An Introduction to Signal Processing for Non-Engineers
This book introduces the basic concepts of signal processing for scientists and students with no engineering background. The book presents the concepts with minimum use of mathematical formulations and more emphasis on visual illustrations. The idea is to present an intuitive approach to understanding the basics of signal processing and exemplify some practical applications of the concepts by which the readers achieve basic knowledge and skills in signal processing. Most of illustrations in the book have been created by computer programming in MATLAB®; thus, the reader will learn the basics of using computers in signal processing applications.
