Seminar in DSP Algorithms and Applications 0368-3328


Second Semester 2015, Sundays 17:00-19:00, Dan David 204

Each participant in the seminar will present a DSP algorithm or application. Each presentation will include a software demonstration. Topics and dates will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. Subject matter must be coordinated with the instructor. Course grade will depend both on depth of understanding, clarity of presentation, and creativity.
