Annotation The course introduces students to continuous and digital signal characteristics and signal analysis methods, as well as phenomena and processes in biological objects. Students acquire knowledge about the basics of digital signal processing, methods of time-frequency analysis, signals bounded in time or frequency domain. The course enables students to apply the acquired knowledge both in medical physics and biological signal processing..
Goals and objectives
