Can anybody recommend me a decent Signal Analysis/Processing textbook. If possible one that deals a little with MATLAB. I have an little knowledge of Real Analysis and fourier transforms. Wavelets i have only had a brief introduction to.


Edit: Sorry for the vague state of the question, I was hoping for a text that would give a decent background to time-Frequency linear methods including; FFT, windowed FFT, Filtering & wavelets. Also an introduction to non linear signals and the related methods.

Some methods of particular interest are the smooth windowed Wigner-Ville,Goertzel's algorithm and Prony's.

There is not enough information -- what exactly do you need this for? There are literally hundreds of equally valid answers otherwise. – Igor Rivin Feb 18 '12 at 2:05

You may also ask at but I agree with Igor that it is not really clear what you want – Alexander Chervov Feb 18 '12 at 17:07
I guess we can close this as no longer relevant then. – user9072 Feb 20 '12 at 14:45

Try this one by Alain Yger, but it's in french. On his website you will find matlab routines.

I don't know your research about, but I think this book can help you

Maybe this book will be helpful: (Digital Signal Processing: A Practical Approach, by E. Ifeachor and B. Jervis).
