Signal processing is generally referred to as the technique to analyze time domain series acquired from a physical phenomenon, representing some physical time-varying magnitude. Signals can be of different nature: onedimensional continuous signals (e.g. bioelectric signals, speech, etc); twodimensional signals (images, etc); threedimensional signals (video, etc). However, when we use the term signal we will tacitly refer here (and in many references) to one-dimensional signals. One-dimensional… Expand
