Materials for Courses Taught at IIT, 2020

These courses are open to everyone.  There is no need to register: you can simply turn up.  Students who want credits for taking the course will have to sign an attendance register and pass an oral exam.  Details will be given during the first session.

Note: due to the uncertainties caused by the corona virus outbreak, this year's courses have been postponed to a date that is not yet decided.

Introduction to Spatial (6D) Vectors

Computational Robot Dynamics

In both courses, you will be expected to take notes and solve problems during the classes, so remember to bring pen/pencil and paper with you; and you should also bring either a printed copy of the course notes or a laptop/tablet/etc. for reading the notes in electronic form.  For Computational Robot Dynamics only, you will be asked to write and execute some small Matlab (or Octave) functions during class; so you should try very hard to bring a laptop with you.
