Spring 2018

Thursdays 12:00-2:30 pm

Office Hours: Mon and Fri, 2-3:30 pm, Burchard 411

Email: negar.tavassolian@stevens.edu

Teaching assistant: Anbang Liu, aliu6@stevens.edu

Classroom: Main Campus Babbio 210

Textbook: A.V. Oppenheim, A.S. Willsky, & S.H. Nawab, Signals and Systems, 2nd Ed., Prentice Hall, 1997.

Pre-requisites: Calculus, complex numbers and circuit analysis, (EE 348).

Course Philosophy and Goals:

·      Exposing students to analytical tools used in signal processing, communications and controls (Fourier and Laplace transforms, frequency domain description of linear systems, etc.)

·      Helping students generalize the notions learned in circuit analysis to more abstract linear systems and appreciate the wide applicability of system theory to various aspects of engineering and science.
