Signals & Systems 2ND Editionby Alan Oppenheim
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Publisher Comments:This comprehensive exploration of signals and systems develops continuous time and discretetime concepts/methods in parallel — highlighting the similarities and differences — and features introductory treatments of the applications of these basic methods in such areas as filtering, communication, sampling, discretetime processing of continuoustime signals, and feedback. Relatively selfcontained, the book assumes no prior experience with system analysis, convolution, Fourier analysis, or Laplace and ztransforms.
FEATURES:
The four types of chapterend problems are— Book News Annotation:New edition of a text intended primarily for the undergraduate courses on the subject which are frequently found in electrical engineering curriculabut the concepts and techniques it covers are also of fundamental importance in other engineering disciplines. The book is structured to develop in parallel the methods of analysis for continuoustime and discretetime signals and systems, thus allowing exploration of their similarities and differences. Discussion of applications is emphasized, and numerous worked examples are included.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) Synopsis: This authoritative book, highly regarded for its intellectual quality and contributions provides a solid foundation and lifelong reference for anyone studying the most important methods of modern signal and system analysis. The major changes of the revision are reorganization of chapter material and the addition of a much wider range of difficulties.
