Each student will complete an analysis/design project in which they describe how to implement computation in a novel setting, and/or describe how to implement an interesting or useful class of algorithms on an unconventional computer. Write ups are due during finals week, although project updates will be required 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through the course. Students are encouraged to discuss project ideas and issues at great length with the instructor.

Projects

Each student will complete an analysis/design project in which they describe how to implement computation in a novel setting, and/or describe how to implement an interesting or useful class of algorithms on an unconventional computer. Write ups are due during finals week, although project updates will be required 1/3 and 2/3 of the way through the course. Students are encouraged to discuss project ideas and issues at great length with the instructor.
