The Scientist & Engineer’s Guide to Digital Signal Processing


Price: $ 64 Buy this book

The Scientist & Engineer’s Guide to Digital Signal Processing provides clear and concise explanations of practical DSP techniques. Written for scientists and engineers needing the power of DSP, but not the abstract theory and detailed mathematics.

From the Publisher

This is the hardcover edition of Smith’s classic book. It is also available in softcover under the title: “Digital Signal Processing: A Guide for Engineers and Scientists.” The softcover version is slightly less expensive, while the hardcover edition contains an additional 23 page study guide to help newcomers to DSP. The Author’s recommendation: Choose the hardcover edition if you will need DSP in the future, and the softcover version if your need is only short-term.


Excellent for DSP implementers of ALL backgrounds! A+, November 29, 2001

This review is from: The Scientist & Engineer’s Guide to Digital Signal Processing (Hardcover)

No other DSP text even comes close. I cannot even begin to describe the worth of this volume in 1000 words, but I will do my best:

1) The author explicitly reviewed important fundamental concepts such as convolution, system response, sampling theorems, etc. He did so with incredible clarity and mathematical precision, while maintaining readability. This is key, as it forms an excellent foundation for using the book as a “from-the-ground-up” DSP trainer.

I (also) highly recommend this text to anyone NEEDING TO LEARN DSP UNDER DEADLINE! I have used this text to mentor undergraduates through capstone design courses involving DSP, with tremendous success.

2) The author makes excellent usage of graphical examples to ensure a solid grasp of the concepts. He does so with equally clear descriptive text.

3) The author presents UNDERSTANDABLE techniques and methodologies for solving real-world DSP problems. His presentation consistently relates the results and examples to the fundamentals, reinforcing the reader’s grasp as he or she progresses through the material.

4) Worth mentioning twice: This DSP text is EASY to read!!!!!

If only my entire engineering library were this good. (Note: I am in no way affiliated with the author or publisher.)
