MATLAB/Octave Scripts to Accompany

Signals & Systems: Theory and Applications”

The MATLAB/Octave scripts below were written to mimic the Labview simulation modules that were developed to accompany the textbook “Signals & Systems: Theory and Applications” by Fawwaz Ulaby and Andrew Yagle. This text and the corresponding Labview modules are available for free download from I plan to use the textbook and found the Labview modules to be very educational. We primarily use MATLAB/Octave as a simulation tool, hence the effort to mimic the Labview modules. Modules for Chapter 10 are in development. Modules have been tested under Octave 4.4.0 and MATLAB R2018a.
