Course content
Definition of signals, theory of signals and transfer systems Fourier analysis of deterministic signals and impulses and their practical executions Fourier analysis in a domain with continuous time and in discrete systems, algorithm of fast Fourier transform Properties of Fourier transform, convolution and Fourier spectrum Laplace and Hilbert transform Correlation of deterministic signals Properties of linear and nonlinear transfer systems Characteristic functions and quantities of stochastic processes and their realizations, errors in their estimations Power spectra of stochastic processes and their realizations Transmission of stochastic signal via linear systems Effect of noise on signals Digital signals and their transmission Digital transfer systems, their error rate and modeling

Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The aim is to inform students with the main theoretical aspects of transfer and processing of signals. Attention is paid to understanding of Fourier transform as a tool for description of signals in frequency domain.
Students will have overview about transfer aspects of signals and ways of their proccessing. Students will be familiarized with Fourier transform, properties of linear transfer systems, noises, and digital signals.
