Signal Processing for Communications

by Paolo Prandoni and Martin Vetterli

With a novel, less formal approach to the subject, the authors have written a book with the conviction that signal processing should be taught to be fun. The treatment is less focused on the mathematics and more on the conceptual and practical aspects but the book remains an engineering text, with the goal of helping students solve real-world problems. In this vein, the last chapter pulls together all the topics discussed throughout the book into an in-depth look at the development of an end-to-end communication system, namely, a modem for communicating digital information over an analog channel.
