Previous Years

CE1: Hands-On Computer Engineering, F04, W05, S05, F05, W06, S06

Introdcutory class in digital logic, assembly language, networks, robotics, and other topics in computer engineering. 2 units.

CE12C: Computer Organization, W98, F99

Assembly language and computer organization using MIPS and an HC11 microkit developed by Stephen Petersen and CE123. For other instructors, source for my TeX notes based on those of K. Miller and M. Hill is are available.

CE16: Discrete Mathematics, F95

Logic, sets, proofs, recurrences. Examples from the universe set of B5, DS9, SAAB, and VOY.

CE110: Computer Architecture, W94,S95, F96

Computer architecture. In addition to a study of the basics of computer arithmetic and current processor architecture, my hope in several assignments is to provide direct knowledge of the effects (read havoc) that computer architecture can play on the unwary programmer. Although this is most visible in the memory system (caches and virtual memory), some effects of pipelines can also be seen in execution times.

CE 113: Parallel and Concurrent Programming, F02

CE121: Microprocessor System Design, S92,W93,S94,W95, W97

Complete design of a microprocessor system. In past years, students have build complete 68008 systems, hooking up processors, memory, communication chips, and A/D and D/A converters. The final project has been creation of a digital music synthesizer using the hardware and software built during the quarter.

CE202: Computer Architecture, W92,W93, W96, F97, F98, S00, S01 S02 F03

CE220: Parallel Processing S92,S93,S95,S97,W99

This course is a basic introduction to parallel processing with an emphasis on architecture and basic algorithms. It alternates with CE290M, a course of changing topics. In Spring 95, this course studied transform-based algorithm mapping in addition to basic parallel architecture. Our 4096 MasPar, as well as the Kestrel simulator.

CE290M: Parallel Processing S94, S96, S98, F99

In Spring 98 and Fall 99, we studied parallel algorithms. The focus in Spring 94 was numerical algorithms, such as a partial differential equation solvers, for array processors. In S96, the focus was on parallel programming, using a variety of vector, distributed, and parallel programming languages and machines, both here and at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). The text was Ian Foster's Designing and Building Parallel Programs.
Before giving me any written work, please read my personal list of things that bug me in formal writing.
