Written for students, instructors, and professionals, this book provides 11 projects that take the reader through the essentials of signal processing applications. The projects include speech coding for cell phones, understanding brain scan imaging, how MP3 players compress the data rate of audio CDs, and embedding private information in music without detection. The book can be used as a companion text to most standard textbooks. This text is also available as an e-book (ISBN 978-0-387-74535-0).
MATLAB, Signal Processing Toolbox, Image Processing Toolbox, and Wavelet Toolbox are used throughout the book for developing working proofs of concept. In addition, a set of MATLAB code files is available on a CD bound in the book.
