Introduction 1 1. Periodicity of the Discrete-Time Fourier Transform 5. First-Order Systems 9. While such courses are frequently found in electrical engineering curricula, the concepts and techniques that form the core of the subject are of fundamental importance in all engineering disciplines. Our treatment of the subject of signals and systems in this second edition maintains the same general philosophy as in the first edition but with significant rewriting, restructuring, and additions.
These changes are designed to help both the instructor in presenting the subject material and the student in mastering it. In the preface to the first edition we stated that our overall approach to signals and systems had been guided by the continuing developments in technologies for signal and system design and implementation, which made it increasingly important for a student to have equal familiarity with techniques suitable for analyzing and synthesizing both continuous-time and discrete-time systems.
As we write the preface to this second edition, that observation and guiding principle are even more true than before. Thus, while students studying signals and systems should certainly have a solid foundation in disciplines based on the laws of physics, they must also have a firm grounding in the use of computers for the analysis of phenomena and the implementation of systems and algorithms. For these reasons, signals and systems courses that bring discrete-time and continuous-time concepts together in a unified way play an increasingly important role in the education of engineering students and in their preparation for current and future developments in their chosen fields.
It is with these goals in mind that we have structured this book to develop in parallel the methods of analysis for continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems. This approach also offers a distinct and extremely iin. Specifically, we are able to draw on the similarities between continuous- and discrete-time methods in order to share insights and intuition developed in each domain.
In organizing the material both originally and now in the second edition, we have also considered it essential to introduce the student to some of the important uses of the basic methods that are developed in the book. Not only does this provide the student with an appreciation for the range of applications of the techniques being learned and for directions for further study, but it also helps to deepen understanding of the subject.
To achieve this goal we include introductory treatments on the subjects of filtering, commuxvii xviii Preface nications, sampling, discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, and feedback. In fact, in one of the major changes in this second edition, we have introduced the concept of frequency-domain filtering very early in our treatment of Fourier analysis in order to provide both motivation for and insight into this very important topic.
In addition, we have again included an up-to-date bibliography at the end of the book in order to assist the student who is interested in pursuing additional and more advanced studies of the methods and applications of signal and system analysis. The organization of the book reflects our conviction that full mastery of a subject of this nature cannot be accomplished without a significant amount of practice in using and applying the tools that are developed.
Consequently, in the second edition we have significantly increased the number of worked examples within each chapter. We have also enhanced one of the key assets of the first edition, namely the end-of-chapter homework problems. As in the first edition, we have included a substantial number of problems, totaling more than in number. A majority of the problems included here are new and thus provide additional flexibility for the instructor in preparing homework assignments. In addition, in order to enhance the utility of the problems for both the student and the instructor we have made a number of other changes to the organization and presentation of the problems.
In particular, we have organized the problems in each chapter under several specific headings, each of which spans the material ip the entire chapter but with a different objective.
The first two sections of problems in each chapter emphasize the mechanics of using the basic concepts and methods presented in the chapter.
For the first of these two sections, which has the heading Basic Problems with Answers, we have also provided answers but not solutions at the end of the book.
These answers provide a simple and immediate way for the student to check his or her understanding of the material. The problems in this first section are generally appropriate for inclusion in homework sets. Also, in order to give the instructor additional flexibility in assigning homework problems, we have provided a second section of Basic Problems for which answers have not been included. A third section of problems in each chapter, organized under the heading of Advanced Problems, is oriented toward exploring and elaborating upon the foundations and practical implications of the material in the text.
These problems often involve mathematical derivations and more sophisticated use of the concepts and methods presented in the chapter. The overall variety and quantity of problems in each chapter will hopefully provide students with the means to develop their understanding of the material and instructors with considerable flexibility in putting together homework sets that are tailored to the specific needs of their students. A solutions manual is also available to instructors through the publisher.
Students using this book are assumed to have a basic background in calculus as well as some experience in manipulating complex numbers and some exposure to differential Preface XIX equations. With this background, the book is self-contained. In particular, no prior experience with system analysis, convolution, Fourier analysis, or Laplace and z-transforms is assumed. Prior to learning the subject of signals and systems most students will have had a course such as basic circuit theory for electrical engineers or fundamentals of dynamics for mechanical engineers.
Such subjects touch on some of the basic ideas that are developed more fully in this text. This background can clearly be of great value to students in providing additional perspective as they proceed through the book The Foreword, which follows this preface, is written to offer the reader motivation and perspective for the subject of signals and systems in general and our treatment of it in particular.
We begin Chapter 1 by introducing some of the elementary ideas related to the mathematical representation of signals and systems. In particular we discuss transformations such as time shifts and scaling of the independent variable -of a signal. We also introduce some of the most important and basic continuous-time and discrete-time signals, namely real and complex exponentials and the continuous-time and discrete-time unit step and unit impulse.
Chapter 1 also introduces block diagram representations of interconnections of systems and discusses several basic system properties such as causality, linearity and time-invariance. In Chapter 2 we build on these last two properties, together with the sifting property of unit impulses to develop the convolution -sum representation for discrete-time linear, time-invariant LTI systems and the convolution integral representation for continuous-time LTI systems.
In this treatment we use the intuition gained from our development of the discrete-time case as an aid in deriving and understanding its continuous-time counterpart. We then turn to a discussion of causal, LTI systems characterized by linear constant-coefficient differential and difference equations. In this introduc, tory discussion we review the basic ideas involved in solving linear differential equations to which most students will have had some previous exposure and we also provide a discussion of analogous methods for linear difference equations.
However, the primary focus of our development in Chapter 2 is not on methods of solution, since more convenient approaches are developed later using transform methods. Instead, in this first look, our intent is to provide the student with some appreciation for these extremely important classes of systems, which will be encountered often in subsequent chapters.
Finally, Chapter 2 coneludes with a brief discussion of singularity functions-steps, impulses, doublets, and so forth-in the context of their role in the description and analysis of continuous-time LTI systems. In particular, we stress the interpretation of these signals in terms of how they are defined under convolution- that is, in terms of the responses of LTI systems to these idealized signals. In particular, as we indicated previously, we have introduced the concept of frequency-domain filtering at a much earlier point in the development in order to provide motivation for and a concrete application of the Fourier methods being developed.
As in the first edition, we begin the discussions in Chapter 3 by emphasizing and illustrating the two fundamental reasons for the important role Fourier analysis plays in the study of signals and systems in both continuous and discrete time: 1 extremely broad classes of signals can be represented as weighted sums or integrals of complex exponentials; and 2 the response of an LTI system to a complex exponential input is the same exponential multiplied by a complex- XX Preface number characteristic of the system.
However, in contrast to the first edition, the focus of attention in Chapter 3 is on Fourier series representations for periodic signals in both continuous time and discrete time. In this way we not only introduce and examine many of the properties of Fourier. In particular, taking advantage of the fact that complex exponentials are eigenfunctions of LTI systems, we introduce the frequency response of an LTI system and use it to discuss the concept of frequency-selective filtering, to introduce ideal filters, and to give several examples of nonideal filters described by differential and difference equations.
In this way, with a minimum of mathematical preliminaries, we provide the student with a deeper appreciation for what a Fourier representation means and why it is such a useful construct.
In both chapters we derive the Fourier transform representation of an aperiodic signal as the limit of the Fourier series for a signal whose period becomes arbitrarily large.
This perspective emphasizes the close relationship between Fourier series and transforms, which we develop further in subsequent sections and which allows us to transfer the intuition developed for Fourier series in Chapter 3 to the more general context of Fourier transforms.
In both chapters we have included a discussion of the many important properties of Fourier transforms, with special emphasis placed on the convolution and multiplication properties. In particular, the convolution property allows us to take a second look at the topic of frequency-selective filtering, while the multiplication property serves as the starting point for our treatment of sampling and modulation in!
Finally, in the last sections in Chapters 4 and 5 we use transform methods to determine the frequency responses ofLTI systems described by differential and difference equations and to provide several examples illustrating how Fourier transforms can be used to compute the responses for such systems.
To supplement these discussions and later treatments of Laplace and z-transforms we have again included an Appendix at the end of the book that contains a description of the method of partial fraction expansion. Our treatment of Fourier analysis in these two chapters is characteristic of the parallel treatment we have developed. Specifically, in our discussion in Chapter 5, we are able to build on much of the insight developed in Chapter 4 for the continuous-time case, and toward the end of Chapter 5 we emphasize the complete duality in continuous-time and discrete-time Fourier representations.
In addition, we bring the special nature of each domain into sharper focus by contrasting the differences between continuous- and discretetime Fourier analysis. As those familiar with the first edition will note, the lengths and scopes of Chapters 4 and 5 in the second edition are considerably smaller than their first edition counterparts.
This is due not only to the fact that Fourier series are now dealt with in a separate chapter but also to our moving several topics into Chapter 6.
The result, we believe, has several significant benefits. First, the presentation in three shorter chapters of the basic concepts and results of Fourier analysis, together with the introduction of the concept of frequencyselective filtering, should help the student in organizing his or her understanding of this material and in developing some intuition about the frequency domain and appreciation for its potential applications.
Then, with Chapters as a foundation, we can engage in "Preface xxi a more detailed look at a number of important topics and applications. In Chapter 6 we take a deeper look at both the time- and frequency-domain characteristics of LTI systems. For example, we introduce magnitude-phase and Bode plot representations for frequency responses and discuss the effect of frequency response phase on the time domain characteristics of the output of an LTI system.
In addition, we examine the time- and frequencydomain behavior of ideal and nonideal filters and the tradeoffs between these that must be addressed in practice. We also take a careful look at first- and second-order systems and their roles as basic building blocks for more complex system synthesis and analysis in both continuous and discrete time. Finally, we discuss several other more complex examples of filters in both continuous and discrete time.
These examples together with the numerous other aspects of filtering explored in the problems at the end of the chapter provide the student with some appreciation for the richness and flavor of this important subject. While each of the topics in Chapter 6 was present in the first edition, we believe that by reorganizing and collecting them in a separate chapter following the basic development of Fourier analysis, we have both simplified the introduction of this important topic in Chapters and presented in Chapter 6 a considerably more cohesive picture of timeand frequency-domain issues.
In response to suggestions and preferences expressed by many users of the first edition we have modified notation in the discussion of Fourier transforms to be more consistent with notation most typically used for continuous-time and discrete-time Fourier transforms.
Specifically, beginning with Chapter 3 we now denote the continuous-time Fourier transform as X jw and the discrete-time Fourier transform as X ejw. As with all options with notation, there is not a unique best choice for the notation for Fourier transforms. However, it is our feeling, and that of many of our colleagues, that the notation used in this edition represents the preferable choice.
Our treatment of sampling in Chapter 7 is concerned primarily with the sampling theorem and its implications. However, to place this subject in perspective we begin by discussing the general concepts of representing a continuous-time signal in terms of its samples and the reconstruction of signals using interpolation.
After using frequency-domain methods to derive the sampling theorem, we consider both the frequency and time domains to provide intuition concerning the phenomenon of aliasing resulting from undersampling. One of the very important uses of sampling 'is in the discrete-time processing of continuous-time signals, a topic that we explore at some length in this chapter. Following this, we tum to the sampling of discrete-time signals.
The basic result underlying discretetime sampling is developed in a manner that parallels that used in continuous time, and the applications of this result to problems of decimation and interpolation are described. Again a variety of other applications, in both continuous and discrete time, are addressed in the problems. Once again the reader acquainted with our first edition will note a change, in this case involving the reversal in the order of the presentation of sampling and communications.
We have chosen to place sampling before communications in the second edition both because we can call on simple intuition to motivate and describe the processes of sampling and reconstruction from samples and also because this order of presentation then allows us in Chapter 8 to talk more easily about forms of communication systems that are closely related to sampling or rely fundamentally on using a sampled version of the signal to be transmitted.
