About

Overview

Davis systematically builds students' analytical and problem-solving skills through a carefully graduated presentation of concepts, the use of detailed, copiously illustrated examples, and teaching approaches that present circuit analysis topics in a unified context. Chapters 1-3 introduce basic concepts of circuit analysis more deliberately and in greater detail than traditional texts, while establishing a solid mathematical foundation for the analysis and solution of problems. In Chapters 6-10, Davis presents a method of time domain analysis that unifies the three major divisions of circuit analysis (DC, AC, and transient analysis) based on the use of differential operators. In addition, from Chapter 1 onward, Davis presents circuit theories in the context of three fundamental quantities - time, voltage, and current - while emphasizing a practical, "applications-oriented" study of active circuits. As a result, this book provides students with a demonstrable mastery of problem-solving skills and an integrated knowledge of circuit analysis topics that effectively supports their later studies in signals and systems, electronics, and control.

Features and Benefits

  • Basic concepts of DC circuit analysis are presented more deliberately and in greater detail (in Chapters 1-3) than in traditional texts, laying the groundwork for student comprehension of more advanced topics, and of how circuit analysis relates to subsequent courses.
  • This text uses differential operators to unify the treatment of the three major divisions of introductory circuit analysis.
  • Bound-in CD-ROM contains: Web-based self-test software that tests students' knowledge of each chapter, providing explanations for correct and incorrect answers; The Evaluation Version of MicroSim PSpice® for Windows-based computers; The Evaluation Version of the Student Edition of Electronics Workbench® for Windows-based computers, which will load a set of files keyed to the text and allow students to work their own problems; and MATLAB® and Mathcad® files that enable students to work and extend scientific examples in the text.
