Signals and Systems – Simon S. Haykin, Barry Van Veen – 2nd Edition


The study of is basic to the discipline of at all levels. It is an extraordinarily rich subject with diverse applications. In fact, for a proper appreciation and application of other areas of , such as processing, systems and control systems, a comprehensive understanding of signals and systems is essential.

This presents a modern treatment of signals and systems at an introductory level. As such, its use is geared towards undergraduate engineering courses and is designed to prepare in advanced courses in communication systems, control systems and digital
