Probabilistic Methods of Signal and System Analysis – G. Cooper, C. McGillem – 3rd Edition


Probabilistic of and , 3/e stresses the engineering applications of probability theory, presenting the material at a level and in a manner ideally suited to engineering students at the junior or senior level. It is also useful as a review for graduate students and practicing .

Thoroughly revised and updated, this third edition incorporates increased use of the in both text examples and selected problems. It utilizes MATLAB as a tool and includes new sections relating to Bernoulli trials, correlation of data sets, smoothing of data, computation of correlation functions and spectral densities, and of systems. All examples can be run using the Version of MATLAB. Almost all of the examples and many of the problems have been modified or changed entirely, and a number of new problems have been added. A separate appendix discusses and illustrates the application of computers to .
