Book Description

August 13, 1999 0534371728 978-0534371722 1
This book thoroughly integrates the use of the MATLAB computing environment into the standard sequence of courses taken by electrical engineering majors. Use of this text makes it possible to focus on the problems being solved rather than on the programming necessary to obtain a solution. The authors utilize a computer-biased approach in which computer solutions and theory are viewed as mutually reinforcing rather than as an either/or proposition. Additionally, they adhere to the axiom that one learns by doing rather than by listening - this text features more than 100 examples, 200 exercises, and 250 MATLAB scripts that directly support the authors' flexible treatment of discrete and continuous time.

About the Author

Professor Robert D. Strum was Professor Emeritus in electrical and computer engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School. A veteran of World War II, Professor Strum later taught at Rose Polytechnic University for ten years. In 1956, he began a master's program at Stanford University and taught at U.S. Postgraduate School in Monterey, California for 33 years. He was also a Senior Fulbright Fellow. He conducted early research into computer assisted instruction, which led to many years of studies and publications. Professor Strum passed away in November 2008.

Dr. Donald E. Kirk is Dean Emeritus of the College of Engineering of San Jose State University.

Format:Hardcover
I was hunting for a single book which covers the area of signals and systems, communication theory, design (transforms related to these topics) using MATLAB (I have a student version 5.0). Every topic is well illustrated with MATLAB programs along with the associated terms, definitions and the mathematical details along with figures for proper visualization. This book an excellent supplement to standard textbooks in these areas.The presentation is crisp and clear. I experienced the "joy of understanding" while using this text with the software. GRAB A COPY AND UNDERSTAND THE WORLD OF TRANSFORMS!

It covers linear control processes well.
Best it gives MatLab code for plotting responses and solved
problems.
It has a 6th order filter called Chebyshev digital filter
that has a very near flat top as a band pass in the Bode plot!
These methods aren't well covered in my other books
and will be of use in studying nonlinear systems as well.
