Mathematical Methods in Electrical Engineering
In this volume, the author covers the mathematical methods appropriate to both linear-systems theory and signal processing. The text deals with a number of topics usually found in introductory linear-systems courses, such as complex numbers and Laplace transforms, and addresses additional topics such as complex variable theory and Fourier series and transforms. Although the discussion is mathematically self-contained, it assumes that the reader has a firm background in calculus and differential equations. Each chapter contains a number of worked examples plus exercises designed to allow the student to put concepts into practice. The author writes in a mathematically elegant yet relaxed and readable style, and provides interesting historical notes along the way. Undergraduate students of electrical engineering, applied mathematics, and related disciplines - and their teachers - will welcome this book.
