Course description and aims

In the broad range of the information and communications engineering, signal analysis has been a powerful mathematical tool box for understanding the behaviors of signals and systems through alternative expressions, , as the sum / integral of well-understood elementary functions, e.g, monomial functions and trigonometric functions. Starting from the elementary complex analysis as a prerequisite of the signal analysis, this lecture surveys its central ideas found, e.g., in Taylor series expansion, Laurent series expansion, Fourier series expansion, Fourier transform, Sampling theorems, Discrete time Fourier transform and Laplace transform.

Student learning outcomes

Through the lectures and seminars, the students will be able to:
1) understand mathematical treatments of complex functions.
2) understand the mathematical ideas and calculation methods of the major signal analyses, e.g., Fourier series, Fourier transform, Laplace transform.
3) understand the technical value of the frequency analysis and apply to the broad range of Information and Communications engineering.
