Similar to its predecessor, this edition presents a clear, comprehensive introduction to signals and linear systems. The book emphasises physical appreciation of concepts through heuristic reasoning, metaphors, analogies, and creative explanations. Such an approach is different from a purely deductive technique that uses mere mathematical manipulation of symbols and ignores the physical meaning behind various derivations, which deprives a student of the enjoyable experience of logically uncovering the subject matter. Here the author uses mathematics not so much to prove axio-matic theory as to support and enhance physical and intuitive understanding. Wherever possible, theoretical results are interpreted heuristically and are enhanced by carefully chosen examples and analogies. The organization of the text allows for a great deal of flexibility in teaching continuous-time and discrete-time concepts. The natural order of the chapters in the book integrates the two; however, the book can also be tailored to teach these concepts sequentially. Its thorough content, practical approach, and structural adaptability make Linear Systems and Signals 2e, ideal for undergraduate courses in linear systems or signals and systems. Covers new topics such as: Fourier applications to communication systems Bode plots Bandpass systems Convergence of an infinite series Group and phase delay Impulse invariance method of designing analog systems using digital filters Offers MATLAB focus sessions at the end of each chapter Includes more than 200 worked examples and end-of-chapter problems Provides updated and revised illustrations throughout Presents historical background notes to stimulate interest in the field

"Discrete linear systems and digital signal processing have been treated for years in separate publications. ElAli has skillfully combined these two subjects into a single and very useful volume. ... Useful for electrical and computer engineering students and working professionals... a nice addition to the shelves of academic and public libraries. "Summing Up: Highly Recommended." — S.T. Karris, University of California, Berkeley in CHOICE Typically, books on linear systems combine coverage of both discrete and continuous systems all in a single volume. The result is usually a daunting mountain of information that fails to sufficiently explain either subject. With this in mind, Discrete Systems and Digital Signal Processing with MATLAB®, Second Edition responds to the need in engineering for a text that provides complete, focused coverage of discrete linear systems and associated problem solution methods. With its simplified presentation, this book follows a logical development that builds on basic mathematical principles to cover both discrete linear systems and signal processing. The author covers all traditional topics and includes numerous examples that are solved analytically and, when applicable, numerically using the latest version of MATLAB®. In addition to the classical coverage, the author includes complete and stand-alone chapters on IIR and FIR filter design, block diagrams, state-space, and sampling and transformations, as well as a unique chapter on FFT and its many applications. The book also introduces many examples using the MATLAB data acquisition toolbox in different chapters. Ideal either as a textbook for the required course in the electrical and computer engineering curriculum or as an updated refresher for seasoned engineers, this resource offers a wealth of examples, exercises, problems, and author insights.

This textbook offers a fresh approach to digital signal processing (DSP) that combines heuristic reasoning and physical appreciation with sound mathematical methods to illuminate DSP concepts and practices. It uses metaphors, analogies and creative explanations, along with examples and exercises to provide deep and intuitive insights into DSP concepts. Practical DSP requires hybrid systems including both discrete- and continuous-time components. This book follows a holistic approach and presents discrete-time processing as a seamless continuation of continuous-time signals and systems, beginning with a review of continuous-time signals and systems, frequency response, and filtering. The synergistic combination of continuous-time and discrete-time perspectives leads to a deeper appreciation and understanding of DSP concepts and practices. • For upper-level undergraduates • Illustrates concepts with 500 high-quality figures, more than 170 fully worked examples, and hundreds of end-of-chapter problems, more than 150 drill exercises, including complete and detailed solutions • Seamlessly integrates MATLAB throughout the text to enhance learning

Signals and Systems: A Primer with MATLAB® provides clear, interesting, and easy-to-understand coverage of continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems. Each chapter opens with a historical profile or career talk, followed by an introduction that states the chapter objectives and links the chapter to the previous ones. All principles are presented in a lucid, logical, step-by-step approach. As much as possible, the authors avoid wordiness and detail overload that could hide concepts and impede understanding. In recognition of the requirements by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) on integrating computer tools, the use of MATLAB® is encouraged in a student-friendly manner. MATLAB is introduced in Appendix B and applied gradually throughout the book. Each illustrative example is immediately followed by a practice problem along with its answer. Students can follow the example step by step to solve the practice problem without flipping pages or looking at the end of the book for answers. These practice problems test students’ comprehension and reinforce key concepts before moving on to the next section. Toward the end of each chapter, the authors discuss some application aspects of the concepts covered in the chapter. The material covered in the chapter is applied to at least one or two practical problems or devices. This helps students see how the concepts are applied to real-life situations. In addition, thoroughly worked examples are given liberally at the end of every section. These examples give students a solid grasp of the solutions as well as the confidence to solve similar problems themselves. Some of the problems are solved in two or three ways to facilitate a deeper understanding and comparison of different approaches. Ten review questions in the form of multiple-choice objective items are provided at the end of each chapter with answers. The review questions are intended to cover the "little tricks" that the examples and end-of-chapter problems may not cover. They serve as a self-test device and help students determine chapter mastery. Each chapter also ends with a summary of key points and formulas. Designed for a three-hour semester course on signals and systems, Signals and Systems: A Primer with MATLAB® is intended as a textbook for junior-level undergraduate students in electrical and computer engineering. The prerequisites for a course based on this book are knowledge of standard mathematics (including calculus and differential equations) and electric circuit analysis.

The use of digital signal processing is ubiquitous in the field of physiology and biomedical engineering. The application of such mathematical and computational tools requires a formal or explicit understanding of physiology. Formal models and analytical techniques are interlinked in physiology as in any other field. This book takes a unitary approach to physiological systems, beginning with signal measurement and acquisition, followed by signal processing, linear systems modelling, and computer simulations. The signal processing techniques range across filtering, spectral analysis and wavelet analysis. Emphasis is placed on fundamental understanding of the concepts as well as solving numerical problems. Graphs and analogies are used extensively to supplement the mathematics. Detailed models of nerve and muscle at the cellular and systemic levels provide examples for the mathematical methods and computer simulations. Several of the models are sufficiently sophisticated to be of value in understanding real world issues like neuromuscular disease. This second edition features expanded problem sets and a link to extra downloadable material.
