The signal processing is a field of the electrical engineering but it is very much related with the time series analysis. Thesedays the commercial softwares are widely used by the reseachers. We have attempted to make a guide for using the R-package in the digital signal processing. It would be good to read the materials in each section first and to follow the plots in the section 8 and to run the attached R-codes. The article consists of (1) Fourier transform and Fourier inverse transform, (2) spectral analysis (3) parametric and non-parametric estimation for the period (4) filter design. Simple theoretical explanations are provided and R implementations are added.
