Text: "Fundamentals of Signals and Systems Using Matlab" by E.W. Kamen and B.S. Heck

Objective: Develop an understanding of

• frequency-domain techniques for analyzing continuous-time signals and
• the Laplace transform for representing and analyzing continuous-time systems.
These topics of study will be the basis for later courses in control theory and digital signal processing.

Topics: The following chapters and topics in the text will be covered:

• Chpt. 1: Fundamental Concepts of Signals and Systems
• Chpt. 2.1-2.2: Systems Defined by Differential Equations
• Chpt. 3.3-3.4: Convolution
• Chpt. 4: Fourier Series and Transforms
• Chpt. 5: Frequency-Domain Analysis of Systems
• Chpt. 7: Laplace Tranforms and Transfer Functions
• Chpt. 8.1-8.3: System Analysis using Transfer Functions
• Chpt. 9.1-9.2: Introduction to Controls

Homework: Homework will be assigned, collected, and graded on a weekly basis. You are encouraged to work with other students as long as the written work turned in is your own.
