Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:
1. Mathematically analyse continuous time signals
2. Mathematically analyse and practically implement linear filters
3. Implement and use (fast) Fourier transforms for 1D and 2D signal processing
4. Do frequency-domain analysis on signals via Fourier transforms
Omschrijving This course is an introduction to (digital) signal processing and discrete linear systems theory.
The module consists of lectures and tutorials/practicals.

The topics that are covered in the course include:
- Continuous-time and discrete-time signals;
- Periodic signals: Fourier series;
- Sampling
- Linear time-invariant (LTI) systems/filters
- Convolution, convolution theorem and Fourier transform;
- time domain and frequency domain analysis
- the Z transform,
- FFT algorithm (and its derivation)

During the tutorials, the theory will be applied by making small programs. These programs will be written in C, so the student is expected to master this programming language.
