To provide the student with the knowledge necessary to think in the "frequency domain" and to introduce the state-of-the-art methods and algorithms for computer-aided spectral analysis of temporal and spatial signals with applications in communications, signal analysis, radar systems, emitter location, signal recognition, and others.
Linear algebra, Fourier analysis, Discrete-time signals and systems.
- Basic Definitions and the spectral estimation problem.
- Periodogram and correlogram methods.
- Improved periodogram-based methods.
- Parametric methods for rational spectra.
- Parametric methods for line spectra.
- Filter-bank methods.
- Spatial methods for array signal processing.
|Periodogram methods||C2.17, C2.18||Sept 10, 10-12|
|Parametric methods for rational spectra||C3.16||Sept 15, 8-10|
|Parametric methods for line spectra||C4.9||Sept 28, 13-15|
|Filter bank methods||C5.13||Oct 4, 10-12|
|Spatial methods||C6.12, C6.13||Oct 11, 10-12|
The computer-labs are mandatory. If you for some reason cannot attend a specific session, please, contact the person responsible for the lab well in advance. If your absence was not predicted, make this contact as soon as possible. Make sure that you come prepared (see the course syllabus(in ps or pdf format) for descriptions of the different lab sessions).
All computer labs are scheduled to be in room 2315 (house 2, 3rd floor) at Pollacksbacken.
IMPORTANT: For access to the PC-labs at the department, an account at UpUnet-S (the university computer network for students) is required. *NEW!> When logging in password C should be used!<* Make sure that you have that password! Information about UpUnet-S can be found at http://www.student.uu.se/upunets/.
From the computer labs at the IT-department you can access matlab scripts for all the labs (so you don't have to do any programming yourself). Those lab-files can be found in two ways. If you have a G: drive mounted when you log into the system you find the files under G:\Program\Systemteknik\Spektralanalys\. If you don't have G: mounted you can either mount it yourself (using "Map Network Drive") or you can find the files directly under "My Network Places"-"Entire Network"-"Microsoft Windows Network"-"It-Pclab"\Pegasus\Program\Systemteknik\Spektralanalys.
The students are required to hand in solutions to homework problems and to pass all five labs. Each homework assignment gives a maximum of 20 points. The points required for the different grades for are as follows.
For Master of Science students:
For MN students:
For PhD students:
During the last lecture, up to 4 students may choose to present some applications of spectral analysis. Each presentation will last 25 minutes (including discussion) and its topic can be selected by the student or suggested by us. For each presentation a maximum of 20 points can be awarded.
The oral presentations of the solutions to the Homework problems previously scheduled on October 18 have been canceled permanently. The examination will be based on your solutions to the Homework problems (and your participation in the computer labs) only.
