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 for SPFirst is available.
