Eligibility:

In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

Calculus in one variable, complex numbers and complex exponential functions. Electric circuits.

Aim

The course should provide fundamental knowledge about linear systems and how they can be used to describe physical phenomenons. Different mathematical tools which can be used to calculate the relationship between input- and output signals in linear systems will be presented.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • identify and give examples of different signal types, such as periodic signals, absolutely summable/integrable signals, finite energy signals and band-limited signals.
  • identify important system properties, such as linearity, shift-invariance, causality and BIBO-stability, in examples.
  • select the appropriate transforms (Fourier series, Continuous and Discrete time Fourier transform, Laplace transform, Discrete Fourier transform and z-transform) for a given problem.
  • compute the transforms of commonly used signals in the course.
  • apply transform techniques to solve the LTI-equation y = h * x, both in continuous and discrete time, when two of the factors are known.
  • identify the Nyquist rate of a band-limited signal.
  • employ the Sampling Theorem to reconstruct band-limited signals from sampled data.
  • interpret plots of the DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) of a sampled signal.

Content

Course content:
  • Continuous and discrete time signals. Signal models.
