CE-310---Signals and Systems Spring-2010
Credit Hour: 3+0

Instructor: Junaid Qadir Email: junaid.qadir@seecs.edu.pk
Office: Room 218, Faculty Block Tel: 9085-2105

Course Description:

This course will provide an insight into how many physical processes, in various engineering disciplines,
can be mathematically modeled as systems. We will learn about analytical techniques that allows us to
model the behavior of the system and gain insight into the characteristics of signals. These techniques, in
most cases, work by transforming signals into different domains providing alternative viewpoints which
allow more intuitive/ simpler solutions to various engineering problems.

The course will provide skills to model, analyze and design signals and systems in general.

Course Contents:

The following are the contents of this course:

1) Introduction to Signals and Systems (1 week)
Types of Signals
Types of Systems
2) Frequency Domain View of Signals and Systems (1 week)
An alternate viewpoint which is in most cases provides better/ intuitive insights into signal and
systems behavior.
3) Linear Time-Invariant (LTI) Systems Theory (2 weeks)
Systems whose properties can be exploited to simplify their modeling, analysis and design.
4) Fourier Series (2 weeks)
Representation of periodic signals into sum of weighted sinusoids. Sinusoids interact with LTI
systems in simple predictable ways leading to tractable modeling, analysis and design of signals
and systems.
5) Fourier Transform (2 weeks)
Representation of aperiodic signals into integral of weighted sinusoids. Sinusoids interact with LTI
systems in simple predictable ways leading to tractable modeling, analysis and design of signals
and systems.
6) Laplace Transform: (2 weeks)
Representations of continuous time signals (some of which may not have a fourier transform) as
integral of scaled complex exponentials. Complex exponentials interact with LTI systems in
simple predictable ways leading to tractable modeling, analysis and design of signals and
systems.
7) Z Transform: (2 weeks)
Representation of discrete time signals (some of which may not have a fourier transform) as sum
of scaled complex exponentials. Complex exponentials interact with LTI systems in simple
predictable ways leading to tractable modeling, analysis and design of signals and systems.
8) Signal Processing Applications (Time permitting)
Communication
Image Processing
Speech Processing
Sound/ Music Synthesis

Conduct of Labs

This course has no formal lab work.

However, certain hands-on exercises using Matlab will be integrated with the course. These exercises will
usually qualify for bonus marks but may also be given as assignments.

Quizzes:

A number of quizzes will take place in the class to measure the learning progress of the students. These
quizzes, which may be announced or unannounced, will usually last for 10 minutes.
Late assignment submission policy:

Due dates will be announced with all assignments taking into account the difficulty of the assignment.
Assignments submitted late will earn a penalty according to the following simple rule*:

Late by up to 1 day: 25% deduction
Late by more than 1 day but less than 2 days: 50% deduction
Later than 2 days: not accepted.

* In exceptional cases, the instructor may choose to offer relaxations in the above rules for time not exceeding one hour.

Plagiarism Policy:

SEECS maintains a strict no tolerance plagiarism policy. While collaboration in this course is highly
encouraged, you must ensure that you do claim other peoples work/ idea as your own. Plagiarism occurs
when the words, ideas, assertions, theories, figures, images, programming codes of others is presented
as your own work. You must cite and acknowledge all sources of information in your assignments. Failing
to comply with the SEECS plagiarism policy will lead to strict penalties including zero marks in
assignments and report to the academic coordination office.
