The Cast of Characters

Because we've used notation consistent with the rest of the DSP world (well, mostly), we've had to use quite a few different symbols in this book, some of which you may not have seen very often before or be very comfortable with.  Things like Greek letters or some types of math operations.  We've written up a table of all the symbols we used in the book, and put in a brief description (and usually, a pointer to the page where they're first used or defined).  The file is in Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) format--but then, if you have the book, you have the reader on the CDROM.  (If you don't, go to to download a version for free.)
