Transforms and Applications Primer for Engineers with Examples and MATLABŪ is required reading for engineering and science students, professionals, and anyone working on problems involving transforms. This invaluable primer contains the most essential integral transforms that both practicing engineers and students need to understand. It provides a large number of examples to explain the use of transforms in different areas, including circuit analysis, differential equations, signals and systems, and mechanical vibrations.

Includes an appendix with suggestions and explanations to help you optimize your use of MATLAB

Laplace and Fourier transforms are by far the most widely used and most useful of all integral transforms, so they are given a more extensive treatment in this book, compared to other texts that include them. Offering numerous MATLAB functions created by the author, this comprehensive book contains several appendices to complement the main subjects. Perhaps the most important feature is the extensive tables of transforms, which are provided to supplement the learning process. This book presents advanced material in a format that makes it easier to understand, further enhancing its immense value as a teaching tool for engineers and research scientists in academia and industry, as well as students in science and engineering.

About the author (2010)

Alexander D. Poularikas received his Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, and became a professor at the University of Rhode Island, Kingston. He became the chairman of the engineering department at the University of Denver, Colorado, and then became the chairman of the electrical and computer engineering department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Dr. Poularikas has authored seven books and has edited two. He has served as the editor-in-chief of the Signal Processing series (1993–1997) with Artech House, and is now the edito- in-chief of the Electrical Engineering and Applied Signal Processing series as well as the Engineering and Science Primer series (1998 to present) with Taylor & Francis. He was a Fulbright scholar, is a lifelong senior member of the IEEE, and is a member of Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Nu, and Sigma Pi. In 1990 and in 1996, he received the Outstanding Educators Award of the IEEE, Huntsville Section. He is now a professor emeritus at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
