This course presents key mathematical techniques used to analyze continuous and discrete signals and to design systems which produce or manipulate signals. The techniques have wide application in industry to areas as diverse as computer vision, wireless communications and robotics. Specific applications to basic systems such as filters, mechanical vibration and feedback control systems are discussed in class. Lab activities and assignments include the use of tools such as Matlab to reinforce the concepts.
