A concise one-semester text that gets students directly into the relevant content needed to master the signals and systems course


In Signals and Systems, Sanjit Mitra addresses the question: What are the core concepts that undergraduate students need to learn in order to successfully continue their studies in the field? Straightforward, easy-to-understand, and engaging, Signals and Systems enables students to focus on essential material by avoiding artificial signals and systems that they will never encounter in their professional careers.


  • "Drill Problems" in every chapter emphasize key ideas
  • End-of-Chapter Problems challenge students and reinforce concepts
  • MATLAB Exercises show students how to use MATLAB as a problem-solving tool
  • Detailed chapter summaries list key equations with equation numbers for easy reference
  • Concepts and tools are explained using mostly first-order and second-order systems

"Signals and Systems is well written and supports student learning in a one-semester course."--Tolga M. Duman, Arizona State University

"This text is an effective exposition of the concepts learned in the signals and systems course. The mathematical derivations are well paced and do not omit too many key steps for the sake of brevity."--John W. Dyer, The University of Oklahoma
