**Topics**- Multirate Signal Processing: filter banks, multirate systems, filtering, decimation, upsampling, polyphase, perfect reconstruction, aliasing cancellation, signal representation and signal decomposition using vectors and matrices.
- Wavelets: wavelets from filter banks, bases, frames, orthogonality and biorthogonality, multiresolution, smoothness, vanishing moments, time-frequency and time-scale analysis, continuous-time and discrete-time wavelet transform, famous wavelet pairs, wavelet packet, symmetric extensions, complexity issues.
- Design methods: spectral factorization, polyphase matrix factorization, lattice structure, ladder structure (lifting scheme), integer wavelets, cosine modulation, time-domain optimization.
- Applications: Audio/Image/Video compression -- lossy and lossless, subband coding, quantization effect, signal denoising, wavelet shrinkage, inverse halftoning, database retrieval and indexing, multicarrier modulation, transmultiplexers, edge detection.
- Connections to compressed sensing, sparse recovery, convolutional neural networks, deep learning!

**Final Project**- Students are expected to work on a related topic of choice.
- The topic can be chosen from a list of suggestions provided by the instructor.
- A final project report and an oral demonstration/presentation are required from each project.

**Grading**- Midterm Exams: 50%
- Homework / Class Participation: 25%
- Final Project: 25%

**Important Dates**- First lecture: Thurs - Fri, 08/30 - 08/31/2018, 11:00AM, Shaffer 304

**Ethics Issues**- Please read the information provided by the Ethics Board.
- Midterm Exam will be closed book and closed notes. One 8.5 x 11 handwritten formula sheet will be permitted.
- On homework and projects, you are permitted to discuss the problems for clarification purposes, and to help each other with specific points. However, the overall solution and write-up should be your own work.
