## Description

Introduction to Processing covers the basic theory and practice of digital signal processing (DSP) at an introductory level. As with all volumes in the Essential Series, this book retains the unique formula of minimal and straightforward explanations. The author has included examples throughout of the standard software package, MATLAB and screen dumps are used widely throughout to illustrate the text.

Ideal for students on degree and diploma level courses in and engineering, ‘Introduction to Processing’ contains numerous worked examples throughout as well as further problems with to enable students to work both independently and in conjunction with their course.
