And what is wrong with that?! In many DSP applications it is
imperative that theoretical understanding of the problems (and
algorithms used to solve them in practice) is achieved before any
advances can be made. People would still be stuck at the 33kbaud
modem (instead of the 56kbaud achievable now) if PhD students
hadn't proved theorems !!
