SSUM Signals and Systems Using Matlab

The SSUM package is a collection of demonstrations and exploratory applications for signal processing programmed in MATLAB. It demonstrates extensively the concept of convolution, Fourier Analysis, FIR and IIR filters, modulation and much more. To use all examples the Matlab "Signal Processing Toolbox" is required (available in the CIP-room).
