# Is calculus background a must for learn DSP? [closed]

I'm beginner in DSP and in the literature some Authors suggest Analog (Continuous) Signal Processing a prerequisite for learn DSP. But it demands calculus background, that I do not have. Is calculus and ASP background a must for learn DSP?

• Short answer - you might get away without it, but it is going to be a huge handicap. – jojek Jun 23 '16 at 12:22
• Mr jojek, I asked meta.exchange.com for show me the way to get away, but did not show me that. Just they awarded me with their "informed" award. So only way for me to get away from here is the way you got away from Vietnam. By helicopter. Regards. – George Theodosiou Jun 25 '16 at 8:11
• Although short question (answer is following), is essential for learn DSP. One, just high school graduate (as is my case), if, indeed, has learned what has been taught, can learn DSP from websites, like this, and books online accessed by Google books.

• Mr jojek, I asked just the specialists in DSP, opinion. Regards. – George Theodosiou Jun 25 '16 at 9:39

• Why not asking it here (the best place on Earth to ask it!)? Like how to find the continuous time Laplace Transform of a Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass, Bandstop etc filter transfer function $H(s)$. You better ask them separately one by one. Then you will have what you need. – Fat32 Jun 25 '16 at 15:30
