### Abstract:

"Preface The rationale behind this textbook is to provide all the necessary mathematical background to facilitate the training and education of students and specialists working in the interrelated elds of signal processing, telecommunications and networking. Our intention was to create a self-contained textbook that contains both the fundamental results in the areas of signal processing, telecommunications and networking as well as the more advanced results and recent research trends in these areas. In our collective academic experience, students often begin their graduate education with widely varying undergraduate backgrounds in terms of needed subjects such as probability theory, stochastic processes, statistics, linear algebra, calculus, optimization techniques, game theory and queuing theory. While some students are well prepared for advanced courses in signal processing, telecommunications and networking, others are not as well prepared and must make extra remedial e orts. However, obtaining the necessary mathematical background is often difficult because these topics are usually dispersed across a large number of courses, where the emphasis is frequently put on topics di erent than signal processing, telecommunications and networking. We hope that this textbook will serve as a reference for graduate level students to reach a common standard level of preparedness before undertaking more advanced specialized studies. We believe that this book will be also useful for researchers, engineers, and scientists working in related areas in electrical engineering, computer science, bioinformatics and system biology"--

Publisher Synopsis

"Here is a book providing the mathematical tools for a large range of researchers, more precisely for future researchers. First, we remark that the involved range is quite new, since many books give mathematical tools for signal processing, for communications or for networking. But this volume gives the tools for all three domains. In this way, a large group of students and researchers is addressed. Therefore the diversity of the subjects is larger. ... the chapters are written by well-known active workers in the domain. ... The included examples are interesting and suggestive. ... The book will be helpful for students and researchers to be acquainted with the recent trends in the areas included in the book. We think we are faced with an excellent book that will soon become a standard reference in the respective areas."-Dumitru Stanomir (Bucuresti), Zentralblatt MATH, 1254 - 1 Read more...
