    • Introduction and notation
    • Signals
    • Systems
  • Signals
    • Elementary signals
    • Reaction of linear systems on elementary signals
    • Signal decomposition into elementary signals
  • Spectral representations of deterministic signals
    • Fourier series, Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT)
    • Fourier transform
    • Laplace and z transform
  • Linear systems
    • Reaction on elementary signals
    • Reaction on arbitrary signals
    • Quantities for describing linear systems and their relations
    • Stability of linear systems
    • Rational transfer-functions
  • Modulation
    • Basics
    • Sampling theorem

News

The lecture will be given in presence (Room C-SR-I). We will start with the lecture on Thursday, 14.04.2022. In the first week, there will be no excersise (also in the second week, due to "Karfreitag").

The results of the exam from 18.03.2022 are now online in the QIS system! The exam review will take place on 01.04.2022, more detailed information will follow shortly by mail.
