The notions of signals and systems arise in a rich variety of contexts, such as telecommunications, multimedia and electronics. Signal Theory is the analytical framework that helps us describing and analysing signals and systems, irrespective of the context where we find them. This course is an introduction to Signal Theory. We will explore the basic notions of signals and systems, time and frequency domain, analogue and digital signal processing and sampling. This course will prepare students for more advanced courses, such as Probability Theory and Stochastic Statistics, Networks and Protocols, Control Theory, Ad-hoc and Broadband Wireless and IoT Information Processing Technology.
25% of the grade is allocated to coursework.
