Subject description


  • registration to the 3. year study

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • Introduction: Basic definitions, short history of the signal processing theory, position of the signal processing theory in electrotechnical and other sciences.
  • Signals classification: Signals with finite energy and finite average power, periodical a-periodical, deterministic and random signals.
  • Signals representations: Use of the signals representations, types of representations and representations quality measures, examples of basic functions sequences.
  • Frequency analysis: Fourier series and Fourier transform
  • Random signals: Approaches to the random signal processing, stationary random process, correlation and covariance functions, sampling and time averages, ergodicity
  • Signals correlation and convolution: Correlation and convolution definitions and properties for different types of signals.
  • Applications with correlation and convolution transformations: similarity measures, random signals spectrum evaluation, convolution and linear stationary systems, detection of periodic components in combination of signals.
  • Sampling and quantization: Purpose of the sampling and quantization, sampling theorem, representation of sampling and reconstruction, types of quantization, quantization error signal and his properties, examples for quantization.
  • Digital signal processing: Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT).
