About

Overview

This book thoroughly integrates the use of the MATLAB® computing environment into the standard sequence of courses taken by electrical engineering majors. Use of this text makes it possible to focus on the problems being solved rather than on the programming necessary to obtain a solution. The authors utilize a computer-biased approach in which computer solutions and theory are viewed as mutually reinforcing rather than as an either/or proposition. Additionally, they adhere to the axiom that one learns by doing rather than by listening - this text features more than 100 examples, 200 exercises, and 250 MATLAB® scripts that directly support the authors' flexible treatment of discrete and continuous time.

Features and Benefits

  • Completely updated to MATLAB® V5, with supporting Web site.
  • "Retrospectives" are provided after Chapters 4, 6, 9, and 11, which integrate the material by pausing and reconsidering the interrelationships of the material that has gone before.
  • Scripts provided on the book's Web site (part of the BookWare Companion Resource Center) include answers to problems, solved examples, chapter figures plotted with MATLAB®, and plots used as problem statements.
  • Can be used as a core text or as a MATLAB® supplement to a primary textbook.

Author Bio

Robert D. Strum

Professor Robert D. Strum was Professor Emeritus in electrical and computer engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School. A veteran of World War II, Professor Strum later taught at Rose Polytechnic University for ten years. In 1956, he began a master's program at Stanford University and taught at U.S. Postgraduate School in Monterey, California for 33 years. He was also a Senior Fulbright Fellow. He conducted early research into computer assisted instruction, which led to many years of studies and publications. Professor Strum passed away in November 2008.
