Description This course demonstrates how to conduct historical research through a case study of a nineteenth-century work of British political satire, "The Egyptian Red Book." It examines how to categorize historical documents, how to identify images of unknown figures, and how to decode satire from a different historical period. It will introduce a variety of research techniques used by historians as well as a number of resources available at research libraries.
Description This course guides you through how to conduct historical research by conducting a case study on Douglas Sladen's "Oriental Cairo: City of the 'Arabian Nights'" (1911), a work included in the Travelers in the Middle East Archive (TIMEA). It introduces some standard research techniques used by historians, such as establishing a subject's biography and placing a work in context, and it also explores how to use library resources such as online catalogs and databases.
Description Introduction to the use of Promela and SPIN as a model-checker for verifying concurrent programs. The underlying transition system is used as a model for the interpretation of Linear Temporal Logic (LTL) formulas.
Description This course explores how to study material culture and political history through a series of research questions centered on the Souvenir of Egypt, a decorative silk from the nineteenth century that is included in the Travelers in the Middle East Archive (TIMEA). A variety of images are depicted on the Souvenir of Egypt, including texts, flags, portraits and a landscape scene. We will research and identify each of the images on the silk in order to gain an understanding of their meanings independently and in relation to one another and to build a larger argument about the Souvenir's historical significance.
Description This course introduces students to fundamental control systems theory with emphasis on design and implementation. These labs focus on technical implementation issues of classical control theory in the frequency domain and modern control theory in the state-space. Design and implementation for this course is done using National Instruments LabVIEW software and hardware for control and Educational Control Products (ECP) hardware for the plants.
Description The purpose of this lab is to familiarize students with the DSP development workstation in the signal processing lab by examining sampling, analysis, and reconstruction of continuous-time signals. Specifically, we will first look at sampling/reconstruction of continuous-time signals. We will then examine time- and frequency-domain displays. Finally, we will examine the importance of sampling frequency and its effects on aliasing.
Description We explore intelligent motion detecting using compressed sensing. Starting from the proof-of-concept that motion can be detected, we have created an algorithm to deterministically compute the speed of a known object under idealized conditions. We provide an explanation of its validity based on Parseval’s Theorem and propose an upper velocity resolution limit for our computation. A framework is provided for extending our work with support vector machines to automatically classify observed motion.

This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work even for commercial purposes, as long as they credit you and license their new creations under the identical terms. This license is often compared to “copyleft” free and open source software licenses. All new works based on yours will carry the same license, so any derivatives will also allow commercial use. This is the license used by Wikipedia, and is recommended for materials that would benefit from incorporating content from Wikipedia and similarly licensed projects.
This license lets others remix, tweak, and build upon your work non-commercially, and although their new works must also acknowledge you and be non-commercial, they don’t have to license their derivative works on the same terms.
This license is the most restrictive of our six main licenses, only allowing others to download your works and share them with others as long as they credit you, but they can’t change them in any way or use them commercially.
