The goal Introduce students to the basics of modeling continuous- and discrete-time signals and characterization of continuous- and discrete-time signals. Understanding the basic tools for analyzing signals and systems in time, frequency and complex domain. Enable students to understand and use Fourier, Zed and Laplace transformation, and to perform computer analysis of signals and systems.
The outcome Upon passing the exam, students will have the basic skills to analyze and classify measured experimental data, to carry out basic experiments on systems, and to use basic computer programs for processing obtained data.

Contents of lectures Classification of signals and systems. Properties of systems. Fourier series. Fourier transformation. Bode diagrams. Laplace transform. Transfer function, stability and causality of LTI continuous and discrete systems. Zed transformation. Sampling theorem. Discrete Fourier transformation.
Contents of exercises During the course, students are required to implement three practical tasks independently using MATLAB (continuous calculation of convolution of discrete signals, Fourier series approximation of periodic signals, calculation of the frequency response of a continuous system).
