# EE 373 Signals and Systems

Prerequisites: Textbook: Instructor: Assistant: Rules: MATH 202, EE 201 A. V. Oppenheim, A. S. Willsky, with S. H. Nawab, Signals and Systems, Prentice Hall, 2nd Edition, 1997. Levent Arslan (arslanle@boun.edu.tr), Tel: (212) 359 6421 Deniz Sevi, e-mail: deniz.sevis@boun.edu.tr, Tel: (212) 359 7199 ISL Lab HW assignments 2 midterms (in-class, closed-book) Final Exam (in-class, closed-book)

The course is designed to familiarize students with the techniques for analyzing and synthesizing continuoustime as well as discrete-time systems. Time domain and frequency domain signal analysis tools will be studied, and the subjects of filtering and modulation will be introduced as signal processing techniques both in continuous-time and discrete-time. Design concepts will be emphasized with respect to filtering and modulation. The students are encouraged to use internet resources such as Wikipedia, MIT open courseware, etc. in order to grasp the topics via different perspectives and visual supplements.
