Welcome to the LPSA (Linear Physical Systems Analysis) website!
This site was designed to accompany a course in linear systems taught at the Department of Engineering at Swarthmore College, but should be useful to anybody interested in these systems. The layout of the site is somewhat different than many, and consists of two complementary parts. The first part forms a somewhat traditional text-based approach (see the tab listed "Web Pages," above), the second part is comprised of a "topic map" that links the topics in a visual format that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the material presented (see the "Topic Map" tab).
To continue with the text please visit the "Web Pages" tab and the "Topic Map" tab. The "Web Pages" tab describes some of the features of the web pages. The "Topic Map" tab describes the topic map and gives some hints for exploring it.
