5-0 out of 5 stars Essential !
It is not a reference book but it will help you understanding the core tools in DSP....great book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great DSP book with clear explanations
This is a great beginner's DSP book with clear explanations and is less math-heavy than other books in the field.It was recommended by a DSP-enthusiast friend who has read many books in the field.I'm using it to supplement the text for my graduate DSP course which is more a text for those who have previous knowledge ("Digital Signal Processing Using MATLAB" by Ingle and Proakis)

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for begginers
Alright. This book is really very good for the beginners. It gives you a general idea about DSP. ItS beauty also coming from the small amount of using complex formulas. However you should be careful about a point. After finishing this book, do not expect to be an expert in DSP. You will have understood lots of small topics inside DSP after finishing this book. I strongly recommend you to continue with an higher level DSP book after Lyons' book.(like Proakis and Manolakis).When you read this book, you may surprised so that you can finish it in a couple of days due to its simplicity and attraction. Thanks for the writter so that I will start to read his second book, Streamlining DSP.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best introductory book on this subject
This should be everyone's first DSP book - it's clear, motivating and by no means superficial. It takes you from crawling to walking and you won't even perceive that by the time you end it you are ready and willing tostart trying to run.

Actually it's quite surprising that no one apparently wrote about DSP's along the very logical, continuous - no jumps that will leave you asking how it got there - and intuitive line adopted by the author. In blunt words, if you can't learn basic DSP theory from this book then DSP is not something for you. Any other comments I would add, all positive, would be more of the same already expressed here by other readers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not useful for me at all!!!!
Unlike a lot of positive comments about this book, I found it terribly difficult to underestand! There are things that have been over explained (that bores you to death) and things that do not have any/little explanations (things that I always had problem underestanding them)! What sort of begginers book is this?!

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy read
The book states quite clearly it's a graduate text.With this in mind, I feel safe in saying this book is a very easy read.The examples are easy to follow, and ideas/concepts are laid out quite well.

I'd recommend an intermediate background in mathematics (linear algebra, maybe as high as numerical analysis), and exposure to electronics would help in understanding the examples but isn't necessary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent theoretical discussion of DSP
This book provides a thorough theoretical background in DSP. It is an excellent reference book that covers every major topic in reasonable depth, without getting too academic. It is the only DSP book I've ever needed, and I have designed on several imaging and data collection systems.

My only reservation is that they apparently removed the discussion of state space in the newest edition, which is one of the most practical and common techniques in designing control systems. But you can always get that info online, and you can try it out in Matlab.

5-0 out of 5 stars 6 Stars book!!
Great explanation for every fundamental concepts. For instance, authors give a deep introduction about the background and purpose of Fourier Series and transform in Ch 4. The book demonstrates great details of Fourier Transform by constructing from mathematic components to a whole picture of Fourier Transform.
This textbook explains almost everything and provides much more details than the current textbook I am using in UCLA. I guess this textbook also much better than most textbooks, since most textbooks don't even bother to cover the real fundamental concepts.
However, as I reading along ch.4, there are many typo, but they all format problems so far. Ex. superscript, "x2" = x*x. integration from nothing to w, because it's lower limit become part of integral value.

But still, this is a great book without a doubt!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Things you will not easily find in other DC books.
This is the first book of Proakis I bought. The reason I didn't buy a book of Proakis since my second year in PhD was because I was traumatized by his Digital Communications book when I was a undergrad student. That book was so difficult for me to understant with it's complex equations and notations, I was virtually scared of Proakis. And the other reason was that what is discussed in his Digital Communications book could be found on other texts, explained much simpler with simple illustrations. So I did not have the need to get Proakis. But now, I wanted to learn about quantization effects of DFT/FFT, and there is not much references available. So finding it the table of contents I decided to buy the book. I was not really interested in the rest of the contents, since I already knew about them and had read atleast couple of other books regarding the same topics.
But I was in for a surprise. The book was not evil as I thought it would be. It was easier to understand. Although the part on DFT/FFT quantization noise was quite limited, I found a plethora of other material, which I thought I had read in other books under the same chapter heading, but which I had never knew. For example, the chapter on Spectrum estimation towards the end of the book was really helpful as it described manytechniques such as MUSIC. ESPRIT and other eigendecomposition based specturm estimation methods, which I did not find in any other DC related books I read. Bottom line, this book is gold if you are working the in the area of digital communications, but I would not refer to this book if I am an undergrad. This is more of graduate level book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for learning and as a reference
I bought this because my undergraduate Digital Signal Processing(DSP) class did not have a required text, only poorly written notes handed down over the years, riddled with mistakes. I did some research and found this was required for the graduate level DSP class (DSP II), so I figured I'd save money by getting it now. In that context, it was worth every penny. Great examples, great depth on the material, and very exhaustive. Now keep in mind much of the material is still beyond my grasp, but the material that was in the scope of the class was invaluable. It was expected that I was bringing "the good book" to our homework sessions, and other people began to depend on it.

Now its written, in my opinion, more as a reference than a linear flow that a textbook that instructs usually is. However, I had no problem teaching myself from this book; I just had to skip around some. I received an 'A' in the class, and while I worked very hard for it, the book proved to be a necessity. In my work outside of academia, I've referenced on multiple occasions for material that I've yet to master.

One final note, a good friend recommended Lyon's text, and I was sad I invested in this book prior to hearing the rave reviews. I have personally NOT read Lyon's text, but I can say as a beginner student in DSP, this book was fantastic, and continues to hold its value. ... Read more

What I always look for in a Engineering, Math or Science Book is worked out examples. This Book gives worked out examples as well as supplementary examples for each chapter. So it works out well for me

1-0 out of 5 stars Digital Edition Interface Is Unusable
Unfortunately the interface for the digital version of this book is very awkward.I purchased the paper version of the book, and has proved to be quite useful.Hopefully the technology behind the web interface for digital books that Amazon employs will improve soon, as this method of accessing reference books makes perfect sense.Currently, however, I would steer away anyone thinking of purchasing a digital book of this kind, who is intending to use the web interface.

2-0 out of 5 stars DSP book review
This book is mostly composed of formulas and math. It gives little background information on the reasons/motivations for the formulas. I would not recommend this if you are new to digital signal processing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clean book just like new
The book came fast, was much cheaper than a new book, and its quality was practically new.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Companion
This text was recommended as a companion to Oppenheim's "Discrete Time Signal Processing" for a senior DSP filtering course.If your school is like mine, you sit in three hours of lecture a week, nodding and agreeing and feeling like DSP is straightforward and intuitive.Then you sit down to do your homework and wonder, "where did this come from?"Schaum's helps to bridge this gap with compartmentalized topics and numerous examples.The sections help you quickly ascertain how the notation translates and how thoroughly the topic is covered relative to the coursework.The examples help because, let's face it, it helps to see certain types of problems worked through from start to finish.There are many, many examples within the sections and at the end of the sections, worked through in minute detail.If you're into or studying DSP as a senior engineering student, if you're not the top dog in your class but still want to do well, if you learn from examples and from working through many problems that you're able to confirm, then this book is for you.If you're looking for a "solutions manual" type of book, if you want a "cliff notes" type companion, or if you don't understand lecture concepts at all, then this book won't help you much.It's not an introductory text, although it covers introductory concepts, in my opinion there's not enough background on the rudimentary DSP topics to truly qualify as introductory. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Immense volume, meager quality
This is a very large book covering many areas of digital signal processing.I bought a used copy of the third edition to replace an earlier one. Unfortunately, many of the errors -conceptual, not typographical - have remained. For example, the authors state in Sec. 8.3 that the frequency response of an elliptic (Cauer) filter is a rational function of a Jacobian elliptic function of frequency.An electrical engineer would know that a transfer function of a network of discrete components is a rational function of frequency, whereas the Jacobian elliptic is a transcendental function.The typographical error in the name of the mathematician Schur has finally been corrected attesting to the fact that neither author ever read the original paper.The presentation is extremely detailed in trivialities, with as many pictures, including a derivation of the sum of a geometric series as an exercise, a subject usually taught in high school.Finally, as another example, the solution's manual gives the wrong answer for Problem 2.9(a) stating, in effect, that a periodic function possesses a limit as its argument tends to infinity, showing complete ignorance of the notion of limit by the authors.Books such as this have little educational value, confusing the student with tons of irrelevant information, non-standard nomenclature - the Cauchy Residue Theorem in Sec. 3.1.2 is renamed to Cauchy Integral Theorem - and wrong answers.This book, if properly corrected, would be very useful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellet handbook for system identification background
It's very very useful book for system identification specially newstarted, because of the fact that system identification is heavily related DFT, FFT, Spectral Analysis, Wiener-Khinchine relations and so on. Congratulations !!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A great theoretical introduction to DSP
This book is a great theoretical introduction to DSP. Although its size looks intimidating and there is a lot of math, this book is very good for a beginner because firstly, the size of the book is due to numerous examples as well as clear and detailed explanations for most of the concepts and secondly, it is possible to skip over much of the math if you are so inclined and take away the gist of the section. This is the case in some of the more advanced topics covered which may be suitable for a second reading.

Some of the things I liked in this book are:
- The organization of the material and lucidity of the writing and explanation
- Consistency of notation
- The concepts of frequency in continuous and discrete time signals in Chapter 1
- The long introduction to discrete time systems and the concepts of linear time invariance in Chapter 2
- The explanation of Fourier series and Fourier transforms of continuous time and discrete time signals (periodic and non periodic) in Chapter 4 is the best part of this book
- Frequency domain characteristics of LTI systems in Chapter 4
- The way the DFT was introduced and its relationship with the DTFT in Chapter 5
- Sampling and reconstruction of signals in Chapter 9

Some of the things I did not like in this book are:
- The way the sampling theorem was derived in Chapter 4. In DSP you can derive the same thing in many ways but in many cases one method is more intuitive and simpler than the rest. There is an easier way to derive the sampling theorem
- There are mistakes in some equations. Not a major issue though
- There is no MATLAB or computer exercises or examples anywhere. This is a pity because you can learn so much and get a lot of insights with a few hours of DSP with MATLAB. Also there are some things like filter design which are done only on a computer
- I did not like the treatment of Multirate DSP in Chapter 10
- There is no treatment of 2D processing anywhere

On the whole this is a great theoretical introduction to DSP with a few minor drawbacks. I would still recommend this book over the ones by Oppenheim and Mitra for a beginner. But I would wait for the fourth edition that comes out in Feb. 2006 before buying any DSP book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Something is missing ...
This book was required for a graduate-level DSP course, but I found it quite insufficient for study without a VERY good set of classroom notes.There are mistakes in various equations throughout the text, little to no examples, and I have yet to find a solutions manual.

The one nice thing I can say about the text is that it is thorough in its coverage.The book covers almost every topic I can think of for both undergraduate and graduate-level courses.My course has supplemented the text with "Discrete-Time Signal Processing" by Oppenheim and Schafer as well as "Adaptive Filter Theory" by Haykin.I found Oppenheim's text to be better for the examples -- even buying the Shaum's Outline for DSP can suffice.Haykin's text is for our coverage of adaptive filter theory.

If you're looking for a good undergraduate text try B.P. Lathi's book "Signal Processing and Linear Systems" -- it's much better and has been used at my University for a number of years now to teach our two undergraduate-level DSP courses.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid Book
I am a graduate student at USC and this book I actually used in lieu of the assigned book Digital Signal Processing (by Mitra). I referred to this book mainly because the assigned book hardly had any intuitive explanations and was quite convoluted. Proakis did a much better job in terms of the relationships between the various Fourier Transforms without comprising mathematical rigor. I also have Lyons Understanding Digital Signal Processing which is great for people new to DSP but I felt it lacked some depth in certain areas and did not have sample problems. Overall Proakis does a solid job with this book. I'd recommend it after knowing the material in Lyon's book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The father and mother of all DSP books
This book "DSP" from Oppenheim & Schafer (O&S) is to digital signal processing what Kernighan & Ritchie "The C Programming Language" is to programming: an indispensable classic.

I learned DSP back in 1982 with a bunch of photocopies of this book. Today I own two O&S copies: one hardcover (at home) and one paperback at work. I don't remember finding a mistake, or even a typo, in the book, which nevertheless never went beyond the first edition (the 3 sequels "Discrete-Time Signal Processing" from the same authors are already geared to "textbooks"...). Back in 1975 there were book reviewers (or cautious authors...) that made their best to eliminate the mistakes that plague many modern books.

One of my DSP teachers said that one senior guy had told him how to learn DSP by himself: read O&S, chapter by chapter, and do 10 random selected problems from each chapter. So he did and he has since then published several important papers on DSP... Recently I had to review, seriously, random discrete signal processing and power spectrum estimation: the most readable pieces on these matters which I found were, precisely, O&S chapters 8 and 11.

In the last years I'm teaching DSP at one University. I've already got a dozenDSP books, ancient and modern, but O&S is still the reference I recur the most. If you could cross "DSP" from O&S with Lyon's"Understanding Digital Signal Processing (2nd Edition)", you would get the perfect DSP book: on the one hand, Lyons' is too verbose and avoids somewhat mathematics (by choice), but provides perhaps the best explanations on DSP you can find; on the other hand, O&S provide rigorous equations and both deep and broad coverage of DSP foundations.

If you want really to understand DSP, have a decent Math training (average Calculus, Complex Variables, Fourier Analysis skills), the book from Oppenheim and Schafer is in the top of the list I would give you to learn DSP.

A brief table of contents (adapted): (1) Discrete-time Signals and Systems. (2) The Z-Transform. (3) The DFT. (4) Graphs and Matrix Representations of Digital Filters. (5) Digital Filter Design Techniques. (6) Computation of the DFT. (7) Discrete Hilbert Transforms. (8) Discrete Random Signals. (9) Finite Precision Effects. (10) Homomorphic Signal Processing. (11) Power Spectrum Estimation.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not enough mathematical formulas
In dsp course we are using this book. The problem with this book is that it does not provide formulas for many dsp calculations. Thus, I need to find formula tables else where. Besides, there are not enough examples to further understandsings of the materials.

4-0 out of 5 stars The Old Version of the DSP Bible
"Digital Signal Processing" by Oppenheim and Schafer was, until the publication of their revised book "Discrete-time Signal Processing", the best DSP reference book.

While I would notrecommend this book for self-study, I would recommend it as a referencetext for someone who has done or is doing a DSP course.

Be advised ---the new version, "Discrete-time Signal Processing", is moreup-to-date. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Necessary in your design or teaching task
Dr. Meyer-Baese covers very interesting signal processing topics using reconfigurable hardware (FPGAs) in this work.The book contains a good overview of FPGA technology and tools for implementing digital signal processing systems (DSP). Computer Arithmetic, Filter Design (FIR & IIR), Multirate Signal Processing, Fourier Transforms, Advanced Topics as Number Theoretic Transforms (NTTs), Error Control and Cryptography, Modulation are concepts very well exposed, finishing the book with a rigorous and complete chapter of Microprocessor Design that I teach at University. Every chapter has enough exercises perfectly thought to learn the basic and advanced concepts, which arevery useful for self-study proposal. Also VHDL, Verilog and assembler code is provided.
In short, a high grade choice as initiation or advanced reference in the field of signal processing systems in hardware.

3-0 out of 5 stars Errata for the 3rd ed.please... it is indispensable
From among the many books on DSP I own, I've chosen the 3rd. ed. of Dr. Meyer-Baese "DSP with FPGA", more precisely ch. 8 on "Adaptive Filters", to be the base of a module on adaptive filtering belonging to a DSP course that I teach at a University. The reason behind the choice was that, at first sight, the chapter seemed to have a good balance of conciseness and range of adaptive techniques presented.
This means I read carefully ch. 8 and implemented in Scilab some of the adaptive algorithms. As a consequence, I also examined carefully the equations, mainly those on the Widrow-Hoff LMS and the RLS techniques.
What I found was several handful of mistakes. From the silly ones (the definition of variance in p. 481 is E{(x-av)^2} instead of E{x^2}, as the average 'av' is not assumed as zero) to errors in vectors transposition in the differentiation of matrix-vector products (e.g. in the gradient definition, in the middle of page 483, there should be x[n] x^T[n] instead of x^T[n] x[n]) which, sometimes, by miracle appear correct in the next equations, and ending in the mess with the use of [n+1] or [n] indexes in many equations in the derivation of RLS algorithms in pages 518-521, the lack of exactness in the theoretical derivations converts what could be a very good presentation/tutorial chapter on the AF topic in, at times, a messy bunch of equations plagued with mistakes.
The chapter on AF first appeared in the 2nd ed. of the book (2003). So there has been plenty of time to correct at least most of the mistakes for this 3rd ed. from 2007.
I also tried to found an errata, even that of the 1st ed. of the book which is promised in the preface, but I didn't succeed. That was a severe disappointment.
That said, I cannot agree with most of the Amazon customers which rate the book with 5 stars, and recommend the author to get some picky reviewers that can catch and correct those (and other I don't mention) nasty typos and mistakes. To the reader using the book I suggest him/her to consult, for instance, the books from Widrow & Stearns or Simon Haykin to obtain correct derivations of the fundamental equations behind the basic theory of AF.

1-0 out of 5 stars Barely connected with FPGA,Practical? No
I was so disappointed after I read the book. I had expected to get some practical examples about implementing DSP in FPGA.I regret I was attracted by the name of the book and some reviews definitely not from sillicon valley . Except in chapter1"introduction" there lists some basic FPGA concepts, I hardly say how this book was named as "DSP with FPGA".
It does provide lots of mathemetical models, graphs for each DSP component, I believe it will be much more helpful to writing a PhD thesis rather than using as reference book in industry.
If you are expecting to get some practical examples about implementing DSP in FPGA, this book might not be a choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for DSP Implementations
In this book Dr Meyer-Baese brings in his industrial/proffessional experience from the field of DSP using FPGAS. Lots of other FPGA/Hardware books just talk about the theoretical/concetual/abstract level DSP. Here the main focus is the practical implementation of the different DSP Components
everything from Multipliers to the Discrete Wavelet Trasform.
Each of these components are seperately discussed chapter-wise and is supplemented by applications and also source code in both VHDL and Verilog (mostly in the accompanying CD)
If you just want to know what an FFT is then this book is NOT for you,but if you want to implement this in hardware then this is THE book. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding DSP book.
This book helped me to implement the theory behind DSP. This is a perfect book that you can learn by doing.

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst book on the subject
If you want to learn DSP. I suggest Oppenheim or Proakis.
I bought this book and after going through it for a few weeks had to throw it away!. Lacks mathematical clarity. Looks more like a cook book to me !.
Don't waste your money!.

3-0 out of 5 stars This book is only OK
This book is OK. Its not a very good book as an introduction in my opinion. If you are a new student to DSP I would steer clear of this book and get Oppenheim & Schafer or Proakis & Manolakis first. However, if you are looking for practical coding examples for things, this book is VERY good in that regard. It could be useful to the new student as an alternate reference.

3-0 out of 5 stars Content not up to expectations.
The book covers a broad subject area in adequate detail.However, it is riddled with typos, errors in equations, switched variable names and other "erroneous permutations".It forces the reader to really grind through the examples with caution.There are many "leaps of faith" in the examples forcing the reader to digress into research mode to fill in the blanks.Overall, the book does a decent job of explaining DSP basics.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book!
I am a postgraduate in University of Plymouth and fortunately enough was taught by Prof, Efeachor himself. His book is without doubt one of the most practical orientated DSP book, the writtings are concise, terse and vivid. His explaination style is impeccable, Anyway, Prof. Effeachor decades of experience in telecommunication, audio and medical electronics speaks for himself. Grab this book if you want to learn the real magic behind DSP.

One catch, there are too many typos in the book. Otherwise I would rate it 5 stars. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best book
This is the best book to understand the statistical digital signal processing, in a clear step-by-step mode.
It should be the first book to read on the matter.
Thank you Prof. Hayes, you wrote a great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
Very clear in concept and derivation. The excises following each chapter are also very helpful.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
I took adaptive signal processing at Georgia Tech with Dr. Hayers. This book was used as reference for the class. I really enjoyed reading it. It is concise, to the point, with lots of example and matlab source code which acctually worked. I had learned a lot. More importantly I was able to put into practise during my 9 years industry experience after graduation. Good reference book, I recommend to everyone who is serious about this topic.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book for advanced DSP topics
This book has great material on least squares filtering and spectral estimation techniques. And with Hayes providing the Matlab code to implement the formulas, it is a great help to the student in being able to run the code and see what the outputs should look like. The book reads well and is very easy to use. But it is not a substitute for an intro DSP book like Oppenheim/Schafer or Proakis.

Update - I have changed my score from 4 to 5. The longer I have been working to more I find I use this book and the examples in it to do things. I think this is a really useful book for a practicing engineer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise, and clean

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy this for firewood only
Worst written book I have used in any of my EE courses. I am a graduating senior and intend on spending the rest of my life finding this author. This is a prime display of an author trying to show how smart he is. You are only smart if you can teach someone else what you know. No solution manual makes double checking your answers impossible.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst required text I have ever had
Lousy and sad for a 2nd edition.Examples are few and far between despite other reviewer's comments.Our professor has been kind enough to keep a log of the errors students have identified. There is a solutions manual for this but many of the answers contain errors as well.The only purpose for choosing this book is it covers both Continuous and Discrete analysis.This book will not even be a good reference later so hopefully I can find someone to take it off my hands.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy Text
This is the worst text book that I've used in any course. As a physics senior, I suspected the material in an introductory EE course to be pretty straightforward, which it is. Ambaradar sure doesn't make it that way. With few worked examples, terse explanations and no odd-answered problems Ambaradar makes self-checking and learning almost impossible. Not recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best of the DSP Books
I've looked at most of the DSP texts and personally find Ambardar's (2nd edition) textbook about the best.It will train you to use DSP as a tool, both in pen and paper analysis and in practice (e.g., using MATLAB). Some books will only make you a philosopher of DSP, this one will help you master the skills so you can actually do DSP.

Somehow Ambardar manages to discuss and provide examples on nearly every topic of interest to DSP with the exception of the very latest (see below).The sections are brief and to the point with many worked examples.The problems at the end of the chapter are actually do-able without having a Ph.D! Graphical approaches and shortcuts enrich the presentation and make the text fun to read.

On the downside, multirate signal processing is briefly explored and wavelets are only mentioned.Perhaps these topics will be enlarged upon in a future edition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent student oriented text
The author walks you through the material one small step at at a time.This text is as close to painless learning as learning wil ever get (if I may be forgiven a colloquilism).You don't need answers in the back because he works several examples for you on every page.
If I ever had to teach this I would use this book. ... Read more

Product Description

DSP is utilized in just about every electronic system or device. DSP is taking one piece of information be it data, image, video, or audio, most likely compressing, sending, and filtering it to another location within your application to appear in the form of a document, picture or video.

Like Smith before it, this book is different to most on the market by following a popular applied approach to this tricky subject, and will be the perfect starting point for engineers who need to get into DSP from the ground floor. This book starts with the absolute basics of this integral process.

No experience is expected and with no prior knowledge taken for granted, a refresher chapter on complex numbers and trigonometry can be found at the very beginning of the material. Real-world worked examples, reference designs, and tools - including online applets that enable readers to visualize key principles - complete a package that will help engineers who that needs to learn anew or refresh their memory on this essential technology as they move to projects that require DSP familiarity.

    • Dismayed when presented with a mass of equations as an explanation of DSP? This is the book for you!

    • Clear examples and a non-mathematical approach gets you up to speed with DSP

    • Includes an overview of the DSP functions and implementation used in typical DSP-intensive applications, including error correction, CDMA mobile communication, and radar systems

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Overview
This book does a wonderful job explaining the basic concepts and applications of digital signal process, without getting mired the details. The first half is really the primer,and the 2nd half explains the application of the concepts to the various fields of use. I can't imagine how this complex information could be conveyed any more simply. Kudos to Mr. Parker! I'm buying another batch of these books to help our non-engineering staff (sales, marketing, admin, manufacturing) better understand this critical (and now fundamental) technology.

4-0 out of 5 stars a good overview
I purchased this book to help get me to a level where I could implement understand FFT's at a fundamental level and also help me to figure out a methodology to measure Doppler shift. In both respects the book was a definite asset.

The author has made a conscientious effort to provide good examples of various issues. Unlike some math books I'm sure we've all experienced, he does not lead you down a logical path in a solution only to leave you with "...the rest should be obvious...".

However (here comes the other shoe), DSP is a VAST and complicated subject. There is no way 260 pages can cover the subject enough to bring a novice such as myself up to the level of understanding most of it. I have been downloading/reading everything I could find on FFT's on the web. I found this book good to fill in the gaps in my ignorance on FFT's. I tried to read some of the other chapters as well for background info. I found that you have to have some background info/experience to understand some of the chapters. Chapter 5, for instance, is titled "Finite Infinite Response Filters". My background is hardware in general and I have done a little work with standard op-amp active filters. I read through the chapter twice and still have little idea what it's saying. The author seems to assume the reader has heard of FIR's before.

All in all, I like the author's style. It's informal and seems to flow in a logical manner with a lot of well laid out examples as to what he's saying. I wish he (or someone) would write a book twice this size, and narrow the subject field somewhat. For me it was worth the money. If you want to get introduced to DSP this is a good place to start. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Digital signal processing plays a central role in the development of modern communication and information processing systems. The theory and application of signal processing is concerned with the identification, modelling and utilisation of patterns and structures in a signal process. The observation signals are often distorted, incomplete and noisy and therefore noise reduction, the removal of channel distortion, and replacement of lost samples are important parts of a signal processing system.

The fourth edition of Advanced Digital Signal Processing and Noise Reduction updates and extends the chapters in the previous edition and includes two new chapters on MIMO systems, Correlation and Eigen analysis and independent component analysis. The wide range of topics covered in this book include Wiener filters, echo cancellation, channel equalisation, spectral estimation, detection and removal of impulsive and transient noise, interpolation of missing data segments, speech enhancement and noise/interference in mobile communication environments. This book provides a coherent and structured presentation of the theory and applications of statistical signal processing and noise reduction methods.

  • Two new chapters on MIMO systems, correlation and Eigen analysis and independent component analysis

  • Comprehensive coverage of advanced digital signal processing and noise reduction methods for communication and information processing systems

  • Examples and applications in signal and information extraction from noisy data

  • Comprehensive but accessible coverage of signal processing theory including probability models, Bayesian inference, hidden Markov models, adaptive filters and Linear prediction models

Advanced Digital Signal Processing and Noise Reduction is an invaluable text for postgraduates, senior undergraduates and researchers in the fields of digital signal processing, telecommunications and statistical data analysis. It will also be of interest to professional engineers in telecommunications and audio and signal processing industries and network planners and implementers in mobile and wireless communication communities. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A gentle, yet thorough Introduction to DSP for the TMS320C6713 and TMS320C6416
This is the 2nd edition of the book by Rulph Chassaing and Donals Reay...I don't have the first edition so I cannot comment on the differences. This book is a lime green and black cover. Very appealing! I am surprised just how gentle the book steps through the subject matter before it gets heavy into IIR, FIR, FFT and Adaptive Filters. I haven't reached the end of the book yet. I'm going through every excercise and I find them helpful as I go along, sort of building blocks that depend upon one another. The book is incremental in the order of difficulty. I'm sure some of the DSP experts can jump around, but that is not my tactic with this book. DSP is not for the faint hearted. This book is definitelly 100% geek oriented, technical and to the point. I'm am going through it cover to cover. I love the excercises with the GEL capabilities. They are nice, because they are not just static pieces of code. They introduce dynamics to what otherwise could be just another boring fixed frequency and gain sinusoid. The authors seem to be very thorough on the waveform generation portion. Methods used are LUTs, Mathematically Generated, Matlab generated and imported waveforms (very nice approach). Some approaches I have not seen before and I'm glad the authors chose to be very experimental about their sinusoid generation. There are fun excercises spread throughout this book, I can clearly see this gazing through the chapters and I cannot wait to get to the more exciting chapters such as building an FFT based graphic equalizer, speach synthesizer, digital quadrature encoder and so much more. I will probably come back throughout time and give a more adequate review of the book, but in my opinion, it is well laid out and although not particularly a beginner's journey through DSP, I would say why not? Just grab "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" by Richard G. Lyons and additionally "Digital Signal Processing Using MATLAB" by Proakis to get you through the tougher maths and some Matlab based proofs. There are some Matlab excercises toward the end of the book in the last few chapters. This book is generally intended for senior Undergrad or first year Graduate course in Computer Engineering. It requires knowledge of some C and linear equations. I found it very straighforward to understand with some help from the afforementioned books from Lyons and Proakis. Watch out for some small directory issues with the DSK. Depending on which version you use it may be a little pesky having to change endianess in the compiler options. I found I had to do that for every example in the book. Tidious, but not the end of the world. It's not the authors fault. I think more of a project compatability issue with the older DSKs. The price to update to the latest DSK is $99.00 on the Spectrum Digital site. Maybe worth it to some folks to upgrade or get the latest DSKs. I also find it interesting that in at least one of the chapters in the book the authors mention wiring up two DSKs one for signal generation and another for detection! All I have to say to that is...Are you kidding me? That's > $1K in DSKs...Either way, I'm going to purchase the second one, I can see that it is necessary. Couldn't a sound card be used to generate the required signal patterns? Am I missing something...Ugh! Anyway, great book and kudos for the authors. I'm sure many folks in DSP will find this useful and will write more thorough reviews than I've been able to write to this point! I will write more on the next pass...Enjoy your TMS320C6713/TMS320C6416 and your Chassaing/Reay DSP tutorials! They are worth every penny and they make DSP learning fun and less painful! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Note from the book's Editor
This is the book's Editor, Richard Lyons. I was happy to read the positive Customer Reviews of this book, and I thank the reviewers for taking the time to post their comments. However, I'd like to respond to one reviewer's comment that, "Half a (sic) material is repition (sic) from Lyons other title." That comment is likely to mislead many readers.
In reality only four of this book's 28 chapters cover DSP topics comparable to the material I discuss in my earlier "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" book. While I am one of the book's contributors, there are 29 other engineers who contributed their own DSP material to this unique book.

To describe the content of the book, below I repeat the book's Preface.

This book presents recent advances in digital signal processing (DSP) to simplify, or increase the computational speed of, common signal processing operations. The topics here comprise clever DSP "tricks of the trade" not covered in traditional DSP textbooks. This material is practical, real-world, DSP tips and tricks as opposed to the traditional highly-specialized, math-intensive, research subjects directed at industry researchers and university professors. Here we go beyond the standard DSP fundamentals textbook and present new, but tried-n-true, clever implementations of digital filter design, spectrum analysis, signal generation, high-speed function approximation, and various other DSP functions.
With this book we wished to create a resource that is relevant to the needs of the working DSP engineer by helping bridge the theory-to-practice gap between introductory DSP textbooks and the esoteric, difficult to understand, academic journals. The goal of this book is to make the practicing-DSP engineer reader say, "Wow that's pretty neat--I have to remember this, maybe I can use it sometime." While this book will be useful to experienced DSP engineers, due to its gentle tutorial style it will also be of considerable value to the DSP beginner.
The mathematics used herein is simple algebra and the arithmetic of complex numbers, making this material accessible to a wide engineering and scientific audience. In addition, each chapter contains a Reference List for those readers wishing to learn more about a given DSP topic. Fortunately, the chapter topics in this book are written in a standalone manner, so the subject matter can be read in any desired order.
The contributors to this book make up a dream team of experienced DSP engineer-authors. They are not only knowledgeable in signal processing theory, they are "make it work" engineers who build working DSP systems. (They actually know which end of the soldering iron is hot.) However, unlike many authors whose writing seems to say, "I understand this topic and I defy you to understand it", our contributors go all-out to convey as much DSP understanding as possible. As such the chapters of this book are postcards from our skilled contributors on their endless quest for signal processing's Holy Grail: accurate processing results at the price of a bare minimum of computations.
We welcome you to this DSP tricks of the trade guidebook. The Editor and the IEEE Press hope you find it valuable.
Richard G, Lyons
I beg your tolerance for my assigning '5 stars' to my comment here. I did so because I'm convinced this book is an distinctively-useful addition to the literature of DSP.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid
Solid treatment of techniques. Half a material is repition from Lyons other title. But if you dont have that, its a solid one. Little expensive for its size though.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Indispensible Desktop Reference!
As a DSP (digital signal processing) practioneer for over 4 decades, I give this book my highest praise. It's an extensive "how-to-do-it" compilation of tips and tricks that lead to efficient processor design. The presentations are lucid and the DSP configurations are well proven and established. This book is a ready reference and is absolutely indispensible to anybody who works in DSP.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unique tricks and tips for advanced signal processing
I wouldn't advise that students of digital signal processing buy this book. It is a well-written and unique tool for the professional, but it will likely not be useful for students unless you are working on some specialized project or Ph.D. and need advanced and specialized help. The tips are well-written, thorough, and well-illustrated. Part one, on efficient digital signal filtering, will be helpful for anyone from novice to professional. The rest of the book, however, deals with specific and complex topics. Quite frankly, Lyon's excellent book "Understanding Digital Signal Processing" includes most of the tips and tricks in part one and is aimed at the novice at an affordable cost. That book is a much better choice for students. I was looking for discussions on implementation of the arctangent function - don't ask me why - and this was the only book that had an accessible section on the subject. It is THAT kind of book. Have your copy of Oppenheim & Schafer's "Discrete-time Signal Processing" handy, though, because in explaining the details of some of these more difficult subjects the background material had to sacrificed for the sake of producing a compact volume that flows well. Highly recommended for the right audience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Can not be anything else
Rich is a unique author in the world of engineering writing. Many years ago, when his first book came out, I was so inspired that I found him. Didn't take too much looking, he was local then in the SF Bay area. I had to tell him personally that his book was awesome! (pre-cliche AWESOME!). Well, he himself turned out be as unique as his book!

"Understanding Digital Processing" made such an impression on me that I have been trying to write a book on communications ever since (chapters at complextoreal.com) If all engineering books were written as well as Rich writes them, we would not have so much fear of sciences and math.

Be be honest, I have just ordered this book. It has not arrived yet. BUT, I am sooooo sure, it is going to a great follow-on, as great as the first. - Charan Langton

Published by John Wiley & Sons, this book is destined to become a technical classic. It was written in a kind-of light style, with humorous anecdotes mixed in. And, unlike most DSP books--aimed at graduate level electrical engineering students--it doesn't assume a knowledge of advanced calculus. In fact, it doesn't assume a background in computer science math, either (the author's got that covered in Appendix A: Whirlwind Exposition of Mathematics). In the introduction, Dr. Stein bills his book as the only signal processing book you'll ever need, and it is amazingly comprehensive.

It needs to be updated, though.

One of the worst books I've seen on digital signal processing. Can't figure out how this book got 5 stars. Check Discrete-Time Signal Processing by Alan V. Oppenheimor Digital Signal Processing
by John G. Proakis

4-0 out of 5 stars Great explanation of DSP for the computer scientist
This book does what no other book I know does - lays out the theory of DSP in plain language for the computer scientist. This book will probably seem a little on the light side for electrical engineering students and professionals, but even they will benefit from the author's plain-language descriptions and instructive figures. The author has an easy test to see if you have sufficient mathematical background to understand this book - he says you should look at the appendix, which is entitled "Whirlwind Exposition of Mathematics", and if at least half of the subject matter is familiar, then you are mathematically qualified.

The material is presented in a very unconventional fashion. Although the title of part one, "Signals", indicates a traditionally organized DSP textbook, this section contains a chapter on Noise that doesn't seem to fit in with the other four chapters.

Part two is entitled "Systems", and covers ground you wouldn't generally expect in a general DSP text. It goes all the way from answering the simple question "Why Convolve?" to filter design techniques to correlation and biological signal processing. You won't be ready to design biomedical devices after you read this chapter, but it outlines some underlying principles of speech processing and neural networks in very accessible language and prepares the student for further study.

Part 3, "Architectures and Algorithms", is where this textbook really shines. In this section the author equates many DSP problems to graph theory and manipulation, deals with spectral analysis and correlates matrix algebra techniques to finding sinusoids in noise, and presents filter implementation in computer program format via pseudocode. The author also talks about how to produce mathematical functions that the DSP processing language you are using may not implement, and about the basic structure of a DSP embedded system.

The final section of the book, "Applications", takes a whirlwind tour of many of the aspects of communications signal processing and speech processing where DSP is essential. This is not meant to be a definitive text on these two broad complex topics. Rather, it is meant to bring to life the concepts and algorithms discussed up to this point.

If you are an electrical engineer, I would say a better choice would be "Discrete Time Signal Processing", since there is a more mathematical presentation of concepts that is more comfortable to individuals in that discipline. However, if you are a computer scientist, I would start with this book and then go on to more formal texts once you get the big picture presented here. The one negative thing I would say about this book is that I think it tends to oversimplify the mathematical complexity of DSP's sister discipline of random processes and noise. However, for the core subject of DSP from the computer scientist's perspective, I recommend it.

Within 850+pagesMR.Stein has touch all the major aspects of DSP theory &applications, includeing statistical concepts too.Though I am not a computer personal (but electronic) presentation & explanations have been stimulated me to have a different synthesis of concepts & ideas of DSP.This naturally led me to a good understanding with a good insight.Richhistorical details & end of the chapter biblographical notes are very useful features for a mature reader.Although my vivews may not berelevant to a absolute biginer this type of book is a invaluable at certain stage of one's education.Typhos are a little problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding accomplishment in DSP
This book really lives up to its name.The author, Jonathan Stein, has taken a tremendous amount of DSP subject matter and hand-tailored it for a perfect fit for readers with a computer-science background.While the relevant math is still there, the book excels at providing easily accessible and readable explanations and descriptions of the various topics.As you read the various chapters, it becomes very apparent that the author has truly understood, assimilated, and has put into practice virtually all of the information from his listed references and his real-world experience.Stein is simultaneously a practicing expert in the field, an academic master of each subject, and a patient, thoughtful and humorous teacher who knows well the unique needs of his readers.

Computer scientists will appreciate the six chapters (12-17) devoted to Architectures and Algorithms.This emphasis is what sets this book apart from the many other DSP books out on the market.I especially enjoyed Chapter 17, Digital Signal Processors. After reading Sections 1-3, I finally understood the significance of the MAC (Multiply-and-Accumulate) operation, and exactly how a DSP processor allows it to be executed in one clock cycle.Section 7 guides the new DSP programmer with Stein's well-conceived CHILD's play system of DSP task development.And on the humorous side, in Section 8 describing DSP Development Teams, we are told, "Your boss has given you five days to come up to speed (in understanding the new system).In your cubicle you find a stack of heavy documents.The first thing you have to learn is what a TLA is."You will find yourself breaking out with stifled bursts of nervous laughter as this all-too-true scenario unfolds.

Definitely give this book a try and you'll come to understand and appreciate DSP in a new light from Stein's unique perspective.It will make a welcome and refreshing addition to your DSP library. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a GREAT book
I LOVE this book for its exemplary clarity, conciseness and rigor. I liked having both the informal proofs which involve distributions given in parallel with the elementary proofs, thus presenting discrete signals both as sequences and as distributions. The book is written without any annoying mathematical sloppiness, quite common in DSP literature; yet, it is entirely accessible for everyone who is willing to invest an appropriate effort. Also, this is a real TEXTBOOK rather than a reference book, which keeps its size manageable and non-intimidating. In short, in my opinion, this is a must-have book for any student wishing to learn DSP with genuine understanding.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use design of digital filters
I'm an electronic engineer.
I wanted to learn how to design digital filters. This book is very straight forward and all the matlab macros are included so that you can implement the filter design functions by yourself. I used visual basic in Excel. Its the best book so far I have read on how to design digital filters and what is the difference between the kind of filters and windows you choose. Now it is much easier to understand how to use the Matlab functions needed. It thorougly describes pros and cons of different filter types. Both FIR and IIR filters are covered.
For IIR filters different implementations are described.
A little about number of bits needed for coefficients.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for those desiring in-depth understanding of DSP
Using a systematic approach this book starts at the very basics of signal processing through showing the analogies between window and filter designs and ending at more advanced topics such as quantization effects and random signal processing.

While the notation used in this book is not considered standard, it is consistent and saves from errors (the d for the DFT transform clears many ambiguities of other notation systems)

This book is best fit for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as anyone dealing with signal processing at a theoretical level. I have used this book as a textbook on my first course in DSP and later based upon its knowledge wrote a lab experiment in DSP and in particular consequences of quantization effects.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent DSP undergraduate-level (and beyond) course book
I took DSP basic course at my final B.Sc.EE year intending to take DSP as one of my majors. The book proved to be an excellent study resource (IMHO, of course), providing the main DSP concepts in very clear manner backed up by an examples. The stuff is presented in very thoughtfull sequence, similar to regular DSP basic course sillabus, explanations are easy to comprehend and math is easily understood (bearing appropriate math background).
I used the book solely for the study of the course, found it to be the best learning core, allows you to grasp DSP fundamentials, at least to the level necessary for basic DSP B.Sc.EE course.
The book material stratches far beyond the basic DSP course that is usually taught for B.Sc.EE, however I have yet proceeded to that material, hence cannot vouch for that material, albeit intend to go further into it later.
Hadn't chance to compare this book with its main rival (Oppenhaim and Shafer), however so far found Porat's book leaving very little to be desired to look over to others.
Bottom line - highly recommended for B.Sc.EE level DSP study and probably beyond that.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely useless as a textbook
The author has managed to cram an impressive range of topics into a relatively slim volume.He does so, of course, by covering hardly any of them in any appreciable depth.The textual descriptions are, as the other reviews point out, generally confusing and of little value; the meat of the book is in the proofs that accompany each result.Unfortunately, these too sometimes use an unconventional notation and worse, are poorly typeset: there are often two or three steps combined into a single line and it will take the reader a few passes to figure out what is being shown.

Once you've worked through the proofs, you're hardly done; many of the most interesting corollaries of each main result are discussed only in the problems following that topic.The problems are tersely and often vaguely stated, and there are no hints or answers given anywhere in the text.Many have an open-ended structure (i.e. asking "What can be inferred from ..." instead of "Show that ..."), which is a great format for an interactive seminar but absolutely horrible for self-study.Many of the problems can be solved only after having had the proper insight on a previous problem, but there is no explicit clue to this dependence in most of the problem statements.

The target audience of the book is not clear; the lack of guidance, clear explanation, or useful examples make it clearly inappropriate as an introductory text, but the terseness and the fact that so many important results are buried in unanswered questions makes it of questionable value as a reference for those already well-versed in the field.Some of the problems might provide interesting ideas for lecture topics or exam questions, but the book itself has little value as a study aid.Highly recommended for sadistic professors trying to carve out a reputation as the toughest SOB in the department or math enthusiasts looking for a way to kill some time during a long prison sentence; everyone else should steer clear. ...
