Students are responsible for the material in the textbook and that in the handouts, if any. The class notes and slides are just "notes"; they may not cover all required material. The book is the reference for the required material.
As the semester progresses, I will be depositing electronic copies of my class notes as they become available on this page. My notes are based on the textbook. This is the list of the notes as of Sept 21st, 2002:
Chapter 1: Introduction, Topologies, and Protocols
Chapter 2: Protocols - The OSI Reference Model and the TCP/IP Stack
Chapter 3: Data, Signals and Transmission
These slides do not include Fourier Series and Fourier Transform - refer to Fourier Series Expansion and Filtering handout
Chapter 4: Transmission Media
These slides are originally for Stallings - I just added some explanatory text and modern (colored) illustrations
Chapter 5: Data Encoding - Modulation Techniques
Chapter 6: Data Communication Interface (Asynchronous/synchronous Transmission, V.24/EIA-232-F, ISDN interface)
Chapter 7: Data Link Control (Flow/Error Control Schemes and HDLC)
Chapter 8: Multiplexing (FDM and TDM)
These are the set of notes provided by the publisher. The original power point files are found at: ftp://ftp.prenhall.com/pub/esm/computer_science.s-041/stallings/Slides/DCC6e-Slides/
while the pdf printout of for each of the chapters is given below:
Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Protocols and Architecture
Chapter 3: Data Transmission
Chapter 4: Transmission Media
Chapter 5: Data Encoding
Chapter 6: The Data Communication Interface
Chapter 7: Data Link Control
Chapter 8: Multiplexing
- Periodic signals - Period T and the relationship with the fundamental frequency f
- The DC component of a signal - The power of a periodic signal
- The Fourier series expansion of a periodic signal
