Recent progress in the design and production of digital signal processing (DSP) devices has provided significant new opportunities to workers in the already extensive field of signal processing. It is now possible to contemplate the use of DSP techniques in cost-sensitive wide bandwidth applications, thereby making more effective use of the large body of available signal processing knowledge. Digital signal processing, long the province of telecommunications is, in both research and applications contexts, of growing importance in fields of medical signal analysis, industrial control (particularly robotics), in the analysis and synthesis of speech and in both audio and video entertainment systems. The growing demand for engineering skills in these areas has led to the writing of this book and the presentation of the material of the book at an lEE-sponsored Vacation School at the University of Leicester.
