I work as a Mechanical Engineer in Los Angeles. Consequently, spectrum analysis algorithms for cognitive radios have been developed to allow for more efficient use of bandwidth. I took him during the summer, and he rushed every lesson. Matin is an amazing professor, would take again. Cons: I feel as if I learned absolutely nothing. The ticks help you pass.
Be prepared to take notes because he doesn't rely on a book , rather he keeps his own material. Discourages use of textbook or calculator required for business degree. Open notes is great but exams are extremely difficult, kind of like a puzzle you have to do blindfolded and work through backwards and upside down before you ever get to the answer. He knows his material like the back of his hand! Make sure you participate in his class to get ticks. The statistical improvement over the standalone and baseline case is presented.
I find stats to be very challenging, but he offers a lot of extra credit. Finally, simulation results for Evaluate and Switch diversity combining is given over various levels of channel fading correlation. The growth of digital cellular telephony has created demand for rich multimedia services similar to what we have come to expect of wire-line communications. I used a scientific calculator for my tests and I did better than people with Ti-84s. Multiple users transmit simultaneously narrowband signals using the same carrier frequency, each one using a distinct pulse shaping function with fixed bandwidth and time duration. The applications are far reaching such as video conferencing, emergency medical consultation and directions to m-commerce, remote site surveying and embedded navigational systems.
Exams are open notes and He drops the lowest score. Our analysis includes a qualitative evaluation of a wide range of interference mitigation techniques with practical implementation issues for both systems. Matt is a good teacher. He goes over the homework with step by step instructions on how to get full credit. Open book, open notes for tests.
Lectures are very interesting, and sometimes a little over the top, but its all to be well noted to keep it interesting. I think he wants to be there less than we do. In our work, we also developed a novel offline receiver selection algorithm that automatically selects the subset of multistatic receivers used by the online multistatic radar within each sub-region of the target's airspace. The effect on reducing the risk of interference by collaborating across multiple nodes that provides increased robustness of sensing of open spectrum through spatial diversity is also discussed and quantitative values for the interference mitigation under collaborative behaviors are also presented Researchers have consistently found that many wireless protocols are inefficient at utilizing the entire communication spectrum. Challenges in building such a system for peer-to-peer links and network applications are discussed along with potential coordination algorithms.
I have been married for 20 years and have 2 children two boys ages 17 and 13. Get a tutor for this guy! For a stats class, it was kinda interesting. The exchange of state information enables radar and comms networks to apply a variety of coordinated coexistence mechanisms that shrinks the minimum required standoff range between systems while sustaining the performance of each system. This paper describes a new approach to solving the multistatic receiver placement problem using an offline optimization technique. Got by thanks to extra credit. A well-positioned ensemble of multistatic radar receivers can offer improved target localization accuracy over a monostatic radar; however, its system performance is sensitive to placement of the multistatic radar receivers with respect to the illumination source and the target. We call the gain achieved by finding a better location the mobility gain.
Our analysis and high fidelity simulations show that a careful selection of coexistence mechanisms reduces the minimum required standoff range up to 8 times compared to the standoff range when no coexistence mechanisms are used. I have been teaching at various Colleges and Universities in Southern California since 1981 in areas of Mathematics, Statistics, Engineering, and Computer Science. I've gotten all A's in statistics before but the way he teaches is just not right for me and I'm failing. The one thing I don't like is that although I pass, I'm not learning. Matin Lackpour worked as a Mechanical Engineer with over 25 years of professional services in electrical utility industries. Most tests have an extra credit question at the end. We present a detailed performance analysis of Monte Carlo simulation trials of an indoor spectrum sharing scenario.
He throws random stuff in the exams and gets furious when the class gets a low score. Not easily reached outside of class and doesn't clarify questions well. Rich multimedia applications, such as videoconferencing, telemedicine, and video-on-demand, are proposed and will be implemented in the near future owing to the capability of broadband mobile communications. More measurements and simulations are required to realistically quantify the spatial and polarization diversity gain achievable in a typical in-building radio environment. Didn't use book, which made it difficult to study and understand concepts. He will also asks what percentages you want for homework, tests, and project! Avoid at all cost, enough said.
If i could take a math class with him again, i definitely would. I would definitely take his class again. A highlight of his career was supervising a group of 10 engineers and programmers to optimize electrical generation and transmission resources of the City of Los Angeles. I passed Lackpours Math 67 with a B. His lectures are very clear and he puts it in a way so everyone can understand.
His upbeat personality will make you never want to miss a single class! Open notes for exams and goes over hw. Additionally, a new expression for radar capacity is introduced that when combined with traditional communication capacity provides a unified measure of the total capacity of the combined radar-comms network. The way he teaches is so unclear to me and I've decided to buy the book and try to teach myself. A lot of extra credit opportunities, notes and book are allowed on the exams, and he gives you 'ticks' for class participation which can increase your total overall score in the class. No text, 5 batches of homework, discussion question every week, and 5 exams. Make sure you purchase the online access code to receive your online homework grade. The measurements represent a good dynamic data set including motion and spatio-temporal diversity.
