The subject of Discrete Signals and Systems is broad and deserves a single book devoted to it. The objective of this textbook is to present all the required material that an undergraduate student will need to master this subject matter and the use of MATLAB.
This book is primarily intended for electrical and computer engineering students, and especially for use by juniors or seniors in these undergraduate engineering disciplines. It can also be very useful to practicing engineers. It is detailed, broad, based on mathematical basic principles, focused, and it also contains many solved problems using analytical tools as well as MATLAB.
The book is ideal for a one-semester course in the area of discrete linear systems or digital signal processing, where the instructor can cover all chapters with ease. Numerous examples are presented within each chapter to illustrate each concept when and where it is presented. Most of the worked-out examples are first solved analytically and then solved using MATLAB in a clear and understandable fashion.
Taan S. ElAli, Ph.D, has been a full professor of electrical engineering since 2002. Earning the rare honor of senior membership in the IEEE, he has worked full time for about 17 years at several academic institutions nationally and internationally in the areas of curriculum development, accreditation, teaching, research, and leadership. A former Fulbright scholar, Dr. ElAli obtained his BS in electrical engineering in 1987 from The Ohio State University, Columbus, United States, and his MS in systems engineering in 1989 from Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, United States. He earned another MS in applied mathematics and a Ph.D in electrical engineering-with a specialization in systems, controls, and signal processing-from the University of Dayton in 1991 and 1993, respectively. Among his many awards and accomplishments, Dr. ElAli has discovered a new approach to dynamic system identification. His extensive research and interest in revolutionizing the engineering education has led to the publishing of his Innovations in Engineering Education book.
