Modern Signal Processing
Daniel N. Rockmore and Dennis M. Healy, Jr.
Signal processing is a ubiquitous part of modern technology. Its
mathematical basis and many areas of application are the subject of
this book, based on a series of graduate-level lectures held at the
Mathematical Sciences Research Institute. Emphasis is on current
challenges, new techniques adapted to new technologies, and certain
recent advances in algorithms and theory. The book covers two main
areas: computational harmonic analysis, envisioned as a technology
for efficiently analyzing real data using inherent symmetries; and
the challenges inherent in the acquisition, processing and analysis
of images and sensing data in general -- ranging from sonar on a
submarine to a neuroscientist's fMRI study.
