Window functions—otherwise known as weighting functions, tapering functions, or apodization functions—are mathematical functions that are zero-valued outside the chosen interval. They are well established as a vital part of digital signal processing. Window Functions and their Applications in Signal Processing presents an exhaustive and detailed account of window functions and their applications in signal processing, focusing on the areas of digital spectral analysis, design of FIR filters, pulse compression radar, and speech signal processing.
Comprehensively reviewing previous research and recent developments, this book:
Provides suggestions on how to choose a window function for particular applications
Discusses Fourier analysis techniques and pitfalls in the computation of the DFT
Introduces window functions in the continuous-time and discrete-time domains
Considers two implementation strategies of window functions in the time- and frequency domain
Explores well-known applications of window functions in the fields of radar, sonar, biomedical signal analysis, audio processing, and synthetic aperture radar
Mobile Wireless Communications A wide range of real-world examples illustrates the theoretical aspects of this tutorial introduction to digital mobile wireless networks. In particular, 2.5G and 3G packet-switched systems are discussed in detail, as are wireless LANs and personal-area networks. Many worked examples and homework exercises are provided, and a solutions manual is... Beginning Groovy, Grails and Griffon
Web frameworks are playing a major role in the creation of today's most compelling web applications, because they automate many of the tedious tasks, allowing developers to instead focus on providing users with creative and powerful features. Java developers have been particularly fortunate in this area, having been able to take advantage...
Ecological Genomics: Ecology and the Evolution of Genes and Genomes
Researchers in the field of ecological genomics aim to determine how a genome or a population of genomes interacts with its environment across ecological and evolutionary timescales. Ecological genomics is trans-disciplinary by nature. Ecologists have turned to genomics to be able to elucidate the mechanistic bases of the biodiversity their...
