To introduce the fundamentals of continuous and discrete-time signal processing. This
course will cover linear system analysis including convolution and impulse response,
Fourier series, Fourier transform and applications, discrete-time signal analysis, sampling,
z-transform, analysis and design of digital filters, and discrete Fourier transform (DFT) with

1. Homework may be turned in one class after it is due with a late penalty of 10%.
Homework will not be accepted after the solutions are posted.
2. Make-up exams will not be given without advance notice to the instructor.

Please see the UTD Graduate catalog for policy on academic dishonesty. Giving or receiving
aid on a graded assignment or test is considered cheating and will be harshly penalized.
