Signals and Systems using MATLAB


  • Luis Chaparro, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Pittsburgh, PA, USA

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.
