This text uses the principles of discrete-time signal processing to introduce and analyze digital communications connecting continuous-time and discrete-time ideas. The text brings under one cover the theoretical and practical issues from discrete-time signal processing, discrete-time filter design, multi-rate discrete-time processing, estimation theory, signal space analysis, numerical algorithms all focused on digital communications. A useful reference for programmers. nbsp;
