Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of mathematics (ordinary difference equations), physics (basic mechanical and electrical systems) and algebra.
Target skills and knowledge: Time and Frequency domain analysis of continuous and discrete time signals and linear systems.
Examination methods: Take home assignments (computer simulations), written test. Oral test upon request.
Assessment criteria: Knowledge of the tools for the analysis of linear systems and signals. Analytical ability in the use of these tools for the solution of basic analysis problems.
Course unit contents: Continuous time signals:
Time domain: symmetries, periodicity, norms, energy; elementary signals, dirac delta, convolution.
Frequency domain: Fourier series and transform, support and band, Laplace transfrom.

Continuous time systems:
Basic definition, causality, stability, linearity, time invariance. LTI systms, impulse response, frequency responce, transfer function. Differential equations, free and forced responce.

Discrete time signals
Time domain: symmetries, periodicity, norms, energy; elementary signals, convolution.
Frequency domain: Fourier and Zeta transform. DFT and FFT.


Discrete time systems. Basic definitions. Filters, impulse response, frequency response, transfer function. Difference equations.

Sample data systems. Sampling: time domain and frequency domain. Interpolation, Shannon sampling theorem.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Theoretical classes and problem solving sessions. Computer Simulations (in the lab).
Additional notes about suggested reading: Lecture notes will be the main reference.
