Advanced Transform Methods (BUPT joint programme)
Transforms between the time/spatial and frequency domains are widely used in the processing of signals and images. This module introduces a variety of transforms (frequency analysis and time-frequency analysis) and explores how they are suitable for different signal and image processing applications such as filtering and compression. These techniques include the Fourier Transform (FT) (including DIT FFT), Short-Time Fourier Transform (STFT), Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT), Wavelet Transform, Wigner-Ville Distribution and Karhunen-Loeve Transform.
Control Theory (BUPT joint programme)
This module introduces control theory and its applications to the measurement, processing and regulation of electronic signals found in open-loop and closed-loop interconnected systems. It includes the principles of operation of sensors that allow the attributes of physical devices to be measured. The main topics are Mathematical Modelling, Control System Characteristics, Control System Performance, Performance Indices, Stability, Analysis Methods (Root Locus, Frequency Response, Time Domain), Compensator and Controller Design, Digital Control Systems, MIMO Systems, State-Space Representation, Observability, Controllability, Robust Systems, Safety Critical Systems.
