provides a mathematical background in communication systems principles
that is necessary for undergraduate students. Several analog modulation
and demodulation methods are studied. By the end of the course, the
student should be able to characterize analog modulation signals in both
time and frequency domains. The student should also be knowledgeable of
differences between analog communication systems in terms of performance,
spectral characteristics, and complexity. The course includes an
introduction to pulse modulation techniques.
