This course deals with the problems of continuous signals and systems. Emphasis is put on signal processing in presence of noise and on applications in measuring engineering and telecommunication. Signal sampling and its reconstruction, Description of discrete signals in time and frequency domain. Discrete Fourier Transformation (DFT), Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT), Digital filtering, Filters with finite impulse response (FIR), Filters with infinite impulse response (IIR), Stochastic signal processing, Correlation functions, Synchronous detection, Wavelet transformation, Principles of optical display techniques, Picture digitalization, Geometric transformation, Brightness transformation, Noise filtering, Failure detection, Edge detection, Two-dimensional integral transformations, Digital image processing methods, optical and optoelectronic signal processing, Physical limits of signal processing.
Student is well informed in fundamental principles of signal processing, gains ability to understand of technical articles in world-class literature.
Knowledge of undergraduate mathematics and physics of technical faculties is supposed.

Assessment methods and criteria
Composite examination (Written part + oral part)

Credit - 80% attendance in laboratory Exam - written and oral part. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
