- Homework (H) problems will be assigned on a (approx.) fortnightly basis and be submitted via Gradescope . Collaboration on the homework is permitted, however each student must write and submit independent solutions. No late homework will be accepted (unless an extension is granted in advance by the instructor).

- There will be two mid-term exams and a final project. The first midterm exam (M1) will be held in the beginning of October, and the second midterm exam (M2) will be held in the beginning of December. Details of the final project (F) will be given to you early in the semester.

- You may bring one sheet of notes to the first exam, and two to the second exam. You may use both sides of the sheets, the sheets are to be standard US or European size with font size 10 or larger printing (or similar handwriting size). The examinations are closed book otherwise. Calculators, laptop computers, tables of integrals, etc. are not permitted.

- Your course grade will be determined by your performance in the H, M1, M2 and F, according to the formula:

Score = .2H + 0.3F + max{.35M1 + .15M2, .15M1 + .35M2},

where H, M1, M2 and F are normalized to 100.

Prerequisite: ECE 461 or ECE 459 or equivalent.

Topical prerequisites: Undergraduate digital communication and probability courses and some discrete-time signal processing background.
