"The authors have crafted a well-organized, up-to-date and highly readable presentation of some of the major components of time-frequency/time-scale analysis techniques of 1-D signals using Gabor and wavelet transform methods. The development of the basic concepts is implemented with a useful set of S-tools in the form of S-code, a library of S-functions and a companion Swave toolbox which they make available as freeware."

From the Back Cover
Time-frequency analysis has been the object of intense research activity in the last decade. Wavelets have become known as a powerful took with which to manipulate signals of a complex nature, such as those with random, noisy, or nonstationary features Practical Time-Frequency Analysis is the ninth volume in the series Wavelet Analysis and Its Applications. The purpose of this book is to give a self-contained presentation of the techniques of time-frequency/time-scale analaysis and to provide a set of useful tools, in the form of computer programs, to perform the analysis. This unified approach should appeal to applied mathematicians, statisticians, and signal processing engineers alike.
