Signals and SystemsElectrical Engineering

For sophomore/junior level signals and systems courses
in Electrical and Computer Engineering departments. This text provides
a clear, comprehensive presentation of both the theory and applications
in signals, systems, and transforms. The text presents the mathematical
background of signals and systems, including the Fourier transform,
the Fourier series, the Laplace transform, the discretetime and the
discrete Fourier transforms, and the ztransform. The contents of
each chapter are organized into welldefined units that allow instructors
great flexibility in course emphasis.
NEW—MATLAB programs given in the examples
are available at an Internet site and may be downloaded. Allows students
to alter the data statements in these programs for the endofchapter
problems.
NEW—Symbolic mathematics of MATLAB is used
in verifying the calculations of transforms and in other appropriate
applications.
NEW—Introduces the MATLAB simulation program
SIMULINK to illustrate the simulation of continuous and discrete
time systems.
NEW—Features many new problems; a
majority of the endofchapter problems have either been altered or
replaced. More than 50% of problems have been revised overall.
NEW—Contains short MATLAB programs in most
examples.
FEATURES
Relates the mathematical theory of systems and signals
to practical systems.
<%1>Integrates the advanced features of the student version
of MATLAB into the examples and problems. Symbolic mathematics
is used to verify the calculations in the examples in the Fourier
transform, the Fourier series, the Laplace transform, and the ztransform.
The controls toolbox is used in the analysis of both continuoustime
and discretetime systems.<%2>
Includes short sections on the bilateral Laplace and
Fourier transforms for those instructors who wish to introduce
the students to these topics.
Presents the Fourier series as an errorminimization
result for approximating periodic signals with the sum of sinusoidal
signals.
Includes chapters on statevariables for continuoustime
and discretetime systems.
Requires verification of results for almost all problems
by an independent procedure, where appropriate. This includes,
but is not limited to, MATLAB.
Repeats equations referenced, to prevent students
from having to spend time thumbing back through the text.
Accompanied by a solutions manual for all problems available
to instructors, in addition to disks containing the MATLAB programs
used in the examples and required in the homework problems.
Provides over 300 homework problems and over 150
examples.
