9780071475785: Signals & Systems Demystified

The fast and easy way to learn signals and systems

Get a working knowledge of signal processing and systems--even if you don't have formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. Signals and Systems Demystified offers an effective, illuminating, and entertaining way to learn this essential electrical engineering subject.

First, you'll learn methods used to calculate energy and power in signals. Next, you'll study signals in the frequency domain using Fourier analysis. Other topics covered include amplitude, frequency, and phase modulation, spectral analysis, convolution, the Laplace transform, and the z-transform. Packed with hundreds of sample equations and explained solutions, and featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will teach you the fundamentals of signals and systems in no time at all.

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Signals and Systems Demystified is your shortcut to mastering this complex subject.

This hands-on, self-teaching text offers:

  • An easy way to understand signal processing and systems
  • Hundreds of worked examples with solutions
  • A quiz at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses
  • A final exam at the end of the book
  • No unnecessary technical jargon
  • A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work!

About the Author:

David McMahon is a physicist and researcher at Sandia National Laboratories. He is the author of Linear Algebra Demystified, Quantum Mechanics Demystified, and Relativity Demystified.

From the Inside Flap:

This is a book that has several uses. For undergraduate students taking
"Signals," many of them are struggling through this abstract and difficult
course. When the author took this difficult course in college, the average
score on the mid-term was 36 out of 100! Students found themselves lost
among the difficult material, but there was no Demystified style book
available to them. This book is the perfect classroom supplement with a
straightforward presentation to help them pass the course. It will clarify
topics presented in their textbooks, while the large sample of solved
problems will help them complete homework assignments and prepare for
exams.
There are a large number of expensive textbooks for this course on the
market, but there are surprisingly few problem solving books or texts aimed
at self-study. The common-sense and practical approach used in the
Demystified series should make this book very popular.
