Chapter 1 Introduction
What Is a Signal? A signal is defined as any physical quantity that varies with time, space, or any other independent variable or variables. Mathematically, we describe a signal as a function of one or more independent variables.

Analog Signal Processing Most of the signals encountered in science and engineering are analog in nature. That is, the signals are functions of a continuous variable and usually take on values in a continuous range. Such signals may be processed directly by appropriate analog systems. In such a case, we say that the signal has been processed directly in its analog form.

Typical Digital Signal Processing System Digital processing of analog signals proceeds in three stages: The analog signal is digitized. This process is called A/D conversion. The digitized samples are processed by a digital signal processor. The resulting output samples may be converted back into analog form. This process is called D/A conversion.
Digital Signal Processor The digital signal processor may be a hardwired digital processor configured to
