Linear Systems
Fall 2002
Description: Fundamental concepts in linear system theory: matrix algebra, linear vector space, linear operator; linearity, causality, relaxedness, and time invariance. Inputoutput and statespace models. Solutions of linear dynamic equation and impulse response. Characteristics of linear systems: controllability, observability, and stability.
Objective: After taking this course, the student should be able to derive mathematical models of physical systems and analyze those models. We will discuss both continuoustime and discretetime systems. Matlab problems will be assigned as part of the homework to demonstrate the theory discussed in class. After taking this course, the student will be in a position to move on to more advanced courses and topics in control theory and signal processing.

Homework: The homework assignments can be found at http://academic.csuohio.edu/simond/courses/eec510/homework.html. You can work with others on homework, but identical homework assignments will be given a grade of zero. Late homework will not be accepted. Homework should be neat and legible, the pages should be stapled, and the problems should be in order.
Tests: Quizzes and Exams will be open book and open notes. No electronic devices (e.g., calculators or computers) are allowed during quizzes or exams. No makeup quizzes or exams will be allowed without the prior permission of the instructor.
