These are recommended highly, but not mandatory. A list of other references is available in the readings.
12 units, Graduate H level.
There is no stated prerequisite course for 2.161. Students entering this course are expected to have an undergraduate understanding of system dynamics and elementary linear system theory, such as provided by this department's 2.003, 2.004, and 2.14 undergraduate sequence. There is no expectation of familiarity with discrete time signal processing.
MATLAB will be used extensively throughout the course. Students will be expected to be able to create ".m" files.
There will be three quizzes in the class. In addition there will be regular homework and project assignments. (Projects will involve the manipulation of real experimental data.) Grades will be allocated on a score consisting of:

Students may collaborate on the formulation of solutions to problem sets, but each student must turn in a solution that is obviously his/her own work.
Plagiarism, or the copying of material from others, including paraphrasing materials from the reports of others without acknowledgment, is contrary to the standards of the Institute and will be considered a serious academic offense.
Possible sanctions against students suspected of plagiarism may include a grade of 0 for the report, a grade of F for the course, departmental probation, and/or appearance before the institute Committee on Discipline (COD).
Fourier methods, Laplace transform, convolution, frequency/time domain processing. Passive and active continuous filters. Linear filter implementation using op-amps.
Data converters (A/D, D/A), machine architecture, software considerations.
Sampling theorem, aliasing, quantization, sampled data systems, cardinal (Whitaker) reconstruction, zero-, first-, second-order hold reconstructors, interpolators, non-resetting reconstructors, matched filtering. Interpolation and decimation.
The z transform, difference equations, relationship between F(z) and F*(jw), mappings between s-domain and z-domain, inverse z transform. Discrete–time stability.
The DFT and its relationship to the continuous FT, the FFT and implementations (decimation in time and frequency), radix-2 implementation, leakage, windowing. Uses of the DFT: convolution — (overlap and add, select savings), correlation. Random processes, power spectral density (PSD) estimation — methods of smoothing the periodogram (Welch's method, windowing the correlation function, etc). ARMA methods.
Impulse-, step-, ramp-invariant simulations. Tustin's method, matched poles/zeros, bilinear transform methods. Error analysis.
Butterworth, elliptic, Chebyshev low-pass filters. Low-pass design methods based on continuous prototypes. Realizations. Conversion to high-pass, band-pass, band-stop filters. Discrete-time filters: IIR and FIR. Linear phase filters. Frequency sampling filters.
Linear prediction, adaptive filters (LMS), recursive least-squares.
