CS 5331: Foundation of Cyber-Physical System (CPS) introduces the design and analysis of computational systems that interact with physical processes. Applications of such systems include medical devices and systems, consumer electronics, toys and games, assisted living, traffic control and safety, automotive systems, process control, energy management and conservation, environmental control, aircraft control systems, communications systems, instrumentation, critical infrastructure control (electric power, water resources, and communications systems for example), robotics and distributed robotics (telepresence, telemedicine), defense systems, manufacturing, and smart structures.
This course is about the foundational principles behind CPS design. This course is multi-disciplinary: it covers issues related to both theory and practice, and brings together familiar topics and introduces new ones to show how these concepts are essential to model- based design of CPS. The course will look at three general themes:
System Modeling (i.e. expressing formally what a system does),
System Design (i.e. developing artifacts to achieve particular system goals),
System Analysis (i.e. specifying and checking important properties of the system).

The following schedule of class lectures is subject to change. All changes will be announced as far in advance as possible on the course website (Blackboard). You are responsible for reading the appropriate chapter (check reading materials below) in the course textbook before each class.
The rule governing academic conduct and honesty by TTU and College of Engineering should be strictly obeyed. Zero tolerance to plagiarism- once caught in any assignment (from a single homework or a project), all involved will get an F for this class and be reported to the university. Everything you do for credit in this course is supposed to be your own work. Whenever you have doubts about the problems in homework and assignment, discussing with TA or instructor is encouraged. However you need to write the solution yourself and list the contribution from other people.
All violation of classroom civility will be reported to the Student Judicial Programs. The TTU catalog states: "Students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conductive to learning." In order to ensure that all students gain from the time spent in class, students are prohibited from engaging in any form of distraction, e.g., reading newspaper (or other articles), working on other courses, and using cell-phones or laptops for calls or messages. If you indulge in any such inappropriate behavior, without explicit consent of the instructor, you will, at the very least, be asked to leave the classroom.
Student with Disabilities
Any student who, because of disability, may require special arrangements in order to meet course requirements should contact the instructor as soon as possible to make any necessary arrangements. Students should present appropriate verification from Student Disability Services during the instructor's office hours. Please note that instructors are not allowed to provide classroom accommodations to a student until appropriate verification from Student Disability Services has been provided. For additional information, you may contact the Student Disability Services office in 335 West Hall or 806-742-2405.
