This book by Michael Parker is intended for the many engineers who work in or provide components for industries that use digital signal processing (DSP). While the engineers and designers who implement applications using DSP must be very familiar with the technology, many hobbyists, enthusiasts and students in academia can benefit from a basic knowledge of its fundamental principals, which is the explicit purpose of this book—to provide a basic tutorial on DSP.
