This book provides a concise and clear introduction to signals and systems theory, with emphasis on fundamental analytical and computational techniques. Introduction to Signals and Systems develops continuous-time and discrete-time concepts/methods in separate chapters - highlighting the similarities and differences - and features introductory treatments of the applications of these basic methods in such areas as filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback. This text is written for introductory courses in continuous-time and/or discrete-time signals and systems for Electrical Engineering students. It is also accessible to a broad range of engineering and science students, as well as valuable to practicing engineers seeking an insightful review.

Features and Benefits

  • DT and CT topics are described in parallel chapters. The parallel development brings to light the similarities and the differences between DT and CT. Either CT or DT can be covered first, or they can be covered in parallel, chapter by chapter, or section by section.
  • To accommodate students with different educational backgrounds, the technical depth starts at an elementary level in the first few chapters and increases gradually.
  • Complete Set of PowerPoint Slides availble for download!

What's New

  • The development of the core material is academically sound, concise, and easy to understand. New derivations not found in other texts and a modernized placement of topics helps students to learn faster and appreciate the unity of the overall theory.
