Lecture "Signals and Systems II"

Basic Information

Lecturers:   Gerhard Schmidt (lecture), Marco Gimm/Christin Bald (exercise)
Room:   KS2/C-SR I
Language:   German
Target group:   Students in electrical engineering and computer engineering
Prerequisites:   Signal and Systems, Part 1    

This course teaches basics in systems theory for electrical engineering and information technology. This basic course is restricted to continuous and deterministic signals and systems.

Topic overview:

  • Modulation
  • Stochastic signals and corresponding spectra
  • Linear systems and stochastic signals
  • Ideal systems
  • State-space description
  • Add-ons (transforms)

In KW 43/19 and 44/19, there will be a lecture instead of the exercise. Date, time and room remain the same. 

The exam procedure for Signals and Systems II has been adapted slightly. The notes on the exam execution and rules will be shortened. Instead of reading out the whole exam problems there will be 10 minutes of additional reading time. Please note that during this reading time no writing will be allowed.

Exam Results and Exam Inspection:

The results of the summer semester's exam of 26.09.2019 are now online in the QIS-system. Please note the date of the first exam inspection:

Date: Wednesday, 30.10.2019
Time: 12:30 h - 13:30 h
Room: Library of the DSS-group (D-037 A)

Please note that any information regarding your exam, including achieved points and "how close" you are to passing, can only be given out during an official exam inspection. Your grades will always be available through the QIS-system as soon as possible.

Recently, we get the new projector front-ends from Atlas Elektronik for our MIMO SONAR system. This was part of the "Großgerät" which was obtained with the help of the German research foundation (DFG). Now we are able to perform underwater experiments that will show if our ideas and corresponding realt-time algorithms also works in real environments.

We would like to thank all of our ...
