Any comments or opinions about John Proakis' book,
"Digital Signal Processing (4th Edition)"? Due note, this edition is
supposed to be different from the 3rd.
Is this a good DSP book if you already own Smith's and Lyon's books?
The third edition is one of my three top DSP references - and I gotta
believe the fourth edition is even better.
Yep, I've used my copy of Proakis' & Manolakis' 3rd edition
so much that the binding has completely broken apart. Ha ha.
As for their 4th edition, if P&M have indeed added new multirate
processing material, I'd like to see that. (Typical
textbooks on multirate processing are pretty hard to
read, in my opinion. I'm not being critical of the
authors of such books, it's just that multirate processing
is a very tough subject to explain. I have a small amount of
multirate processing material in my book, and if I ever publish
a 3rd edition I'll do my best to provide more multirate processing
material than I have so far. I believe multirate
processing is far from intuitive.)
By the way, I found a fairly detailed description of the
changes from P&M's 3rd edition to their 4th edition.
