ASE 330M ASE 330M. Linear System Analysis. 3 Hours.
Explore the fundamentals of signals and systems; mathematical modeling of mechanical systems; transfer function; impulse response; Laplace transforms; response of linear, time-invariant systems; frequency response methods; time-domain analysis; introductory concepts for feedback control systems; multivariate linear dynamical systems; eigenvalues and eigenvectors; matrix exponentials. An introduction to fundamental elements of the theory of systems and signals and exposure to necessary concepts and tools required to perform modeling and analysis of linear dynamical systems. Demonstrate the theory through several simulation examples using MATLAB and Simulink relevant to applications of modern aerospace engineering systems. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Engineering Mechanics 311M, and Mathematics 427J or 427K with a grade of at least C- in each; and credit with a grade of at least C- or registration for Computational Engineering 311K (or Aerospace Engineering 211K or Computational Engineering 211K).
