The third edition of Signals and Systems prepares students for real-world engineering applications. It is concise, focused, and practical. The text introduces basic concepts in signals and systems and their associated mathematical and computational tools. It also stresses the most important concepts in signal analysis (frequency spectra) and system analysis (stability and frequency responses) and uses them throughout, including the study of seismometers and accelerometers. Signals and Systems, 3/e, introduces every term carefully and develops every topic logically. It distinguishes amplitudes and magnitudes, as well as lumped and distributed systems. It presents engineering concepts as early as possible and discusses transform theory only as needed. Also, the text employs transfer functions and state-space equations only in the contexts where they are most efficient. Transfer functions are used exclusively in qualitative analysis and design, and state-space equations are used exclusively in computer computation and op-amp circuit implementation. Thus, the students' time is focused on learning only what can be immediately used. Including an author commentary on the best way to approach the text, Signals and Systems, 3/e, is ideal for sophomore- and junior-level undergraduate courses in systems and signals. It assumes a background in general physics (including simple circuit analysis), simple matrix operations, and basic calculus.

A fully updated textbook on linear systems theory Linear systems theory is the cornerstone of control theory and a well-established discipline that focuses on linear differential equations from the perspective of control and estimation. This updated second edition of Linear Systems Theory covers the subject's key topics in a unique lecture-style format, making the book easy to use for instructors and students. João Hespanha looks at system representation, stability, controllability and state feedback, observability and state estimation, and realization theory. He provides the background for advanced modern control design techniques and feedback linearization and examines advanced foundational topics, such as multivariable poles and zeros and LQG/LQR. The textbook presents only the most essential mathematical derivations and places comments, discussion, and terminology in sidebars so that readers can follow the core material easily and without distraction. Annotated proofs with sidebars explain the techniques of proof construction, including contradiction, contraposition, cycles of implications to prove equivalence, and the difference between necessity and sufficiency. Annotated theoretical developments also use sidebars to discuss relevant commands available in MATLAB, allowing students to understand these tools. This second edition contains a large number of new practice exercises with solutions. Based on typical problems, these exercises guide students to succinct and precise answers, helping to clarify issues and consolidate knowledge. The book's balanced chapters can each be covered in approximately two hours of lecture time, simplifying course planning and student review. Easy-to-use textbook in unique lecture-style format Sidebars explain topics in further detail Annotated proofs and discussions of MATLAB commands Balanced chapters can each be taught in two hours of course lecture New practice exercises with solutions included

Linear Systems and Signals, Third Edition, has been refined and streamlined to deliver unparalleled coverage and clarity. It emphasizes a physical appreciation of concepts through heuristic reasoning and the use of metaphors, analogies, and creative explanations. The text uses mathematics not only to prove axiomatic theory, but also to enhance physical and intuitive understanding. Hundreds of fully worked examples provide a hands-on, practical grounding of concepts and theory. Its thorough content, practical approach, and structural adaptability make Linear Systems and Signals, Third Edition, the ideal text for undergraduates.

The book blends readability and accessibility common to undergraduate control systems texts with the mathematical rigor necessary to form a solid theoretical foundation. Appendices cover linear algebra and provide a Matlab overivew and files. The reviewers pointed out that this is an ambitious project but one that will pay off because of the lack of good up-to-date textbooks in the area.

An extensive revision of the author's highly successful text, this third edition of Linear System Theory and Design has been made more accessible to students from all related backgrounds. After introducing the fundamental properties of linear systems, the text discusses design using state equations and transfer functions. In state-space design, Lyapunov equations are used extensively to design state feedback and state estimators. In the discussion of transfer-function design, pole placement, model matching, and their applications in tracking and disturbance rejection are covered. Both one-and two-degree-of-freedom configurations are used. All designs can be accomplished by solving sets of linear algebraic equations. The two main objectives of the text are to: 1. use simple and efficient methods to develop results and design procedures 2. enable students to employ the results to carry out design All results in this new edition are developed for numerical computation and illustrated using MATLAB, with an emphasis on the ideas behind the computation and interpretation of results. This book develops all theorems and results in a logical way so that readers can gain an intuitive understanding of the theorems. This revised edition begins with the time-invariant case and extends through the time-varying case. It also starts with single-input single-output design and extends to multi-input multi-output design. Striking a balance between theory and applications, Linear System Theory and Design, 3/e, is ideal for use in advanced undergraduate/first-year graduate courses in linear systems and multivariable system design in electrical, mechanical, chemical, and aeronautical engineering departments. It assumes a working knowledge of linear algebra and the Laplace transform and an elementary knowledge of differential equations.

Design of Feedback Control Systems is written specifically for electrical and mechanical engineering students in advanced undergraduate control systems courses.Now in its fourth edition, this tutorial-style textbook has been completely updated to include the use of modern analytical software, especially MATLAB. It thoroughly discusses classical control theory and state variable control theory, as well as advanced and digital control topics. Each topic is preceded by analytical considerations that provide a well-organized parallel treatment of analysis and design. Treating the use of computers as a means rather than as an end, this student-friendly book contains new 'Computer-Aided Learning' sections that demonstrate how MATLAB can be used to verify all figures and tables in the text.Contents: All chapters end with a Summary, References, and Problems. Preface 1. Continuous-Time System Description 2. Continuous-Time System Response 3. Performance Specifications 4. Root Locus Analysis 5. Root Locus Design 6. Frequency Response Analysis 7. Frequency Response Design 8. State Space Analysis 9. State Space Design 10. Advanced State Space Methods 11.

This text presents a comprehensive treatment of signal processing and linear systems suitable for juniors and seniors in electrical engineering. Based on B. P. Lathi's widely used book, Linear Systems and Signals, it features additional applications to communications, controls, and filtering as well as new chapters on analog and digital filters and digital signal processing. Lathi emphasizes the physical appreciation of concepts rather than the mere mathematical manipulation of symbols. Avoiding the tendency to treat engineering as a branch of applied mathematics, he uses mathematics to enhance physical and intuitive understanding of concepts, instead of employing it only to prove axiomatic theory. Theoretical results are supported by carefully chosen examples and analogies, allowing students to intuitively discover meaning for themselves.
