Course detail

Analysis of Radiocommunication Signals

FEKT-MPC-ARSAcad. year: 2020/2021

The proposed structure of the subject focuses on the use of selected mathematical techniques in modern communication signal processing and wireless communication theory. The goal is to present students specialized mathematical apparatus, which is essential to understanding the principles of modern wireless communications.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students after completing the course should be able to solve problems associated with verification and testing assumptions and properties of the investigated phenomena and data files in the telecommunications field. The student is able to: (a) quantifying the probability of the event; (b) distinguishing between the random variables and describe their characteristics; (c) to test the hypothesis; (d) analyse and describe measurements; (e) estimating the shape of the spectrum and identify the spectral components; (f) identify and test the presence of a signal in noise; (g) evaluate the classification and construct the ROC curve.


A student who register the course should be able to: i) To compose a simple program in Matlab; ii) Practicing a mathematical calculation procedures.
