Book Description

Designed for a one-semester undergraduate course in continuous linear systems, Continuous Signals and Systems with MATLAB®, Second Edition presents the tools required to design, analyze, and simulate dynamic systems. It thoroughly describes the process of the linearization of nonlinear systems, using MATLAB® to solve most examples and problems. With updates and revisions throughout, this edition focuses more on state-space methods, block diagrams, and complete analog filter design.

New to the Second Edition

•          A chapter on block diagrams that covers various classical and state-space configurations

•          A completely revised chapter that uses MATLAB to illustrate how to design, simulate, and implement analog filters

•          Numerous new examples from a variety of engineering disciplines, with an emphasis on electrical and electromechanical engineering problems

Explaining the subject matter through easy-to-follow mathematical development as well as abundant examples and problems, the text covers signals, types of systems, convolution, differential equations,Fourier series and transform, the Laplace transform, state-space representations, block diagrams, system linearization, and analog filter design. Requiring no prior fluency with MATLAB, it enables students to master both the concepts of continuous linear systems and the use of MATLAB to solve problems.
