This book treats both continuous-time and discrete-time signals and systems, whereas this course deals almost exclusively with continuous-time signals. Students may generally ignore sections in the assigned reading on discrete-time systems. However, some of the explanations given in the continuous-time sections are given as analogies to or limits of the discrete-time cases, so students will have some familiarity with the discrete-time notation.
