"Here is a book providing the mathematical tools for a large range of researchers, more precisely for future researchers. First, we remark that the involved range is quite new, since many books give mathematical tools for signal processing, for communications or for networking. But this volume gives the tools for all three domains. In this way, a large group of students and researchers is addressed. Therefore the diversity of the subjects is larger. ... the chapters are written by well-known active workers in the domain. ... The included examples are interesting and suggestive. ... The book will be helpful for students and researchers to be acquainted with the recent trends in the areas included in the book. We think we are faced with an excellent book that will soon become a standard reference in the respective areas."
