AA 599 Class Projects
The purpose of the project is to make you even more familiar with one specific aspect of network dynamic systems. Also, I would like you to write a 3-5 pages summary of the work that you examine and present it to the class. The first thing that I want you to do is to choose the area that you want to focus on for your project. If you have a paper or two that you have already found, you can upload on the wiki and let me approve it.
There are two criteria for selection of your project paper:
Here is the list of projects so far:
Here is a "partial" list of people (in alphabetical order) who work on networks and dynamics/control issues over them- you might want to consult their websites and read about their works to see if there is one that interests you for the class project.
In addition, I thought I include a sample of papers that you might like to look at- even if you don't necessary like to present any of these papers, looking at the references will be very helpful in identifying a paper that you like to read about more and share with the class- please look at the class website AA599-networks as well for some additional papers in the area.
