Tutorial Overview of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for Practicing Engineers

Hakim M. Mesiwala, Ph.D.

Tuesday, Mar 16, 2004 - 7:00 pm          

Dr. Hakim M. Mesiwala will provide an overview of the field of Digital Signal Processing. He will also discuss DSP applications such as communications and image processing, as well as various approaches to learning DSP. The emphasis of the presentation will be on the self-study of DSP. The talk will provide details on an approach for self-study, including some examples, and will provide details on the sources of material used for self-study such as development tools, books, literature, vendor-provided kits and courses.
