“Adaptive Digital Filters” presents an important discipline applied to the domain of speech processing. The book first makes the reader acquainted with the basic terms of filtering and adaptive filtering, before introducing the field of advanced modern algorithms, some of which are contributed by the authors themselves. Working in...

This book provides a concise introduction to numerical concepts in engineering analysis, using FORTRAN, QuickBASIC, MATLAB, and Mathematica to illustrate the examples. Discussions include:omatrix algebra and analysisosolution of matrix equationsomethods of curve fitomethods for finding the roots of polynomials and transcendental...

This book is a comprehensive account of five extended modulescovering the key branches of twentieth-century theoretical physics,taught by the author over a period of three decades to students onbachelor and master university degree courses in both physics andtheoretical physics.

The modules cover nonrelativistic quantum mechanics,...

Blending theoretical results with practical applications, this book provides an introduction to random matrix theory and shows how it can be used to tackle a variety of problems in wireless communications. The Stieltjes transform method, free probability theory, combinatoric approaches, deterministic equivalents and spectral analysis methods...

This book was intentionally written to be different from other filter design books in two important ways. First, the most common analog and digital filter design and implementation methods are covered in a no-nonsense manner. All important derivations and descriptions are provided to allow the reader to apply them directly to...

This book constitutes an excellent source for understanding the basic operation of the Global Positioning Systems (GPS). It also allows the reader to take the first steps towards understanding how the Kalman Filter is implemented in the estimation of drifting parameters of the GPS. The "Kalman Filter Basics" chapter is preceded by a...

A practical and accessible guide to understanding digital signal processing

Introduction to Digital Signal Processing and Filter Design was developed and fine-tuned from the author's twenty-five years of experience teaching classes in digital signal processing. Following a step-by-step approach, students and...

This newly revised edition of the classic book, Design of RF and Microwave Amplifiers and Oscillators (Artech House, 1999) has been updated to include expanded derivations and problem sets, helping to make the material even more accessible and easier to master. You also get new material on power amplifiers (class A, B, AB, F, and E...

This important new book explains the fundamentals of electric propulsion for spacecraft and describes in detail the physics and characteristics of the two major electric thrusters in use today, ion and Hall thrusters. The authors provide an introduction to plasma physics in order to allow readers to understand the models and derivations used...

This book is intended for those who need to understand how a switching power supply works. I intend to provide enough information so you can intelligently specify a custom off-line supply from a power supply manufacturer. You should also gain enough information to be able to design a DC–DC converter. I have included basic analog design...

Over the last few years there have been several important changes in the undergraduate curricula in both Engineering and Physics departments. In engineering schools there is an increased emphasis on design type courses which squeeze the time students have for fundamental courses. In physics departments there is an increased need to make a stronger...

A unique introduction for general readers to the underlying concepts of nanotechnology, covering a wide spectrum ranging from biology to quantum computing. The material is presented in the simplest possible way, including a few mathematical equations, but not mathematical derivations. It also outlines as simply as possible the major...
