Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Signals and systems in time and frequency domain, examples, discretization, filter and frequency transforms, compression, realization (signal processors), outlook to digital image processing

Learning Outcome

At the end of this module students are able to evaluate theoretical concepts and underlying algorithms of modern digital signal processing systems. In the exercise course, the students learn to apply these concepts to a concrete problem and to decide on a proper implementation.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Die Prüfungsleistung wird in Form einer Klausur erbracht. In dieser soll nachgewiesen werden, dass moderne Methoden der Signalverarbeitung beherrscht werden und geeignete Algorithmen für ein bestimmtes Problem ausgewählt werden können.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
