Editorial Reviews

Textbook introduces the techniques of linear circuit analysis, primarily for electrical engineering majors. Requires math background through differential and integral calculus and an understanding of the techniques involved in the solution of differential equations with constant coefficients; basic knowledge of matrices and computer programming would be helpful.

From The Critics
This textbook introduces the fundamental concepts involved in the design and analysis of electric circuits, and provides real-world examples that demonstrate the usefulness of the material. Advanced topics include the Laplace transform and Fourier analysis techniques. The seventh edition moves two-port networks from an appendix to a full chapter, and adds a chapter on semiconductor electronics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
