Digital Signal Processing


Digital Signal Processing (DSP) is concerned with the representation, transformation and manipulation of signals on a computer. Today, DSP has become an important field, and has penetrated a wide range of application systems, such as consumer electronics, digital communications, medical imaging and so on. With the dramatic increase of the processing capability of signal processing microprocessors, it is expected that the importance and role of DSP will accelerate and expand in the near future.

This course introduces the basic concepts and techniques for processing discrete-time signals on a computer. By the end of this course, the students should be able to understand the most important principles in DSP. The course emphasizes understanding and implementations of theoretical concepts, methods and algorithms.
