Advanced books on electronics and programming
« on: June 22, 2011, 07:33:04 AM »
Hello guys!

I just finished my exams and what to read something for summer :P

Can you recommend me some books on Programming mainly.
I mean advanced stuff, digital signal processing maybe machine vision.
Also some good books about automations like data filters (kalman and so on)

I don't really have in mind something specific. And I have books about how to do math on computers so these are going to be
a problem.

Generally, I just want to hear some good ideas on subjects and some good books about them :-D

P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

Pattern Classification by Richard O.
Duda, Peter E. Hart & David G. Stork

Well, this is the one we read in our Machine Intelligence course. Its mostly about how to classify data using different type of classifiers. We used this along with image processing to classify objects and face recognition etc. It covers pretty much every thing from Bayesian classifiers to neural networks to stochastic methods.
sorry if you know all this stuff, cause thats all i could think of.. :P
'crazy' is the new hype! =)

Basically, I know non. Apart from programming in C and being able to solve some math in the machine like integrals, derivatives and have some experience with differential equation and equation solving, I really lack advanced programming skills.

I'm in the physics department of my university. They teach us electronics and other nice stuff,
but the studies seriously lack programming. Programming usually comes with the master in electronics and telecommunication, but that's at least 1 - 1.5 year ahead of my current studies. And I need to know all the things I can before my final project.

Like how to build clever programs, and and how to approach some specific problems.
And I have some time to kill in my summer holiday time, which I plan to exploit rather
than laying in the sun drinking beers :p (Not that I will miss that)
I also got a nice book today about digital filters. Doesn't contain any automation filters like PID or kalman but it's nice to get you going in DSP for some time, plus the creativity.

Thanks for your reply and suggestion, really if you or anyone else has any other suggestion  and I mean anything that can pop up your mind I would really appreciate it

Thanks again,
Best Regards,

Have you had a look at MIT's open course ware? They have a few (free and open) courses that teach different aspects of programming including the specifics you mentioned such as vision and signals processing (roughly the same thing either way you look at it). I use them all of the time for random topics I become interested in.
