 Book Description



The principles of signal processing are using widely in telecommunications, control systems, sensors, smartphones, tablets, TV, video- and photo-cameras, computers, audio systems, etc. Taking into account the growing tendency of analog and digital signal processing applications, it was decided by IFSA Publishing to start a new multivolume Open Access Book Series on ‘Advances in Signal Processing: Reviews’ in 2018.


Written by 43 experienced and well-respected experts from universities, research centres and industry from 14 countries: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Ecuador, France, Japan, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Ukraine and USA the ‘Advances is Signal Processing: Reviews’, Vol. 1, Book Series, contains 13 chapters from the signals and systems theory to real-world applications. The authors discuss existing issues and ways to overcome these problems as well as the new challenges arising in the field. The book concludes with methods for the efficient implementation of algorithms in hardware and software. The advantages and disadvantages of different approaches are presented in the context of practical examples.


In order to offer a fast and easy reading of each topic, every chapter in this volume is independent and self-contained. All chapters have the same structure: first, an introduction to specific topic under study; second, particular field description including sensing or/and measuring applications. Each of chapter is ending by well selected list of references with books, journals, conference proceedings and web sites.


‘Advances in Signal Processing: Reviews’ is a valuable resource for graduate, post-graduate students, researchers, practicing engineers and scientists in electronics, communications, and computer engineering, including artificial intelligence.
