Presenting a unified view of the theory and applications of discrete and continuous-time signals this book also offers the mathematical point of view, as well as the discrete-time signal processing perspective, bringing together information previously available only in research papers, in engineering and applied mathematics. It develops complete systems from their sophisticated mathematical models to their final applications and takes a holistic approach which gives a view of classic signal processing problems. After reviewing classical (Fourier) methods, state-of-the-art results in subband coding, wavelets and their generalizations are covered. Based on theoretical principles, real results are shown including emerging standards for speech, audio, image and video compression. Mathematical results many signal processors consider not common knowledge are discussed in detail.
