This book provides a modern and self-contained introduction to digital signal processing (DSP). It is supplemented by a vast number of end-of-chapter problems such as worked examples, drill exercises, and application oriented problems that require the use of computational resources such as MATLAB. Also, many figures have been included to help grasp and visualize critical concepts. Results are tabulated and summarized for easy reference and access. The text also provides a broader perspective to the content by introducing useful applications and additional special topics in each chapter. These form the background for more advanced graduate courses.
