Concepts in Systems and Signalsby John D. Sherrick
Synopses & Reviews
This innovative book for technology students presents both continuous and discrete domains under one cover. It reviews the foundations of continuous-time systems and introduces the concepts and analysis tools associated with signal spectra, with emphasis on periodic signals and the Discrete Fourier Transform. Topics include:
New to this edition are sections on the topics of spectral estimation, convolution, and correlation. A chapter has been added to cover applications of the Laplace and z transforms; the impulse invariance approach to converting from continuous-time to discrete-time systems is discussed. The book also contains an introduction to and lessons in MATLAB®.
This book provides a complete overview of the foundations of continuous-time systems, and introduces the “new circuit theory” of discrete-time systems. It looks at the concepts and analysis tools associated with signal spectra—focusing on periodic signals and the Discrete Fourier Transform, making readers aware of the capabilities of MATLAB. Topics include analysis techniques, frequency response, standard filters, spectral analysis, discrete-time signals and systems, IRR and FIR filter designs, and sampling strategies. For those involved in electrical, computer, and telecommunications engineering.
