Signals and Systems-Electrical 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 discrete-time and the
discrete Fourier transforms, and the z-transform. The contents of
each chapter are organized into well-defined units that allow instructors
great flexibility in course emphasis.
NEWMATLAB 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 end-of-chapter
NEWSymbolic mathematics of MATLAB is used
in verifying the calculations of transforms and in other appropriate
NEWIntroduces the MATLAB simulation program
SIMULINK to illustrate the simulation of continuous and discrete
NEWFeatures many new problems; a
majority of the end-of-chapter problems have either been altered or
replaced. More than 50% of problems have been revised overall.
NEWContains short MATLAB programs in most
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 z-transform.
The controls toolbox is used in the analysis of both continuous-time
and discrete-time 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 error-minimization
result for approximating periodic signals with the sum of sinusoidal
Includes chapters on state-variables for continuous-time
and discrete-time 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
