The course will rely mostly on course notes. There will be additional required readings . The papers will range from foundational, classical papers, to quite recent advances. The students will have labs, done online, to illustrate some of the main ideas of the course. This sequence of labs will culminate in a final lab or a project, at the discretion of each student. Students may do the project in a group if they desire. These labs will alienate with problem sets. The course design incorporates, thus, the main elements of a classical engineering curricular structure with a heavy component of critical reading of technical literature.
