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.
Master the basics of signals and systems. Apply this knowledge to problems in the homework assignments and programming exercise.
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 available on course website.
Performance assessment information (valid until the course unit is held again)
The performance assessment is only offered in the session after the course unit. Repetition only possible after re-enrolling.
Mode of examination
written 150 minutes
Additional information on mode of examination
The final grade is based on the session exam, an optional in-class quiz, and optional programming exercise. The grade of the quiz may contribute 20% to the final grade, but only if it helps improving the final grade. The grade of the programming exercise may contribute 20% to the final grade, but only if it helps improving the final grade.
One A4 sheet of paper (2 pages, handwritten or computer typed)
