A clear, comprehensive presentation of the theory and applications of signals, systems, and transforms. presents the mathematical backgroung of signals and systems, including the Fourier transform, the Fourier series, the Laplace transform, the discrte-time and discrete Fourier transforms, and the z-transforms. Organization permits great flexibility in course emphasis. MATLAB® examples are integrated throughout the book. The advanced features of the student version of MATLAB are integrated into the examples and problems.
The interactive Web site at
www.ee.washington.edu/class/SST_textbook/textbook.html has numerous animated demonstrations and interactive examples.
More than 350 homework problems and over 150 examples. Answers to selected problems enable students to gain instant feedback of their understanding of new concepts.
Significant Changes in the Fourth Edition
Concepts presented more clearly.
More concise introduction to convolution in Chapter 3.
Expanded presentation of the Discrete Fourier Transform in Chapter 12.
Revised problem sets for most chapters. Problems arranged so sets of problems relating to a common concept are presented together. The answer to at least one problem from each set is provided in an appendix.
Biographical information about selected pioneers in the area of signal and system analysis has been added in appropriate sections of the text.
Begins with continuous-time topics and progresses to discrete-time materials, yet is flexible for courses that treat them in parallel. Emphasizes the difference between models and the physical signals and systems they represent, introducing and covering several continuous- and discrete-time systems, the Fourier series, the Fourier transform for continuous-time signals and systems, the Laplace transform, and state variables for continuous-time systems. The software tool Matlab is integrated in examples and homework problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
