A market leader in previous editions, this book continues to offer a complete survey of continuous and discrete linear systems.
It utilizes a systems approach to solving practical engineering problems, rather than using the framework of traditional circuit theory. Numerous examples from circuit theory appear throughout, however, to illustrate the various systems techniques introduced. The Fourth Edition has been thoroughly updated to effectively integrate the use of computers and to accurately reflect the latest theoretical advances.
New edition which uses Matlab for solving many of the in-chapter worked examples. End of chapter problems and exercises also require the use of computational aids. Ten chapters discuss signal and system modeling concepts and analysis, the Fourier series, the Fourier and Laplace transforms, state variable techniques, discrete-time signals and systems, analysis and design of digital filters, and the discrete and fast Fourier transform algorithms. Contains eight appendices. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
