Is there any practical “go to” book that demonstrates the main dsp methods for time series written in C for practical applications? (Doesn’t have to be for hardware, but for any raw data such as sensors, stocks, etc).

If you want a single book on C programming with DSP, then I would refer to the classical one

C (Language) Algorithms for Real-Time DSP

from Paul M. Embree. And as far as I know, there is no modern version to beat it's simplicity, clarity and usefulness...

    $\begingroup$ New prints may not be available. The newer C++ version is available and as far as I can see it ships outside US via Amazon. I believe the C vs C++ (from DSP perspecive) won't be a big difference. $\endgroup$
