Inaugurating this section of the forum, I think that it could be usefull to have a list of interesting books.
So here is the list, one post per book in order to edit it with comments if needed.

Pohlman is a decent thorough introductory text. Many courses use it as the primary book.

Don't be too afraid of the math. You'll grasp it along the way if you just stick along for the ride.

Some of the stuff is more difficult, but remember that most of the good dsp engineers don't even understand the mathematical models themselves. Sometimes it is just enough to apply them. However, for true understanding of the limits of your tools (programmatic algorithm implementations or any other models) you must understand their limits.

If you need introductory easy-to-start-with Calculus books, I can recommend some if you are interested in understanding the math part better.

Well, i'm interested in audio stream compressing part, so i think the math part may be a very important part.....

are there a lot of algorithms using the calculus?in compressing data?

thank you any way~~~

Some texts (in English, I'm afraid) that could get you started:

Elementary Calculus: An Approach Using Infinitesimals
http://www.math.wisc.edu/~keisler/calc.html
- Easier to understand than most. Free pdf from the web. Please be aware that this books teaching uses a different approach based on inifitesmals, rather than the more common limits approach. Either one can be used, but most texts use limit approach, so you may have to go through that as well (not a hard job).

Applied Mathematics
http://www.its.caltech.edu/~sean/book/unabridged.html
- A bit more terse and can work as a reference. More applied than explanatory.

Multivariable Calculus
http://www.math.gatech.edu/~cain/notes/calculus.html
- Another easier (verbose) approach.

You might also find Information theory related notes on data compression useful at some point:
http://www.inference.phy.cam.ac.uk/mackay/...ory/course.html

I'd recommend getting a good calculus book in your native language as well. It usually helps.

If you need more maths books later on, there are plenty of collections of free texts available on the web:
