Lecture Slides of Probability, Random Processes and Statistical Analysis

December 20th, 2013

I am currently teaching a graduate course “ELE 525: Random Processes in Information Systems” at Princeton University on Mondays and Wednesdays in the Fall Semester 2013-14. I taught the same course in the Fall 2012-13. I post here the lecture slides, hoping that they will be useful to other instructors who will teach similar courses. The slides should be also useful to those who wish to study the subjects based on the textbook Probability, Random Processes and Statistical Analysis, by Hisashi Kobayashi, Brian L. Mark and William Turin (Cambridge University Press, 2012, 800 pages).

Presentation at San Francisco Akamon-Kai (桑港赤門会で講演)

February 9th, 2013

ShoshichiKobayashiMemorialOn Saturday February 9th, 2013, I was invited to give a 40 minute presentation entitled “The Life and Achievements of Shoshichi Kobayashi” 「小林昭七の生涯と業績」, at the Annual Meeting of San Francisco Akamonkai (桑港赤門会の年次総会), attended by about 40 members. Shoshichi, who was a Berkeley resident of 50 years, was one of the oldest members of the Akamonkai (the Alumni Group of the University of Tokyo). The slides and my talk were given in Japanese (Click here for viewing slides, and for the YouTube videos please visit the following, which I am afraid is too long: 1) http://youtu.be/N03PvMM6FQc; 2) http://youtu.be/SZKkRxDpa3Y; 3) http://youtu.be/FZt2mDJ97ic; 4) http://youtu.be/6njQgHL5IoI; 5) http://youtu.be/pfn2LiUtvVo; 6) http://youtu.be/0XSYjhFv9tg )  The outline of my talk was as follows.
