Michael Weeks, Digital Signal Processing Using MATLAB and Wavelets, second edition, Jones and Bartlett Publishers, 2010, ISBN: 978-0763784225.
These are recommended:
Richard Lyons, Understanding Digital Signal Processing, Addison-Wesley, 1997, ISBN 0-201-63467-8 (Recommended).
Strang and Nguyen, Wavelets and Filter Banks, Revised Edition, Wellesley-Cambridge Press, 1997, ISBN 0-9614088-7-1 (Recommended).


* Time permitting means that we probably will not have the time to cover these topics with as much detail as the book. However, all of these topics will be covered. For example, the Haar Wavelet is covered in Strang's Chapter 5, but it is also covered briefly in earlier chapters.

CSc 4210/6210 Computer Architecture, or permission of instructor

The nature of information, signals, transforms, applications. Topics include periodic sampling, Fourier transforms, finite impulse response filters, signal averaging, the Haar transform, and the wavelet transform.

My assumptions :
  You are here to learn the topic as best you can
  You will give your best effort
  You will read the book
  You will come to class on time and stay to the end
  You will pay attention and communicate
  You will use class time for class-related activities only

Instruction, Research, and Service are the three main components of a university.
  How will you serve this class?
