"Multiplication by z exp n0 introduces a pole of order no at z = 0 if n0 > 0. In this case the ROC cannot include z = 0, even if Rx does include 0, unless X(z) has a zero of at least order n0 at z = 0 that cancels out all the new poles. If n0 < 0, then multiplication by z exp -no introduces n0 poles at infinity. If these poles are not cancelled by zeros at infinity in X(z), then the ROC of z exp -n0 X(z) cannot include abs(z) = infinity."
I agree with the other reviews too which stated that the examples jump steps and do little to explain the concepts. I even found an error with one (Haykin, it's your example on page 471). In my opinion, if you don't have much time, and want a book that doesn't require a lot of re-reading, keep looking.
Gets 2 stars for covering all the material.
I found it very hard to understand. The examples are either too easy, or too difficult -- there isn't a sweet middle-ground. The "drill problems" are pretty much the same story.
I failed to gather the intuition behind the subject matter. Math can be great, but not what's presented in this book. I've ordered Oppenheim's book based on recommendations from friends. Once I read that, I'll write a review about that book.
EE can be beautiful. I couldn't find that beauty through this book -- and that's a shame.
The book does cover all necessary topics to have a remarkable understanding of signals and systems topics it''s compiled as if it was to be read by a robot. I found myself rereading a lot, googling lots of math, and struggling to pass tests. The book needs more exxplanations and key concepts in bold.
If you have to buy this book for class I recommend you skip to the end of each chapter read the summary and watch YouTube vids on the material from each chapter, you'll save time and headache.
If anyone's wondering whether this book is the same as the "2005 Interactive Solutions Edition", the answer, as far as I can tell, is yes. I compared mine with a 2005 version and the only difference I noticed is that the 2005 edition has indications where an "Interactive Solution" is available.
