Content
The subject area "Stochastic Signals and Systems" includes general definitions and basic methodology that are required to describe dynamic processes in nature and engineering.
The student should recognize that physical and technical systems, especially in electrical/electronic engineering, automatic control, and information technology, can be investigated consistently and described mathematically by a unified point of view. This module focuses on methods for investigating static and dynamic systems under the influence of stochastic signals. For this purpose, the theory of the stochastic process is initially introduced, based on probability calculus. Methods for its mathematical description are presented.
The transfer of stochastic signals by abstract systems is elaborated mainly for nonlinear static systems (transformation of the probability density function) and for linear dynamic systems (transformation of the power density spectrum).
Requirements
Basics of the theory of deterministic systems and probability calculus.
