Book Description

1 July 1996 0136511759 978-0136511755 2

For undergraduate-level courses in Signals and Systems.

This comprehensive exploration of signals and systems develops continuous-time and discrete-time concepts/methods in parallel -- highlighting the similarities and differences -- and features introductory treatments of the applications of these basic methods in such areas as filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback. Relatively self-contained, the text assumes no prior experience with system analysis, convolution, Fourier analysis, or Laplace and z-transforms.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

This comprehensive exploration of signals and systems develops continuous- time and discrete-time concepts/methods in parallel — highlighting the similarities and differences — and features introductory treatments of the applications of these basic methods in such areas as filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback. Relatively self-contained, the book assumes no prior experience with system analysis, convolution, Fourier analysis, or Laplace and z-transforms.

FEATURES:

  • Develops continuous-time and discrete-time concepts in parallel — highlighting the similarities and differences. E.g.:
    • Ch. 1 on basic signals and system properties, Ch. 2 on linear time-invariant systems, and Ch. 3 on Fourier series representation each develop the continuous-time and discrete-time concepts in parallel.
    • Ch. 9 on the Laplace Transform and Ch. 10 on the Z-transform deal with the two domains separately, but often draw parallels between results in the two domains.
  • Introduces some of the important uses of the basic methods that are developed — e.g., filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback.
  • NEW—Material on Fourier analysis has been reorganized significantly to provide an easier path for the reader to master and appreciate the importance of this topic. Now represented in four chapters, each of which is far more streamlined and focused, introducing a smaller and more cohesive set of topics.
  • NEW—Frequency-domain filtering is introduced very early in the development to provide a central and concrete illustration of why this topic is important and to provide some intuition with a minimal amount of mathematical preliminaries.
  • NEW—Relocates coverage of Sampling before Communication. * Allows for discussion of important forms of communication, namely those involving discrete or digital signals, in which sampling concepts are intimately involved.
  • NEWChapter-end Problems
  • They provide a better balance between exercises developing basic skills and understanding ones that pursue more advanced problem-solving skills. The new edition organizes chapter-end problems into four types of sections which makes it easier for the reader to locate the problems that will best serve their purposes; and provides two types of basic problems, ones with answers (but not solutions); and ones with solutions to provide immediate feedback, while attempting to master the material.
    The four types of chapter-end problems are—
    • Basic Problems with Answers.
    • Basic Problems.
    • Advanced Problems.
    • Extension Problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, for a reason. 29 April 2013
By Lia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book explains with detail and clarity the essentials of signal processing theory, and of understanding LTI systems. Plenty of exercises and examples. This book is a classic for a reason, I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book 13 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book because there's everything I need to study Signals and Systems. CLear explanations, lots of exercises, some of them also with solution. There's a bunch of example too and I love them because they make me understand the importance of what I'm studying!

3.0 out of 5 stars Many errors 23 Dec 2012

This book has many errors which difficult the learning process. It should be corrected or at least an errata should be provided.
