ELEC3600- Signals and Systems

This course introduces students to signals and systems and to linear algebra. Topics include: matrix operations, determinants, vector spaces, linear transformations, orthogonality, eigenvalues, signal operations, classifications of signals and systems, continuous-time LTI system analysis (impulse response, convolution, Laplace transform and its applications), continuous-time signal analysis (Fourier series, Fourier transform and its applications). Prerequisite: MATH2025, Multivariable Calculus. 

Course Objectives

  1. Perform signal operations, identify classifications of signals and systems.
  2. Perform continuous-time LTI system analysis in time and frequency domain including impulse response, Laplace transform and convolution.
  3. Analyze and determine the spectral content of periodic and non-periodic signals by applying Fourier analysis.
  4. Perform matrix operations and analyze properties of matrices including vector spaces, orthogonality, eigenvalues and eigenvectors.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Updated Fall 2017
