Digital Signal Processing - ELEC244

This unit explores the processing of discrete-time signals by discrete-time systems including signal and system representations in both the time domain and the frequency domain. Specific topics covered include the characterization of discrete-time sequences, periodic sequences, characterization of discrete-time systems, the discrete-time convolution operator, the unit pulse response, the unit step response, linear difference equations and their solutions, linearity of systems, stability of systems, the frequency response of linear time-invariant discrete-time systems, the transfer function, the z transform, the frequency domain approach to the analysis of signals passing through linear time-invariant discrete-time systems, the initial value theorem, the final value theorem, causal systems, discrete-time filtering of signals, poles and zeros of the transfer function, the frequency response, the magnitude response, the phase response, the discrete-time Fourier transform, and the discrete Fourier transform and its applications.
