ABOUT THE AUTHOR
D. Lee Fugal is Founder and President of Space & Signals Technologies, LLC., a company specializing in the presentation of difficult concepts in an intuitive, understandable manner. He has over 30 years of industry experience in Digital Signal Processing (including Wavelets) and Satellite Communications. He has been a full-time consultant on numerous assignments since 1991.
Mr. Fugal has invested considerable time and effort to understand the actual concepts behind the various Wavelet Transforms. The effort has paid off in methods of representing these transforms as simple comparisons (correlations) with wavelets and/or with the filters themselves. This in turn allows the reader a more in-depth understanding and a more intelligent and practical use of these remarkable tools. As a bonus, knowing “what’s really going on” rather than blind faith in equations is invaluable in the correct use of Wavelets.
In addition to his consulting and documentation expertise, Mr. Fugal has a solid background of teaching at Colleges and Universities. He has taught upper-division University courses In DSP and in Satellites as well as Wavelet short courses and seminars for Practicing Engineers and Management. He helped develop and name a Public Television course “Physics in a New Light” to help give undergraduates an intuitive feel for the subject rather than the conventional “Applied Mathematics” approach.
He holds a Masters in Applied Physics (DSP emphasis) from the University of Utah, is a Senior Member of IEEE, is Chairman of the IEEE Signal Processing Society San Diego Chapter, and is a recipient of the IEEE Third Millennium Medal.
