Editorial Reviews

A text for advanced undergraduates in electrical engineering, introducing widely used techniques of signal and system analysis. Includes separate treatment of continuous-time and discrete-time cases, and comprehensive treatment of Fourier analysis. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
This introductory textbook on continuous and discrete-time signals and systems is intended for the junior or senior in electrical engineering. Topics include orthogonal representation, Fourier series, the Laplace and Z-transforms, practical reconstruction filters, sampling-rate conversion, A/D and D/A converters, and techniques of analysis and of analog and digital filter design. The authors emphasize linear time-invariant systems. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
