This book introduces a new
set of orthogonal hybrid functions (HF) which approximates time functions in a
piecewise linear manner which is very suitable for practical applications.
The book presents an
analysis of different systems namely, time-invariant system, time-varying
system, multi-delay systems---both homogeneous and non-homogeneous type- and
the solutions are obtained in the form of discrete samples. The book also
investigates system identification problems for many of the above systems. The
book is spread over 15 chapters and contains 180 black and white figures, 18
colour figures, 85 tables and 56 illustrative examples. MATLAB codes for many such
examples are included at the end of the book.
