Compact discs (CDs) are the standard format for the recording and playback of commercial audio. The recording and playback of CDs use many of the techniques of digital signal processing discussed in 'Discrete-Time Signal Process,' a free course offered by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This OpenCourseWare from MIT is appropriate for graduate students in computer science or electrical engineering.

Discrete-Time Signal Processing: Course Description

This OpenCourseWare from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology covers representation, analysis and design of discrete-time signals and systems. The subjects you will learn about include decimation, interpolation, and sampling rate conversion; discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, DT system flowgraph structures, time-and frequency-domain design techniques for both recursive (IIR) and non-recursive (FIR) filters, discrete Fourier transform FFT algorithm, filter banks and short-time Fourier analysis, linear prediction, multirate techniques, Cepstral analysis and Hilbert transforms.

MIT Professor Alan Oppenheim teaches this free graduate-study course. To take this course, you should have a background in discrete-time signals, LTI systems, sampling, bilateral z-transforms and Fourier transforms for both deterministic and stochastic signals. It is also recommended that you first take the OpenCourseWare 'Introduction to Communication, Control, and Signal Processing.'

This OpenCourseWare about discrete-time signal processing includes lecture notes, problem sets that include solutions, and exams, also including solutions. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the signal processing course page.
