New edition of a textbook for an introductory course in linear lumped circuit analysis. The first chapters introducing passive and active circuit elements, and the time domain analysis of AC and DC circuits, are followed by several chapters focused on phasor analysis of ac steady state circuits. The last part of the text develops the transform analysis methods of Laplace and Fourier and their application in framing various input-output descriptions and design methods. A quick reference guide for SPICE is included. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
