Signals & Systems
Prentice-Hall International, 1997 - Signal theory (Telecommunication) - 957 pages
This comprehensive exploration of signals and systems develops continuous-time and discrete-time concepts/methods in parallel, highlighting the similarities and differences, and features introductory treatments of the applications of these basic methods in such areas as filtering, communication, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback. Relatively self-contained, the text assumes no prior experience with system analysis, convolution, Fourier analysis, or Laplace and z-transforms. This edition includes a companion book of MATLAB-based computer exercises for each topic in the text. Material on Fourier analysis has been reorganized significantly to provide an easier path for the student to master and appreciate the importance of this topic. Frequency-domain filtering is now introduced very early in the development to provide a central and concrete illustration of why this topic is important and to provide some intuition with a minimal amount of mathematical preliminaries.

The best book on Signals and Systems ever written. The language is simple and the mathematical level is not too high which makes this book suitable for self study. There numerous problems, arranged according to difficulty level. In all, the book is a perfect package for anyone interested in learning signals and systems.
A standard text in the field. And to my knowledge every electrical engineer reads this book at least once in his graduation. This book is not friendly to people who prefer studying stuff themselves, rather this book is designed for a good classroom study. Believe me on first reading this would feel like a bit dry & terse book but once you have all of the signals & system theory in mind the book starts making a special place in your mind. This text is designed in way to plant a lot of curiosity into your mind. Other books for the subject do exist & may be better but this book is your gateway to the vast world of signals & systems. A bit of advice for studying this subject, never try to corelate things first. Get everything as a separate entity & when you think you got all of the subject then try linking the stuff. Also I would recommend anyone to have a strong background in basics of analysis before diving into this ocean
