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.


Linear systems, Eigen functions, Complex Analysis, Euler's formula, Complex derivative, Cauchy-Riemann equation, Holomorphic function, Complex integral, Cauchy's integral theorem, Cauchy's integral formula, Cauchy's residue theorem, Laurent series expansion, Taylor series expansion, Fourier series expansion, Complex Fourier series expansion, Fourier Integral, Fourier transform, Sampling theorem, Discrete time Fourier transform, Laplace transform, Differential equation, Linear time invariant systems and frequency responses.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
