Objectives: This course is designed to teach parametric system identification and adaptive control. The main goals are to go over design methods for identification and identification-based control and analyze the stability and convergence properties of these.
Homeworks and Tests:
- Three exams @ 20% each
- Homeworks @ 40% total
An explanation of
the method used to determine the course grade:
- Letter grading is NOT based on absolute numerical points, it is based on your performance relative to class average.
- Each graded test and homework will be marked with the letter grade associated with the student's performance on that assignment.
dates for all tests and other major components of course work:
- Tests 1 and 2 (2nd week of February, 3rd week of March)
