About the Authors
  • This textbook presents an introduction to the fundamental concepts of continuous-time (CT) and discrete-time (DT) signals and systems, treating them separately in a pedagogical and self-contained manner. Emphasis is on the basic signal processing principles, with underlying concepts illustrated using practical examples from signal processing, multimedia communications, and bioinformatics. Following introductory chapters, the text is separated into two parts. Part I covers the theories, techniques, and applications of CT signals and systems and Part II discusses these topics for DT, so that the two can be taught independently or together. Accompanying the book is a CD-ROM containing MATLAB code, audio clips, images, interactive programs, and signal animations. With over 300 illustrations, 285 worked examples and 385 homework problems, this textbook is an ideal introduction to the subject for undergraduates in electrical and computer engineering. Further resources, including solutions for instructors, are available online at

    • The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing MATLAB code for examples in the text, and allows the reader to perform experiments with real (audio clips, images, and video) signals in the MATLAB environment
    • Contains over 300 illustrations with small figures in the margins, 285 worked examples and 385 homework problems, clearly segregated from the main text - with solutions available to instructors online
    • Treats continuous-time and discrete-time, signals and systems in a self-contained manner so that the book can be used for a one-semester or two-semester course
    • Covers cutting edge applications in the fields of audio processing, image processing and bioinformatics
    • Covers filter design in the continuous time and discrete time domains

    'The book is truly outstanding. I'm passing it around to my colleagues to have them consider it for their courses. I loved all the problems worked out in great detail, how well written it is, and the very comprehensive nature of the presentation. It is a great book.' Michael F. Insana, Professor of Bioengineering and ECE, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Great text - Well written, easy to follow, with plenty of examples and problems. I strongly recommend it to all instructors of Signals and Systems.
