Midterms: We will have two midterms approximately during the 4th and 8th weeks into the term. The midterms will contribute 30% each to the final grade.

ProjectThe project for the class consists of a 4-5 pages of report using the style file on this page http://control.disp.uniroma2.it/cdc2012/author_info.php (either tex or word).

The project report format is:

  • abstract
  • problem setup and assumptions
  • basic results
  • simulations, proof
  • applications
  • references

The project has to deal with a theoretical or an applied aspect of the topics covered in the course, including non-trivial properties of linear spaces, linear operators, matrices and matrix inequalities, normed and metric spaces, among others, and applications in engineering sciences. The mere fact that the paper contains "matrices" would NOT qualify the paper as appropriate for the project and NO CREDIT will be given to reports that do not have an analytic component that is consistent with the level of discussion/instruction in the course. Please consult with the instructor about your project report if you are in doubt.

The project report is due as a pdf file (no other formats will be accepted), submitted on the catalyst website.

by 5:00 pm December 11th. Please note that this site closes at 5:00 pm on December 10th.

Here are some sample project papers.
