Reviewer Comments

From Todd DeLong, University of Virginia:

“Rarely do I ever feel this way about a textbook, let alone say it—but this book is fantastic!  It’s just the kind of book I’ve been seeking for teaching signals & systems.  It’s the perfect blend of theory and practice, building upon the knowledge and skills the students already possess (like circuit theory, differential equations, and so forth).  At the same time, it introduces and develops new knowledge and skills that are crucial to the students’ continued success in the signal processing field.  And, once again NTSP has provided abundant supplemental resources, like the .m and .mat files for the exercises and problems, so that students can investigate the relationship between their ‘by hand’ analytical solutions and the real-world, numerical solutions.  This will be the kind of book that students will return to again and again (in their continuing education, and as engineers working in industry), and is the perfect complement to Circuits by Ulaby and Maharbiz.”

 

From Essam Marouf, San Jose State University:

“I’m impressed. Not only the fundamentals are thoroughly covered, but also the presentation is uncluttered, with beautiful supporting graphics used, and many interesting applications discussed.”

 

From Stephane Lafortune, University of Michigan:

“I really like this book and commend the authors for investing so much effort and producing such a nice manuscript. I think their book is much better than the textbook we currently use and its distinctive features will make it very attractive for many schools. I am in remarkable agreement with the authors about the selection of topics included in the book. The authors have a clear and lucid writing style that will be appreciated by the students. Based on my examination, the technical content is highly accurate. The graphics are beautiful and contribute greatly to the text. I like the use of color. The authors always emphasize the ‘why’ when treating a topic. There is also considerable focus on the ‘how,’ with lots of examples with detailed calculations. The students will like that a lot.”
