Scott Miller and Donald Childers with Probability and Random Processes, 2nd edition, Miller and Childers have developed a text that is focused on creating a level presentation with pertinent applications to signal processing and communication areas of key interest to students and professionals in today's booming communications industry. It is aimed at practicing engineers as well as undergraduated and graduate students and includes unique treatments of narrowband random processes and simulation techniques.
The appendices provide a refresher in such areas as linear algebra, set theory, and signals and systems as well as tables of random variables and other hand reference material. The book also includes applications in digital communications, information theory, coding theory, image processing, speech analysis, synthesis and recognition, and others.
Includes many real world applications in signal processing and communications.
Clearly presents concepts through exceptional exposition and numerous worked out problems.
Includes MatLab exercises and applications throughout the text; other software may also be used.
Features an entire chapter devoted to simulation techniques.
