Prerequisites:  

 Learning objectives: 

To learn and understand basic theory of signals and linear systems with
continuous and discrete time. To introduce to random signals. The
emphasis of the course is on spectral analysis and linear filtering  2
basic building blocks of modern communication systems.  Description: 

Continuous and discrete time signals and systems. Spectral analysis in
continuous time  Fourier series and Fourier transform. Systems with
continuous time. Sampling and reconstruction. Discretetime signals and
their frequency analysis: Discrete Fourier series and Discretetime
Fourier transform. Discrete systems. Twodimensional signals and
systems. Random signals.  Knowledge and skills required for the course: 

basic maths and statistics  Subject specific learning outcomes and competences: 

Students will learn and understand basis of description and
analysis of discrete and continuoustime signals and systems. They will
also obtain practical skills in analysis and filtering in MATLAB.  Generic learning outcomes and competences: 

Students will deepen their knowledge in mathematics and statistics and
apply it on real problems of signal processing. During the course, they
will get acquainted with math and visualizationSW Matlab.  Syllabus of lectures: 

 Introduction, motivation, organization of the course. Examples of
signal processing systems. Basic classification of signals 
continuous/discrete time, periodic/nonperiodic. Transformation of
time.
 Continuous and discrete time periodic signals: sinusoids and
complex exponentials. Overview of basic notions in complex numbers.
Discrete and continuous time systems. Linear, time invariant systms
(LTI). Representation of signals as series of pulses, convolution.
Describing systems using differential and difference equations.
 Continuous time signals and their frequency analysis:
periodic  Fourier series, coefficients. Nonperiodic  Fourier
transform, spectral function. Spectra of typical signals. Signal energy
 Parseval's theorem.
 Continuoustime systems  Laplace transform, transfer
function, frequency response, stability. Example of a simple analog
circuit.
 Sampling and reconstruction  ideal sampling, aliasing,
sampling theorem. Spectrum of sampled signal, ideal reconstruction.
Normalized time and frequency. Quantization.
 Discretetime signals and their frequency analysis  Discrete
Fourier series, Discretetime Fourier transform. Circular convolution,
fast convolution.
 Discrete Fourier transform (DFT) and what it really
computes. Fast Fourier transform.
 Discrete systems  ztransform, finite and infinite impulse
response systems (FIR and IIR), transfer function, frequency response,
stability. Example of a digital filter: MATLAB and C.
 Discrete systems cont'd: design of simple digital filters,
sampling of frequency response, windowing. Links between
continuoustime and discretetime systems.
 Twodimensional (2D) signals and systems: space frequency,
spectral analysis (2DFourier transform), filtering using a mask.
Example  JPEG.
 Random signals  random variable, realization, distribution
function, probability density function (PDF). Stationarity and
ergodicity. Parameters of a random signal: mean, etc. Estimation 
ensemble and temporal.
 Random signals cont'd: correlation function, power spectral density (PSD). Processing of random signals by LTI systems.
 Summary of basic notions, systematic organization of signal processing knowledge. Examples.
