Ing Ind - Inf (Mag.)(ord. 270) - MI (263) MUSIC AND ACOUSTIC ENGINEERING
052845 - SIGNALS AND SYSTEMS
This course focuses on the analysis of signals (sound, acoustic pressure, voltage, images, etc.) and the systems that act on them (acoustic resonators and environments, circuits, mechanical devices, etc.). We concentrate on the Fourier Transform and Linear-Time Invariant Systems, providing the fundamental mathematical tools for sampling, manipulating, preserving, and interpreting information signals.
The course is divided in two modules. Module 1 is dedicated to continuous-time (analog) signals and systems. Module 2 focuses on discrete-time (digital) signals and systems.
