Electronic Circuits and Instrumentations(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Applied Physics Quantum Science and Energy Engineering
Starts 1 : 4 the previous term 4 the previous term
Elective/Compulsory : Elective Elective
Lecturer : Kazumasa IIDA Associate Professor 

•Course Purpose
In this course we will learn classical error theory and deterministic signal in order to correctly and accurately evaluate physical quantities. At the end of lecture participants are expected to have the following knowledege: error theory including propagation of error and various probability density functons, and basic analysis of deterministic signal.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Prerequisites may be mathematics, statistical physics, and solid state physics

•Course Topics
Half of the lecture deals with error theory, binomial distribution, Poisson distribution, hyper-geometric distribution, the most likelihood estimate, normal distribution, moment generating function, exponential distribution, Weibull distribution, and Markov process.

The rest of lecture deals with frequency spectrom of periodic signal, Fourier series and transform, characater of Fourier transform, sampling theorem, Discrete Fourier transform (DFT), fast Fourier transform (FFT), correlation function, window function.

No text books will be used. But, the files used for the lectures will be uploaded on NUCT. So please download relevant files prior to the lectures.

•Additional Reading
All recommended books are written in Japanese. Therefore, if one needs English books, please ask me.

•Grade Assessment
Grading will be based on examination (the midter/report 50% and the term exam 50%).
A passing grade is more than 60 points or more by 100 point full marks.

No required conditions for taking this course.
