Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Developed from Professor Kamen's best-selling text Introduction to Signals and Systems, this forward-looking new text presents accessible yet comprehensive analytical treatment of signals and systems and also incorporates a strong emphasis on solving problems and exploring concepts using MATLAB. A MATLAB tutorial is provided on a disk which is available for student/instructor use, and all examples in the text are developed in terms of the Student Edition of MATLAB®. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

With a strong emphasis on solving problems and exploring concepts, this guidebook delivers an accessible yet comprehensive introduction to continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems.Discusses how to download signals (time series) from the Web and analyze the data. Includes details on common types of digital filters, such as moving average and exponential moving average filters, with applications to filtering data downloaded from the Web. Addresses signal analysis using the DFT to extract the dominant cyclic components of a signal. Addresses the issue of noise, which often arises in engineering, business, finance, and other fields.For those interested in learning more about signals and systems.

More About the Author

Edward W. Kamen was born in Mansfield, Ohio on October 2, 1945. He obtained the degree of Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1967, and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. minor in Mathematics from Stanford University in 1971. From 1971 to 1981 he was on the faculty at Georgia Tech, where he carried out basic research on the study of infinite-dimensional systems and linear time-varying systems. In 1981, Dr. Kamen moved to the University of Florida where his research centered on two-dimensional systems and adaptive control. In 1986, he became Professor and Chairman of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. While at Pitt, part of his research focused on the development of the SME filter approach to multiple target tracking. In 1991, Dr. Kamen returned to Georgia Tech to assume the Julian T. Hightower endowed professorship. While at Tech, he was an Associate Director of the Manufacturing Research Center and the founding director of the Center for Board Assembly Research (CBAR), which dealt with both education and research involving printed circuit board assembly. In 2002, Dr. Kamen retired from Georgia Tech (where he is now Professor Emeritus) in order to focus on developing techniques for trend analysis of time series data in real time, including financial data such as stock prices. Dr. Kamen is author/co-author of over 100 journal and conference papers and six textbooks in the areas of signals, systems, controls, and manufacturing. For a listing of his major research publications, go to the website http://www.edwardkamen.com. Dr. Kamen was General Chairman of the 38th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control and he is a Fellow of the IEEE. During his 31 years as a university professor, he was the Ph.D. advisor of 28 students.

Format: Hardcover
The information in this book is difficult enough to learn, and the way it is presented here compounds the problem.

The Information and examples are not explained thoroughly or completely (to compressed) can be very over whelming.

There are many practice problems at the end of each chapter (great) there is one problem ...there are no ANSWERS???. I was not able to find a solutions manual. I even emailed the author (I got no reply). Very difficult to know if your solving the Practice Problems correctly if you don't have any solved practice prolems let alone any answers. I did manage to pick up some of what the author was trying to say, but i had to read each chapter numerous times. The website referred to in the book has a few solved example problems for each chapter, but many are hand written and could not be interpreted. In all honesty I was using this book in conjunction with a self study coarse and did not have the benefit of an instructor.I would not reccomend using this book alone,when trying to grasp this subject.

Format: Hardcover
The fact that this book is written in plain language is great, it makes a lot of concepts a lot easier to digest. However, the material here is extremely patchy. As a student learning this for the first time, I've found that this textbook isn't exactly the most effective due to the holes between content areas. The author seems to go into detail about things that seem unimportant, while he/she skims over the real meat of the subject. And what's worse is the fact that there are no worked out examples. If there were more worked examples, concepts might click amongst the patchy conceptual explanations. There is MATLAB scattered throughout the text, which I've found useful at times, but it too is not explained well-enough. All in all, this is not a text that I recommend to those in their introductory signal processing courses, rather, I recommend this text to those who have already taken introductory signal processing classes and are in need of a review text. As a review for those already in the know, this text seems great.

Format: Hardcover
This book would be excellent for someone who is already familiar with signals but is not good for the student who is learning the topic. Very few examples and no student solutions manual makes it a hard sell. For those after theory only.

I used this at VCU because my professor had attended GA Tech which is written by the professors there. It has no solutions to any "practice" problems. It doesnt go into enough detail and assumes that you already know this stuff. What's the point then? I couldn't recommend this to anyone. Beware for those who are purchasing it.

Awful for a control system course (which is what it is intended for and used for at Georgia Tech). The only good control/systems sections were on root locus and Bode design. The first half of the book is on refresher material from DSP (Laplace transforms, etc.). Try Gene Franklin's Feedback Design book for a much more sophisticated approach (with examples!) on actual control systems.

The book is short and mostly clear. The biggest problem with it is no odd or even answers in the back. Without this it makes it nearly impossible to learn since you do not know whether your answers are right or not. Also, it does not include an index of fourier to real function graphs with their fourier phases. These graphs make learning transforms infinitely easier. It also has few examples that help clarify the material. On the plus side, if this is a review or second time looking at this material, it is a great reference/review book.

As a first time learner of Signals and Systems, this is a very poor book. Examples can be confusing, and the web portion of the book is dated. Hopefully you don't get this book asigned...

For MATLAB, I really recommend Bassam Mahafza's texts instead, although his is more heavy in radar application of MATLAB than this one. However this one has well-constructed examples make this a good one to have and hold on to after class is over. I required this for a Wireless Computer Engineering major. Really like the book and will not trade it in after the class ends.
