ELEN310 Continuous and Discrete Signals and Systems (4 semester hours)

This course is presents signal and system description and characterization in the time and frequency domains for linear time-invariant (LTIV) systems. Time domain topics include differential and difference equations; convolution; and Fourier Series. Frequency domain material will incorporate Fourier transforms; Laplace transforms; z-transforms; and system description via transfer functions. The sampling theorem will be addressed. State-space representation of LTIV systems in either the time or frequency domains will be introduced. The course will show students how to characterize and analyze systems in either time or frequency and transform between domains. Students will be shown how to determine and apply a correct technique to either analyze an existing system or design a system to meet specifications. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details.(Prerequisites: ELEN305 and MATH210)
