and COURSE GOALS: Many complex real-time application
systems are specified and constructed in a modular manner, in which
individual components are composed to build larger systems, which may
turn be composed to form even larger systems. As such hierarchical
design techniques come to be increasingly used in real-time
system design, it is incumbent that scheduling theory develop the
necessary tools and techniques to accurately and efficiently
analyze the timing properties of such hierarchically-constructed
systems. In this research seminar, we will study
recently-proposed techniques for the scheduling-theoretic analysis of
hierarchically specified and constructed real-time application systems.
The focus of the course is
primarily theoretical; hence, a certain degree of mathematical
sophistication is expected. If you are unsure whether you have
this, please consult the
instructor prior to signing up for the course.
INSTRUCTOR: Sanjoy Baruah.
MEETINGS: Tuesdays 5:00 - 7:30; SN 325
SYLLABUS and RUBRIC: There is no text-book for the course. We will study a number of recently-published papers which will be handed out in class (or made available in electronic form). There will be no assignments, tests, or other similar stress-inducing activities. Each participant will be required to make a series of presentations to the class, and to complete a major semester project of sufficiently high quality that it could be submitted for consideration towards presentation at a decent conference, or publication in a decent journal.
you are entitled to extra accommodation for any reason (such as a
disability), I will make every reasonable attempt to accommodate you.
However, it is your responsibility to discuss this with the
instructor during the first week of the course.
