Date Assigned: Friday, October 15, 2004 Date Due: Monday, October 18 and Friday, October 22, 2004
Reading:
Please continue to study Chapter 3 in the Lathi text on Fourier series.
We will not discuss Section 3.2 on correlation at this time,
but please study Sections 3.5-3.9 for next week.
Exam 2 will be on Wednesday, October 20.
The topics will include the following.
Chapter 2 on the time-domain analysis
of continuous-time systems (ZIR, ZSR, impulse response, convolution,
characteristic modes, etc.)
Chapter 3 on Fourier series (Sections 3.1, 3.3, and 3.4;
frequency domain representation of signals:
amplitude and phase spectrum; signal approximation;
trigonometric Fourier series)
The exam will include a convolution problem that you will
solve without a calculator.
For Lab 4,
please submit a report (one report per pair of students)
explaining your results and answers to the questions.
The report can be hand-written, if you would like,
and it is due on Friday, October 22, at 9 AM.
Please solve the following
problems in Chapter 3 of the Lathi text, and submit your solutions on
October 18.
Show all of your work.
If you obtain a result with your calculator, write down exactly what
you input to your calculator, and
identify the result from your calculator.
Problems 3.1-2 and 3.4-3 (parts b and c only).
Develop a Matlab program to plot the truncated Fourier series
using your results from problems 3.4-3 (parts b and c).
The program fstrun.m
that we used in class may be a useful template for your program.
Please try to do this for Monday, but you may submit your results
on Friday, October 22.
