--NEW TECHNICAL BOOKS
The book comprises a one-semester or self-study course, filling the gap between several oversimplified introductions and more topically specialized or formal treatments....Karl's book wins notable points for its easy reading style and its between-the-lines historical awareness. It assumes almost no prior DSP background and te only prerequisites are basic calculus, matrix algebra, and complex variables. It avoids high-level math without compromising accuaracy and pedagogy. Problem sets are useful real-world queries introducing and developing concepts from and somewhat beyond those discussed in the text...Although there are, at present count, over 15 elementary texts on DSP, Karl's is one of the best, and will especially appeal to those with physics, geophysics, statistics, and engineering backgrounds. It is a mandatory purchase for libraries and technical departments.
