Expected Student Outcomes:

A student who has successfully completed this course should be able to:

  1. Classify systems based on properties of their input-output relationship.
  2. Analyze and synthesize signals using the definitions and properties of the Fourier series and Fourier transform.
  3. Apply convolution, Fourier series, and Fourier transform methods to determine the output of linear time-invariant systems.
  4. Analyze simple modulation systems and filters, and understand their applications.
  5. Define a random experiment, its outcomes, its events, and the allowable probability distributions for it.
  6. Apply independence of events, conditional probability, and Bayes rule.
  7. Calculate the probability of an event for a random variable given its cumulative distribution function or probability density function.
  8. Determine the mean, variance, and standard deviation of a random variable.
  9. Determine the autocorrelation and power spectral density of a random signal.
  10. Characterize LTI system response to random signal.
