EECS20N: Signals and Systems

Instructor Guide for Week 8

This week introduces frequency domain concepts and the Fourier series. Periodic signals are defined, and Fourier series coefficients are calculated by inspection for certain signals. The frequency domain decomposition is motivated by the linearity of systems considered last week (using the superposition principle), and by psychoacoustics and music.
