# Signals and Systems using MATLAB

## Luis Chaparro Ph.D. University of California Berkeley

3.3 avg rating
( 10 ratings by Goodreads )

This new textbook in signals and systems provides a pedagogically rich approach to what can commonly be a mathematically dry subject. With features like historical notes, highlighted common mistakes, and applications in controls, communications, and signal processing, Chaparro helps students appreciate the usefulness of the techniques described in the book. Each chapter contains a section with MatLab applications.

• Pedagogically rich introduction to signals and systems using historical notes, pointing out "common mistakes", and relating concepts to realistic examples throughout to motivate learning the material
• Introduces both continuous and discrete systems early, then studies each (separately) in more depth later
• Extensive set of worked examples and homework assignments, with applications to controls, communications, and signal processing throughout
• Provides review of all the background math necessary to study the subject
• MatLab applications in every chapter

Review:

Featured Except from Signals and Systems using MATLAB

Although it is hardly possible to keep up with advances in technology, it is reassuring to know that in science and engineering, development and innovation are possible through a solid understanding of basic principles. The theory of signals and systems is one of those fundamentals, and it will be the foundation of much research and development in engineering for years to come. Not only engineers will need to know about signals and systems—to some degree everybody will. The pervasiveness of computers, cell phones, digital recording, and digital communications will require it.

Learning as well as teaching signals and systems is complicated by the combination of mathematical abstraction and concrete engineering applications. Mathematical sophistication and maturity in engineering are needed. Thus, a course in signals and systems needs to be designed to nurture the students’ interest in applications, but also to make them appreciate the significance of the mathematical tools. In writing this textbook, as in teaching this material for many years, the author has found it practical to follow Einstein’s recommendation that “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler,” and Melzak’s [47] dictum that “It is downright sinful to teach the abstract before the concrete.” The aim of this textbook is to serve the students’ needs in learning signals and systems theory as well as to facilitate the teaching of the material for faculty by proposing an approach that the author has found effective in his own teaching.

We consider the use of MATLAB, an essential tool in the practice of engineering, of great significance in the learning process. It not only helps to illustrate the theoretical results but makes students aware of the computational issues that engineers face in implementing them. Some familiarity with MATLAB is beneficial but not required.

From the Back Cover:

Signals and Systems Using MATLAB provides a pedagogically-rich and friendly approach to the subject. It nurtures the readers interest by balancing fundamentals with applications in controls, communications, and signal processing. The use of MATLAB, an essential tool in the practice of engineering, is integrated throughout to enhance the learning process. It not only helps illustrate the theoretical results but makes students aware of the computational issues that engineers face in implementing them.

Key Features:

• Separate treatment of continuous- and discrete-time signals and systems allow for better understanding and flexibility in the teaching of the material.
• Includes current applications in controls, communications, and signal processing.
• Presentation emphasizes connections and relevance of transformations used in the analysis of signals and systems so they are seen as a progression rather than as disconnected methods.
• Student friendlyfeatures throughout the text include highlighted summaries and well-thought out remarks, quotations and footnotes presenting interesting ideas or historical comments, and sidebars that provide additional historical or technical information. Plenty of worked out examples illustrate the theory.
• MATLAB examples in each chapter illustrate topics presented in the text. The MATLAB code is provided so that students can learn by example.
• End-of-chapter problems provide different levels of complexity for students to exercise basic problem-solving skills and to achieve a level of proficiency and mathematical sophistication.
• Available online testing and assessment component helps students assess their knowledge of the topics. Email textbooks@elsevier.com for details.
