About the Authors
  • Based on time-tested course material, this authoritative text examines the key topics, advanced mathematical concepts, and novel analytical tools needed to understand modern communication and radar systems. It covers computational linear algebra theory, VLSI systolic algorithms and designs, practical aspects of chaos theory, and applications in beamforming and array processing, and uses a variety of CDMA codes, as well as acoustic sensing and beamforming algorithms to illustrate key concepts. Classical topics such as spectral analysis are also covered, and each chapter includes a wealth of homework problems. This is an invaluable text for graduate students in electrical and computer engineering, and an essential reference for practitioners in communications and radar engineering.

    • Focuses on modern topics in signal processing, such as computational linear algebra theory and applications, beamforming, and array processing
    • Includes numerous analytical and computational examples, and end-of-chapter homework problems
    • Based on time-tested course material taught by the author at University of California, Los Angeles over several years

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book arises from the lifelong teaching of a highly regarded educator with topics of essential foundation to readers of interests to signal processing algorithms. It also contains unique treatments from a respected researcher with an insight one cannot find elsewhere.' K. J. Ray Liu, University of Maryland

    'Yao has written an extensive and inclusive book on signal processing, focused on the aspects most relevant to communication and radar systems and based on his teaching and research experience. Beyond being valuable for an advanced course on signal processing, the thoroughness of its mathematical treatment, the inclusion of topics usually not found in textbooks, and the wealth of homework problems, make this book an excellent resource for reference and self-study.' Ezio Biglieri, Universitat Pompeu Fabra
