lab or sequence of homework problems that have a lab component.
