How signal processing works: clear, simple explanations in plain English Breakthrough DSP applications: from smartphones to healthcare and beyond Covers both digital and analog signals An indispensable resource for tech writers, marketers, managers, and other nonengineers The Complete DSP Guide for Businesspeople and Nontechnical Professionals Digital signal processing (DSP) technology is everywhere–each time you use a smartphone, tablet, or computer; play an MP3; watch a digital TV or DVD; get GPS directions; play a video game; take a digital photo; or even have an MRI, DSP technology is at work. Now, for the first time, The Essential Guide to Digital Signal Processing offers readers of all levels simple, plain-English explanations of digital and analog signals and modern DSP applications. Whether you sell technology, write about it, manage it, fix it, or invest in it, this is the book for you. Using everyday examples and simple diagrams, two leading DSP consultants and instructors completely demystify signal processing. You’ll discover what digital signals are, how they’re generated, and how they’re changing your life. You’ll learn all you need to know about digital signal collection, filtering, analysis, and more, and how DSP works in today’s most exciting devices and applications. Coverage includes How engineers understand and work with analog signal spectra and frequencies How digital signals are generated and used in modern electronic devices The surprising things that happen when analog signals are converted to digital form How (and why) engineers compute digital signal spectra with Fourier transforms What wavelets are and how they’re used everywhere, from medicine to the camera in your smartphone How digital filters are used in DSP applications Cutting-edge DSP applications, from automatic music-tuning software to medical EKG signal analysis A comprehensive glossary of signal processing terminology and acronyms You’ll gain a clear, conceptual understanding of all key signal processing operations and vocabulary. That means you’ll understand much of the “magic” built into today’s newest devices, and you’ll be ready to succeed in virtually any nontechnical role that requires DSP knowledge.

EDiR The Essential Guide Book Review:

This EDiR guide has a practical rather than a theoretical focus, and is intended as a reference tool for potential EDiR candidates who would like to gain a better understanding of the EDiR examination. A pool of experts has made every possible effort to create a single source that contains everything needed to successfully pass the EDiR examination. Times have changed, and there is certainly a new generation of radiologists who will find this cutting-edge tool a “must-have” to familiarize themselves with the examination quickly and easily. The book is divided into the following main sections: one chapter for each subspecialty; one chapter on Safety, Management and Imaging Procedures; another on Principles of Imaging Techniques and Processing; and lastly, one on Management. This structure follows the same pattern as the EDiR examination, which is based on the European Training Curriculum (ETC) for Radiology released by the European Society of Radiology (ESR). Each subspecialty is covered using the same basic structure: Multiple Response Questions (MRQs), Short Cases (SCs) and CORE Cases from one of the most recent EDiR examinations. Students will thus be able to see all the questions from a recent examination and learn from the answers and comments provided by our pool of experts. Clinical cases as electronic supplementary material complete the book, and links to EDiR preparation sessions are also included, allowing students to improve their knowledge of specific areas.

Multidimensional Signal Image and Video Processing and Coding Book Review:

Digital images have become mainstream of late notably within HDTV, cell phones, personal cameras, and many medical applications. The processing of digital images and video includes adjusting illumination, manufacturing enlargements/reductions, and creating contrast. This development has made it possible to take long forgotten, badly damaged photos and make them new again with image estimation. It can also help snapshot photographers with image restoration, a method of reducing the influence of an unsteady hand. Dr. Woods has constructed a book for professionals and graduate students that will give them the thorough understanding of image and video processing that they need in order to contribute to this hot technology's future advances. Examples and problems at the end of each chapter help the reader digest what has just been read. Forged from a theoretical base, this exceptional book develops into an essential guide to hands-on endeavors in signal processing. FOR INSTRUCTORS: To obtain access to the solutions manual for this title simply register on our textbook website (textbooks.elsevier.com)and request access to the Computer Science or Electronics and Electrical Engineering subject area.
