Linear Systems and Signals Lecture 1 Introduction to signals and systems Signals: single valued functions that carry information (e.g. voice, radar, control, heart EKG, brainwaves, 2-D pictures {x,y}, 3-D video or RF electromagnetic radiation {x,y,t}) Systems: perform some kind of manipulation (processing) of signals (e.g. microphone, speaker, amplifier, demodulator) Systems can be electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, etc. Continuous time signals – signals defined at every instant in time. Usually denoted f(t) for all t (-∞,∞). In reality, no signal starts from -∞ and lasts forever but it is convenient to represent signals this way. Discrete time signals – signals defined only at discrete instants of time, but have a continuous range of amplitudes Digital signals – discrete time signals with discrete (quantized) amplitudes

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
