EE313 Linear Systems and Signals - Lectures

Fall 2018

This is a three-credit course that meets for three hours per week of lecture. Lecture begins on Thursday, August 30th, and ends on Thursday, December 6th. Each lecture is scheduled for 75 minutes. Final exam date is TBA.

The lecture topics, reading assignments and deliverables for the semester follow, where DT means Discrete Time and CT means Continuous Time. The reading assignments are primarily from the required textbook Signal Processing First by J. H. McClellan, R. W. Schafer, and M. A. Yoder (SPFirst). Errata and a companion Web site are available.
