This introductory level book gives comprehensive treatment to signals and linear systems. It emphasizes the physical appreciation of concepts rather than the mere mathematical manipulation of symbols. Mathematics is used to enhance physical and intuitive understanding, instead of to prove axiomatic theory. This book is divided into five parts and allows for the flexible teaching of discrete-time and continuous-time systems. Wherever possible, theoretical results are interpreted heuristically and are supported by examples and more
