be familiar with the significance of eigenvalues in the context of stability and resonance, in linear systems, with continuous as well as discrete time.

be able to describe and use the concepts of linearity, time invariance, stability, causality, impulse response and transfer function.

be able to describe the structure of an exponential matrix, and be able to compute exponential matrices in simple cases.

be able to define the concept of convolution, continuous and discrete, and to use convolutions both in the context of linear, time invariant systems and in the description of certain types of integral equations.
