Here’s the sure cure for CIRCUIT PARALYSIS!
Need to learn circuit analysis but experiencing some resistance in your brain waves? No stress! Circuit Analysis Demystified will give you the jolt you need to understand this complex subject–without getting your circuits crossed.
In the first part of the book, you’ll learn the fundamentals such as voltage and current theorems, Thevenin and Norton’s theorems, op amp circuits, capacitance and inductance, and phasor analysis of circuits. Then you’ll move on to more advanced topics including Laplace transforms, three-phase circuits, filters, Bode plots, and characterization of circuit stability. Featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will have you in a steady state when it comes to circuit analysis in no time at all.
This fast and easy guide offers:
- Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts
- Sample equations with worked solutions
Coverage of Kirchhoff’s laws, the superposition theorem, Millman’s theorem, and delta-wye transformations
- Quizzes at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning
- A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Circuit Analysis Demystified will transform you into a master of this essential engineering subject.
About the Author

This book introduces the theoretical elements at the basis of various classes of algorithms commonly employed in the physical layer (and, in part, in MAC layer) of wireless communications systems. It focuses on single user systems, so ignoring multiple access techniques. Moreover, emphasis is put on single-input single-output (SISO) systems, although some relevant topics about multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are also illustrated.
- Comprehensive wireless specific guide to algorithmic techniques
- Provides a detailed analysis of channel equalization and channel coding for wireless applications
- Unique conceptual approach focusing in single user systems
- Covers algebraic decoding, modulation techniques, channel coding and channel equalisation
From the Back Cover
An advanced introduction to algorithmic techniques for wireless communications, blending basic principles with advanced concepts and techniques
This reference provides a high-level introduction to the study of algorithmic techniques employed in digital wireless communication systems over fading channels. Its main objective is to develop a theoretical framework that will enable the reader to develop solutions to detection, equalization, channel estimation, error correction coding and coded modulation problems in wireless communications.
This book discusses in detail deterministic and stochastic descriptions of wireless channels, single-carrier and multicarrier digital modulation techniques, optimal signal detection, channel estimation techniques, channel equalization algorithms, classical and modern channel coding schemes, coded modulation techniques, and iterative methods for channel equalization and decoding of channel codes.
Special features include:
- Important results previously scattered over a huge number of publications are now collected in a single volume
- A broad coverage of fundamental topics in wireless communications, taking into consideration both basic and advanced transmission techniques
- An historical perspective on various important research areas in the field of wireless communication techniques
- Highlights trends in various research areas in the field of wireless communications
This edition features worked examples in every chapter that explained how to use the theory presented in the text to solve different kinds of problems. The text uses a vectors-first approach to explain electrostatics, magnetostatics, fields, waves, and applications like transmission lines, waveguide, and antennas. It also provides a balanced presentation of time-varying and statics field, preparing students for employment in today’s industrial and manufacturing sectors.
