Errata for the book: 'Understanding Digital Signal Processing'

Rick LyonsOctober 4, 2017

This blog post provides, in one place, the errata for each of the many different Editions/Printings of my book Understanding Digital Signal Processing.

If you would like the errata for your copy of the book, merely scroll down and click on the appropriate red line below. For the American versions of the various Editions of the book you'll need to know the "Printing Number" of your copy of the book. If you are not sure how to find the "Printing Number", see the instructions later in this blog.

If you cannot find your version of my book in the following list, chances are that you own an oddball version over which I had no influence or control.  You can see images of a few of those 'oddball' versions at the end of this blog.

American 1st Edition

Indian 1st Edition

Chinese 1st Edition

American 2nd Edition

American 3rd Edition

International 3rd Edition

Indian 3rd Edition


American First Edition: Finding the Printing Number

You can determine the "Printing Number" of the American version of the 1st Edition of the book by looking at the page just before the "Dedication" page. On that page (before the Dedication) you'll see all sorts of publisher-related information. Down toward the bottom of the page you may see lines printed something like:

    ISBN 0-201-63467-8

    6 7 8 9 10 MA 02 01 00 99

That initial 6 on the second line above means the "Sixth Printing". A later printing shows something like:

    0-201-63467-8

    910-MA-02

That initial 9 on the second line above means the "Ninth Printing". An even later printing shows something like this:

    0-201-63467-8

    11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 MV 05 04 03

That initial 11 on the second line above means the "Eleventh Printing".

American Second and Third Editions: Finding the Printing Number

You can determine the "Printing Number" of the American version of the 2nd and 3rd Editions of the book by looking at the page just before the "Dedication" page. On that page (before the Dedication) you'll see all sorts of publisher-related information. Down toward the bottom of the page you should see lines printed something like:

    Printed in the United States... (or " Text printed in the United States")

    First Printing

indicating the "First Printing" of the book. However, for later printings the second line above may have the words such as "Second Printing" or perhaps "Third Printing". 

A few oddball versions

If you own one of the following versions of my book Understanding Digital Signal Processing, no errata is available for your copy of my book.
