Continuous- and discrete-time system theory. Block diagrams, feedback, and stability theory. Continuous-time stability, differential equations, Laplace-transforms, transfer functions. Discrete-time stability, difference equations, Z-transforms. Transfer functions and frequency response. Sampling of continuous systems and an introduction to control and filter design. Hands-on projects to illustrate and integrate the various continuous- and discrete-time concepts and tools.
Signals and systems concepts arise in a wide variety of science and engineering fields. The ability to apply linear systems theory is essential to the disciplines of electrical and computer engineering and is the foundation of many upper level courses.
