innovative solutions to engineering problems. On the other hand,
biology is an area where engineering models and methods are also
helping us understand how nature acheives basic biological
functions.

This course shall introduce the fundamentals of modeling and control of linear time invariant systems; primarily from the
classical viewpoint of Laplace transforms and a brief emphasis on the state space formulation as well. The course will be
useful for students from major streams of engineering to build foundations of time/frequency analysis of systems as well
as the feedback control of such systems.

This course is offered to the Undergraduate Students as a seminar course and introduces the historical development of European philosophical tradition under forty topics by focusing some seminal contributions of ancient, modern and contemporary thinkers. The course begins with a brief outline of the philosophies of the Greek thinkers, which mark the beginning of Western philosophical tradition. After a brief discussion of the preSocratic thinkers, who are known as the ‘cosmologists’ or ‘natural philosophers’, it will examine the philosophies of the Sophists, Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. The course will then address the major conceptual developments happened during the modern age which was characterized by its scientific temperament and rational acumen. After discussing the major epistemological developments initiated by the rationalists and the empiricists and Immanuel Kant’s reconciliation of the clash between them, this course will examine the important contributions of philosophers like Hegel, Marx and Nietzsche and tries to understand how such developments lead to the unique philosophical contributions 20^{th} century Europe had witnessed. The course concludes with an overview of such developments like the Existentialism and Postmodernism.

Traditional testing is insufficient for software which control safetycritical systems. Model checking is a methodology which employs rigorous methods to verify whether (automata) models of software satisfy properties (specified in certain logics).
In this course, we will study theoretical foundations of model checking.
