In this lecture the first chapter of the lecture notes will be covered. We review some basic results from signal analysis and processing. We shall not go into detail and assume the reader has some basic background in signal analysis and processing. As basis for signal analysis, we use the Fourier transform. We start with the continuous Fourier transformation. But in applications on the computer we deal with a discrete Fourier transformation, which introduces the special effect known as aliasing. We use the Fourier transformation for processes such as convolution, correlation and filtering. Some special attention is given to deconvolution, the inverse process of convolution.
