The goal Objective of the course is to inform the students about the methods for spectral signal analysis and parameter estimation. Also, the objective is to prepare the students these problems to be able to solve using programming language MATLAB.
The outcome Learning outcomes of the course is for the students to gain the following skills: to apply different methods for power spectral density estimation, to recognize the form of the process, to make appropriate spectral analysis, to make a choice of the model order.
Contents of lectures Stochastic processes. Classical methods for spectral analysis (periodogram, averaged periodoram, Blackman-Tukey method). Modern methods for spectral estimation. Modeling of the processes (AR, MA and ARMA models). Spectral estimation of AR models: Autocorrelation, Covariant, Modified Covariant, Burg's method. Selection of model order.
Contents of exercises Students have obligation to solve independently three practical problems using the programming language MATLAB.
