151-0575-01L | Signals and Systems | 4 credits | 2V + 2U | R. D'Andrea | |

Abstract | Signals arise in most engineering applications. They contain information about the behavior of physical systems. Systems respond to signals and produce other signals. In this course, we explore how signals can be represented and manipulated, and their effects on systems. We further explore how we can discover basic system properties by exciting a system with various types of signals. | ||||

Objective | Master the basics of signals and systems. Apply this knowledge to problems in the homework assignments and programming exercise. | ||||

Content | Discrete-time signals and systems. Fourier- and z-Transforms. Frequency domain characterization of signals and systems. System identification. Time series analysis. Filter design. | ||||

Lecture notes | Lecture notes available on course website. | ||||
