analysis, a nd design. Although we shall b e dealing with mathematical modeling, our
main concern is w ith analysis a nd design. T he m ajor portion of this book is devoted

a lesser extent, we will also consider t he problem of design or s ynthesishow t o

A s ystem whose o utput is p roportional t o i ts i nput is a n e xample o f a linear
system. B ut l inearity implies more t han this; it also implies a dditivity p roperty,

separately while assuming all t he o ther causes t o b e zero. T he t otal effect is t hen
t he s um o f all t he c omponent effects. T his p roperty m ay b e expressed as follows:
for a linear system, if a cause q a cting alone has a n effect e l, a nd if a nother c ause
C2, also acting alone, has a n effect e2, then, w ith b oth c auses acting on t he s ystem,
