This paper presents the development of Quantum Fourier transform (QFT) education tools in the object-oriented Java-DSP (J-DSP) simulation environment. More specifically, QFT and Inverse QFT (IQFT) user-friendly J-DSP functions are developed to expose undergraduate students to quantum computing. These functions provide opportunities to examine QFT resolution, precision (qubits), and the effects of quantum measurement noise.
A brief introduction to the NPTEL.ac.in platform of India which
provides free access to quality online educational content for
Signal Processing. Experiences of creating courses related to Signal Processing,
supported by the European Union-funded project, MIELES.
Signals and systems is a well known fundamental course in signal processing. How this course is taught to a student can spell the difference between whether s/he pursues a career in this field or not. Giving due consideration to this matter, this paper reflects on the experiences in teaching this course. In addition, the authors share the experiences of creating and conducting a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on this subject under edX and subsequently following it up with deliberation among some students who did this course through the platform.
We give a brief history of the performance analysis of LMS.
Using averaging theory we show when and why the ‘independence
assumption’ ‘works’; we preface this with a fast
heuristic explanation of averaging methods, clarifying their
connection to the ‘ODE’ method. We then extend the discussion
to more recent distributed versions such as diffusion
LMS and consensus. While single node LMS is a single timescale
algorithm it turns out that distributed versions are twotime
scale systems, something that is not yet widely understood.
