This unit introduces the concepts of signal processing including transformations between continuous and discrete signals, time and frequency domains using Fourier series and Fourier transforms, and the characterisation of linear systems via the Laplace transform. Statistical methods, random variables, probability theory and applications are to be covered.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Apply MATLAB for the solution of numerical problems in linear algebra, statistics, probability theory, sampling and quantisation. They will be able to interpret and utilise the important probability distribution functions, and apply appropriate statistical methodology; and

2. Utilise and apply sinusoids and exponentials as requisite and fundamental building blocks in the description of analog circuits and continuous systems, and in the representation of signals in the frequency domain. They will be able to interpret and evaluate the continuous and/or discrete sampling processes and apply strategies to avoid the problems of aliasing.
