Course description

Knowledge and understanding:
Thanks to the strict methodology of the scientific subjects
the student matures skills and understanding skills
necessary for subsequent studies

Ability to apply the knowledge and
comprehension ability:
The didactic setting cantamplate that theoretical training is
by exercises that solicit the active participation, proactive attitude and the ability to autonomous processing.

Autonomy of judgment:
The proposed topics allow the development of the ability to understand and adapt learned approaches to cases other than those proposed in the classroom.

Communicative Skills:
The course setting is such that the student will develop proper language properties and will use it to use unambiguous terminology, proper to the communications systems and radar systems

Ability to learn independently
The proposed exercises are designed to develop the ability to identify important aspects before dealing with the exercise itself

Prerequisites

Knowledge of basic tools of mathematical analysis and basic concepts of probability calculation
