Nowadays, many aspects of electrical and electronic engineering are essentially applications of DSP. This is due to the focus on processing information in the form of digital signals, using certain DSP hardware designed to execute software. Fundamental topics in digital signal processing are introduced with theory, analytical tables, and applications with simulation tools. The book provides a collection of solved problems on digital signal processing and statistical signal processing. The solutions are based directly on the math-formulas given in extensive tables throughout the book, so the reader can solve practical problems on signal processing quickly and efficiently.
