I'm looking for a (the?) seminal article on the MFCC method of

in a book. Also, who was the first to publish on this idea?

These are the usual references, especially the 1980 paper.

P. Mermelstein, Distance measures for speech recognition, psychological and instrumental, in Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence, C. H. Chen, Ed., pp. 374–388. Academic, New York, 1976.

S.B. Davis, and P. Mermelstein, Comparison of Parametric Representations for Monosyllabic Word Recognition in Continuously Spoken Sentences, in IEEE Transactions on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, vol. 28(4), 1980, pp. 357–366.

But Mermelstein usually credits John Bridle's work for the idea
	JSRU Report No. 1003
	J . S. Bridle and M. D. Brown

I have copies of the early two if you need them.
