The course follows the basic course in signal processing and introduces advanced methods of analysis and digital signal processing. Graduates will learn the methods of digital signals analysis and be able to practically use them. They learn to know the conditions of use of correlation, spectral and coherent analysis of random signals. They will became familiar with methods of signal decomposition and independent component analysis and the time-frequency transformations. Emphasis will be placed on an ability to interpret the results of signal analyses.

Study targets:

Students will acquire theoretical and practical experiences about advanced signal processing methods. They will deepen the ability of solving problems of digital signal processing in MATLAB within exercises and within their individual projects.

Course outlines:

1. Modeling and representation of linear systems in time-, correlation- and spectral-domain
2. Measurement of the delay using correlation and spectral analysis
3. Coherence, partial coherence and their use
4. Cepstral analysis and its use for signal deconvolution
5. Spectral and cepstral distances and their use
