Signals and Systems Using MATLAB, Third Edition, features a pedagogically rich and accessible approach to what can commonly be a mathematically dry subject. Historical notes and common mistakes combined with applications in controls, communications and signal processing help students understand and appreciate the usefulness of the techniques described in the text. This new edition features more end-of-chapter problems, new content on two-dimensional signal processing, and discussions on the state-of-the-art in signal processing.

Key Features

  • Introduces both continuous and discrete systems early, then studies each (separately) in-depth
  • Contains an extensive set of worked examples and homework assignments, with applications for controls, communications, and signal processing
  • Begins with a review on all the background math necessary to study the subject
  • Includes MATLAB® applications in every chapter


Second and third year electrical or computer engineering students enrolled in a signals and systems course
