Minor Reference: Global Climate System (patterns, processes, and teleconnections). By Howard A. Bridgman and John E. Oliver (2006), Cambridge University Press, New York.
Earth systems science views Earth as a physical system of interrelated phenomena, governed by complex processes involving the geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and. biosphere. The Earth system science approach emphasizes relevant interactions of chemical, physical, biological and dynamical processes that extend over spatial scales from microns to the size of planetary orbits, and over time scales of milliseconds to billions of years. The Earth systems approach has become widely accepted as a framework posing disciplinary and interdisciplinary questions in relationship to humankind.
The aim of this class is to guide the students through a comprehensive understanding of the earth systems by adopting systematic and holistic approaches to the earth’s climate. First, interactions among the four major spheres are digested from climatologic point of view. Second, the interactions among sub-systems of the earth’s climate are tackled from energy-balance perspective. Third, the different time-scales and different spatial scales are thoroughly dealt with from geological perspectives. Finally, human forcing factors and the consequences are thoroughly investigated and future scenarios are discussed based on modeling results. The students upon completing this class are expected to be capable to conduct a sound scientific research on climate change or able to make a scientifically sound decision on environment management related issues.
This course is designed to provide a systematic knowledge regarding global environmental change so that the knowledge can serve as a foundation for further scientific research or as a decision-making reference for practical applications. The course will first focus on the present interactions among the four spheres by bringing the newest findings of the Earth’s System research into the class. The course then explores the long-term patterns of the Earth’s System change by presenting the newest data from deep-sea cores, ice cores, and terrestrial sequences. After understanding the current spatial patterns and the long-term temporal patterns, future changes will be discussed based on modeling predictions. Finally, the socio-economic perspectives of the global environmental changes will also be presented to the students.

Pattern recognition techniques are used to automatically classify physical objects (handwritten characters, tissue samples) or abstract multidimensional patterns (n points in d dimensions) into known or possibly unknown categories. A number of commercial pattern recognition systems are available for character recognition, handwriting recognition, document classification, fingerprint classification, speech and speaker recognition, white blood cell (leukocyte) classification, military target recognition, etc. Most machine vision systems employ pattern recognition techniques to identify objects for sorting, inspection, and assembly. The design of a pattern recognition system requires the following modules: (i) sensing, (ii) feature extraction and selection, (iii) decision making and (iv) performance evaluation. The availability of networked MEMS (low cost, high performance and miniaturized) sensors have resulted in vast amount of digitized data. Need for efficient archival and retrieval of this data has fostered the development of pattern recognition algorithms in new application domains.
This course will introduce the fundamentals of pattern recognition with application examples. Techniques for analyzing multidimensional data of various types and scales along with algorithms for projection, dimensionality reduction, clustering and classification of data will be explained. The course will present various approaches to exploratory data analysis and classifier design so students can make judicious choices when confronted with real pattern recognition problems. It is important to emphasize that the design of a complete pattern recognition system for a specific application domain requires domain knowledge, which is beyond the scope of this course.

Course grade will be assigned based on scores on 3 homework assignments, one project, and final close book exam. Weights for these three components are as follows: HW (30%), PROJECT (30%), Exam(40).
All homework solutions must reflect your own work. Failure to do so will result in a grade of 0 in the course.
The purpose of the project is to enable the students to get some hands-on experience in the design, implementation and evaluation of pattern recognition algorithms. To facilitate the completion of the project in a semester, it is advised that students work in teams of two. You are expected to evaluate different preprocessing, feature extraction, and classification approaches to achieve as high accuracy as possible on the selected classification task.
The project report should clearly explain the objective of the study, some background work on this problem, difficulty of the classification task, choice of representation, choice of classifiers, classifier combination strategies, error rate estimation, etc. For most of the classifiers, e.g., support vector machines and neural networks, software packages are available in the public domain. Feel free to use them. Emphasis of the project is to solve a practical and interesting pattern recognition problem using the tools that you have learnt in this course. It would be instructive to see how close you can come to the state-of-the-art accuracy on this database. Use the projection algorithms to display 2- and 3-dimensional representations of the multidimensional patterns.
Course objectives: (1)Evaluating software system; (2)Hands-on projects with open source;(3)Creating SNS, LMS and Intranet like Applications;(4)Enable the intelligent processing of information and add-value that can’t be delivered by other means;
You'll Learn: (1) how computing thinking take effect in developing useful software system and the ability to distinguish between good and bad Internet service ideas; (2)ability to deal with the complexity in designing and implementing your applications; (3)how to create a good software models for a specific application systems requirement; (4) how to make a assessment for a software system; (5) team working for conceiving and designing a useful application.
There two kind of audiences as following. The first category is the professional software developers building online large scale Web applications. The second category is the managers evaluating packaged software aimed at supporting online communities. We assume that students know how to write a computer program and debug it. We do not assume knowledge of any particular programming languages, standards, or protocols. The most concise statement of the course goal is to improve your way of thinking. Student would learn how to master the diversity and complexity in contemporary large scale Web applications. We promote the critical reading and thinking. Students are required to read and assimilate information from the readings beyond the material covered in class. Throughout the semester, papers and chapters of the texts will be read and discussed. Analytical writing and presentation are required. Students are asked to think critically and reason about information presented in the textbooks or papers. This critical evaluation requires that students offer their own understanding of the significance of what students have learned. Students should be able to present their knowledge to the public. The grade rules include two components: group project and individual work. The group project component has two parts: project prototype counts 25%, presentation counts 15%. The individual work component has three parts: final examination counts 30%, each homework counts 5%, final paper counts 15%.
