A thorough treatment of discrete time, linear systems both in the time domain and the frequency domain. The discrete convolution, feedback systems, the z-transform, the frequency response and the discrete Fourier transform and signal modulation are covered in detail, along with design and application of finite and infinite impulse response filters. The course includes an introduction to control system theory, in both the time and frequency domains, for analog and digital systems. Strong emphasis is placed on problem solving through development of Matlab code to solve physical problems.

Prerequisite(s): (EP 202 or EP 229) and EP 214 and EP 228 and MATH 224.
