Synopses & Reviews
This revised edition is written for an advanced undergraduate circuit analysis course in an applied engineering or an upper-division engineering technology curriculum. This book can also serve as a reference for engineers and technologists.
The first four chapters are devoted to time-domain considerations. Chapter 5 through 8 present transform-domain considerations. Chapter 9 deals with Fourier analysis and the concept of spectrum. Both the Fourier series and the Fourier transform are covered. Chapter 10 provides an introduction to discrete-time systems.
The Electronics Workbench (EWB) examples found in the last section of most chapters have been modified to work with Multisim, the newest version of EWB. The text also contains a number of MATLAB examples. As in the case of Multisim, coverage is optional and is not a prerequisite to other topics within the text. Appendix E provides a brief introduction to MATLAB to familiarize readers with the program the program.
A free Instructor's Manual (ISBN0-13-060250-7) is available to instructors.
This book presents the fundamentals of transient circuit and system analysis with an emphasis on the LaPlace transform and pole-zero approach for analyzing and interpreting problems. Chapter topics cover introductory considerations, waveform analysis, circuit parameters, the basic time-domain circuit, LaPlace transform, circuit analysis by LaPlace transforms, system considerations, the sinusoidal steady state, Fourier analysis, and an introduction to discrete-time systems. For those individuals in engineering technology or applied engineering programs.
