Based on a series of lectures developed by the author for a course he has taught at MIT for over 20 years, the book gives students a solid, practical understanding of signal and systems principles, issues, and tools. This book features a wealth of examples, problems, and laboratory exercises to illustrate how the theory in the lectures is applied to actual engineering science.

As one of the standard undergraduate texts in signals and linear systems theory, this manual is geared toward an advanced undergraduate student with a strong background in calculus and a previous introductory course in differential equations. The author uses a circuit analysis framework to introduce several key ideas such as state-space descriptions of differential and difference equations, Laplace and z-transforms, continuous-time and discrete-time Fourier transforms, and sampling, filtering, and modulation schemes. Through enthusiastic prose and numerous worked-out examples, Siebert conveys his intuitive feel for the meaning behind the mathematics as well as a deep familiarity with electrical engineering applications of the theory. The book is fast-paced and challenging, but not overly terse. This text is perfect for a student and an excellent reference (as well as an enjoyable read) for practicing engineers and academics.About the Author:
William Siebert is Ford Professor of Engineering at MIT.
