**Some of the homework problems involve Poisson processes, which we did not cover in class. This topic will not be on the final, so you can ignore those homework questions. Also, I did not introduce the crosscorrelation function, which is referred to in Problem 3(a) on the last homework assignment, as well as a couple of other homework problems. This will also not be covered on the final. (12/10)** **New!****Your scores should now be available on Blackboard. They were not available until today. I'm sorry for the confusion.
