Research Position in Medical Imaging
Our group works on bio-medical imaging in collaboration with
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California (LBNL) and with
some local cardiologists. We have three ongoing projects to involve
students in:

RECURRENCE EQUATION
We solve recurrence equations often in analyzing complexity of algorithms, circuits, and such other cases. A homogeneous recurrence equation is written as: a0tn + a1tn-1 + . . . . + aktn-k = 0. Solution technique: Step 1: Set up a corr
SORTING
Problem: sort a list of numbers (or comparable objects).
Solution: An algorithm.
The problem is interesting for its theoretical value, and for
its practical utility. Many algorithms are available for the
purpose.

INTRODUCTION
Why write algorithms:
(1) To get it out of the head, human memory is unreliable!
(2) To communicate with the programmer and other algorithm
developers.
(3) To prove its correctness, to analyze, to improve its efficiency,

Masters Theorem:
T(n) = aT(n/b) + cni, for some constant integer i, and
constants of coefficients a and c.
Three cases:
a = = bi, the solution is T(n) = O(ni logb n);
a > bi,

Debugging OS/161 with GDB
These notes describe how to debug OS/1611. To debug kernel, you need to use a version
of gdb (gnu debugger) that has been patched to work specifically with OS/161. This
version of gdb that comes with OS/161 is called os161-gdb. B

Assignment: Add system calls to OS/161
In this assignment, you'll make a typical modification to OS/161. You will implement:
A simplified version of an existing system call (i.e., _exit).
Add two new system calls (i.e., helloword and printchar).
