## Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

1. Introduction -- 2. Energy and Power Flow in State-Determined Systems -- 3. Summary of One-Port Primitive Elements -- 4. Formulation of System Models -- 5. State Equation Formulation -- 6. Energy-Transducing System Elements -- 7. Operational Methods for Linear Systems -- 8. System Properties and Solution Techniques -- 9. First- and Second-Order System Response -- 10. General Solution of the Linear State Equations -- 11. Solution of System Response by Numerical Simulation -- 12. The Transfer Function -- 13. Impedance-Based Modeling Methods -- 14. Sinusoidal Frequency Response of Linear Systems -- 15. Frequency Domain Methods -- App. A. Introduction to Matrix Algebra -- App. B. Complex Numbers -- App. C. Partial Fraction Expansion of Rational Functions.

Adopting a linear graph approach, rather than the bond graph or no graph approach, this work features a clear presentation of frequency response. It also develops in detail the construction of lumped-parameter system models from sets of primitive elements.
