This text teaches basic principles and applications of signals, systems, transforms and filters, using both a visual and a mathematical approach. Its ultimate goal is to develop in the reader a thorough understanding of time-domain and frequency-domain relationships, making it possible for the student to think clearly in both domains and switch easily from one to the other. It also explores the connections between analog (continuous-time) and digital (discrete-time) signal processing. The Second Edition incorporates new practical applications and design-oriented examples in every chapter.
