An Introduction to Signal Processing for Non-Engineers

An Introduction to Signal Processing for Non-Engineers

Author: Afshin (Aalborg University, Denmark.) Samani Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/11/2019

This book introduces the main and basic concepts of signal processing for scientists and students with no engineering background. The book presents the concepts with minimum use of mathematical formulations and more emphasis on visual illustrations. The idea is to present an intuitive approach to understand the basis of signal processing and exemplify some practical applications of the concepts by which the readers achieve basic knowledge and skills in signal processing. Most of illustrations in the book have been created by computer programming in MATLAB, thus the reader will learn the basis of using computer in signal processing applications.
