Over the last decade, digital signal processing has matured; thus, digital signal processing techniques have played a key role in the expansion of electronic products for everyday use, especially in the field of audio, image and video processing. Nowadays, digital signal is used in MP3 and DVD players, digital cameras, mobile phones, and also in radar processing, biomedical applications, seismic data processing, etc.
This book aims to be a text book which presents a thorough introduction to digital signal processing featuring the design of digital filters. The purpose of the first part (Chapters 1 to 9) is to initiate the newcomer to digital signal and image processing whereas the second part (Chapters 10 and 11) covers some advanced topics on stability for 2-D filter design. These chapters are written at a level that is suitable for students or for individual study by practicing engineers.
When talking about filtering methods, we refer to techniques to design and synthesize filters with constant filter coefficients. By way of contrast, when dealing with adaptive filters, the filter taps change with time to adjust to the underlying system. These types of filters will not be addressed here, but are presented in various books such as [HAY 96], [SAY 03], [NAJ 06].
Chapter 1 provides an overview of various classes of signals and systems. It discusses the time-domain representations and characterizations of the continuous-time and discrete-time signals.
