The text (published by Wiley, authors S. Allen Broughton and Kurt Bryan) is aimed at junior/senior undergraduates. It covers many basics of signal and image processing, with the JPEG and JPEG 2000 compression standards as driving applications. Most of the analysis takes place in a discrete setting, in a matrix/linear algebra framework, though there is some treatment of continuous and "functional analytic" methods. The text covers the DFT, DCT, basic filtering, filter banks, and wavelets, and makes integrated use of Matlab projects to illustrate each of these topics.
