Suited for junior-level electrical engineering curricula, this book stressesthe systems approach while providing studnets with the tools and techniquesfor understanding and analyzing both continuous-time and discrete-timelinear systems. The book assumes the background of mathematics throughdifferential equations and the usual introductory circuit theory courseor courses. Many examples based on traditional circuit theory are includedin the book to illustrate the various systems analysis techniques thatare introduced. The first seven chapters deal with continuous-time linearsystems in both the time domain and the frequency domain. The remainderof the book deals with discrete-time systems, including z-transform analysistechniques, digital filter analysis and synthesis, and the discrete Fouriertransform and fast Fourier transform algorithms. MATLAB is used for solvingmany of the in-chapter worked examples, exercises, and problems.
