This course provides the foundations for the study in Communications, Signal Processing, Control, etc.
Through this course, students will learn
1. the concepts of signals and systems,
2. how to analyze linear time-invariant systems by using time-domain and frequency-domain approaches,
3. how to design linear time-invariant systems by using time-domain and frequency-domain approaches,
4. how to convert a continuous-time signal to a discrete-time signal, and vice versa, and
5. how to use MATLAB to perform digital signal processing.

Grading Policies for Homework and Quiz
1. Re-grade requests must be filed in writing within one week after the graded quiz has been returned to students.
2. Each sub-problem will be graded according to the following scale: 100%, 60%, 20%, and 0%. So, you had better have a complete solution than an incomplete solution.
1. Students may take exams earlier than the original schedule if he/she requests at least one week earlier.
2. Excused class absence on an exam day may lead to a make-up exam for the absentee.
3. Re-grade requests must be filed in writing within one week after the graded exam has been returned to students.
4. Each sub-problem will be graded according to the following scale: 100%, 60%, 20%, and 0%. So, you had better have a complete solution than an incomplete solution.
Your final grade in A+-F will be based on the total standardized score you earned. In particular, to get an A+, you should demonstrate that
- you have intensively and thoroughly read the reference books reserved in the library, and/or
- you can extend, generalize, expand, and/or specialize the knowledge you are taught in this course to what you are not taught in this course.
Use of Personal Response System (PRS) or Socrative Smartphone App.
You will use the PRS system or equivalent such as Socrative system through this course. Once the PRS transmitter is distributed in the beginning of the semester, it's your responsibility to bring it at every meeting with fully charged batteries and return it at the end of the semester.
Policy on Academic Dishonesty
If the instructor suspects academic dishonesty, the instructor will notify the student(s) and follow the procedure to report to the school without any exception. Students have the responsibility to be knowledgeable about the consequences of dishonesty.
See, recently published report cover page and academic honesty guide.
