Computer Explorations in Signals and Systems Using MATLAB, 2/e
John R. Buck, Michael M. Daniel, Andrew C. Singer
For undergraduate courses on Signals and Linear Systems.
This book contains a comprehensive set of computer exercises of varying levels of difficulty covering the fundamentals of signals and systems. The exercises require the reader to compare answers they compute in MATLAB® with results and predictions made based on their understanding of the material. The book is compatible with any introductory course or text on signals and systems.
