This book is the second edition of a text designed for undergraduate coursesin signals and systems. The book develops the method of analysis for continuous-timesignals and systems in parallel with the method of analysis for discrete-timesignals and systems. This approach highlights the similarities and differences,and features introductory treatments of the application of these basicmethods in areas such as filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-timeprocessing of continuous-times signals, and feedback. Relatively self-contained,the text assumes no prior experience with system analysis, convolution,Fourier analysis, or Laplace and z-transforms. A companion book, ComputerExplorations in Signals and Systems Using MATLAB, contains MATLAB exercisesfor each topic in this text.
