Mahmood Nahvi is professor emeritus of electrical engineering at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo, California. He earned B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering, and has more than 55 years of educational, academic, research, and industrial experience in this field. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses on various subjects including electric circuits, electronics, signals and systems, electromagnetics, random signals and noise, digital signal and image processing, and communications and control. Dr. Nahvi's areas of special interest and expertise include network theory, control theory, adaptation and learning in synthetic and living systems, communication and control in living systems, neural networks for pattern recognition and motor control, satellite communication, digital signal and image processing, and engineering education. In the area of engineering education, he has developed computer modules for electric circuits, signals, and systems that improve the teaching and learning of the fundamentals of electrical engineering. Dr. Nahvi is the author of Signals and Systems (McGraw-Hill, 2014). He is also the co-author, with Joseph A. Edminister, of Schaum's Outline of Electric Circuits.

Joseph A. Edminister is professor emeritus of electrical engineering at the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, where he also served as assistant dean and acting dean of engineering. He was a member or the faculty from 1957 until his retirement in 1983. In 1984 he served on the staff of Congressman Dennis Eckart of Ohio on an IEEE Congressional Fellowship. Professor Edminister then joined Cornell University as a patent attorney and later as director of corporate relations for the College of Engineering until his retirement in 1995. He received his B.S.E.E. in 1957, his M.S.E. in 1960, and his J.D. in 1974, all from the University of Akron. Professor Edminister is a registered professional engineer in Ohio, a member of the bar in Ohio, and a registered patent attorney.
