Mathematics and Signal Processing 

"Mathématiques et Traitement du Signal" (MTS)

The domain of Mathematics and Signal Processing comprises two main elements:

  • data is represented as a signal (image, sound, video…) for transmission and storage;
  • extraction of signals from technological or natural sources representing relevant information for the observer ( seismography, astronomy, remote sensing, medical imaging…).

Data encoding produces signals which are as precise as possible in order to reduce transmission data rate and data storage volume while every effort should be made to guarantee quality of transmission and storage.
Statistics are fundamental to the data extraction process of natural or technological signals. Indeed the expected signal is often degraded by external factors (noise, distortion…) which must be modelled as random phenomena. 

Credits are related to Units ("Unité de Valeur, UV") which are made up of one or more modules.
