Discrete Fourier and wavelet transforms
Fourier and wavelet transforms have proven to be indispensable tools in signal processing. They are taught in many courses, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. When deciding how to teach these topics, the lecturer can choose from a number of different paths. Goodman’s textbook is for an undergraduate course based... more
It is some systematized exhibition of the whale in his broad genera, that I would now fain put before you. Yet is it no easy task. The classification of... more

Data wrangling with Python

“Wrangle” is a new version of an old word that has evolved in some interesting and revealing ways. Originally, wrangle meant to argue or dispute. For example, you might wrangle with your neighbor over a property line. The meaning drifted over time so that one might... more

Updating to remain the same: habitual new media

This book can best be described as a semi-poetic media studies rant. It reminded me of some of the works I have read by Marshall McLuhan, most of which I barely understood but some bits of which provided profoundly deep insights. To be honest, when I started... more
