Subject fundamentals
Mandatory class, at the I period, III year. The topics are very multidisciplinary, and are used in most of the classes that follow.
The class describes the analysis techniques for continuous time deterministic signals and random processes (first part), and for deterministic discrete signals (second part). 
Expected learning outcomes
The ability to apply the gained knowledge will be verified through class and lab exercises, as well as during the oral examination. The oral examination will also help students in improving their communication skills. 
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Complex analysis of functions in one or two variables. Probability theory. Gaussian random variables. First order linear differential equations. Impulse function. Laplace transform.

Topics developed in the class.

Delivery modes
During the recitations either the instructor solves problems on the topics discussed during the lectures, or the students work independently on the suggested problems with guidance from the instructor. The class also includes 6 (optional) hours of software laboratory on digital filters design.
