At the end of the course, students should be able to:
- know fundamental theoretical and methodological principles of signal and time series description and processing and linear system analysis
- explain consequences and relationships between characteristics of real processes and data and applied methods and algorithms;
- apply different practical approaches to data processing to obtain required analytic results;
- design modified algorithms to process data of given particular characteristics
