Practical Signals Theory with MATLAB Applications
The 1st edition of Tervo's Practical Signals Theory with MATLAB Applications offers an organized presentation around applications that introduces the actual behavior of specific signals and uses them to motivate presentation of mathematical concepts. The text sequences the presentation of the major transforms by their complexity to help visualize phenomena from an equation to develop intuition and learn to analyze signals by inspection. Furthermore the text provides examples and problems designed to use MATLAB, making presentation more in line with modern engineering practice.
Key features include: actual signal behavior presented first, from which mathematical theory is derived (most competitors do the opposite); an integrated CT/DT coverage; MATLAB integrated throughout; extensive use of innovative applications in examples and problems; and an emphasis on developing student intuition via analysis by inspection.
