Faculty/Library Review of Subscriptions for Cancellation - Lists Now Online

The Review of Subscriptions website is now available with information on all of our subscription resources and whether the library's recommendation is to keep or cancel each resource. Each resource has a feedback button for faculty to rate the resource.

We encourage faculty to comment on those subscriptions in their areas that are recommended for cancellation. We can take feedback on resources through May 5, 2011.

The website is: http://collections.libraries.claremont.edu/reviews/login.php. Faculty will need to login using their name and 10-digit Claremont Colleges ID number.

Additional information on the process, the issues, and how faculty can be involved can be found here: http://libguides.libraries.claremont.edu/budget

Prof. Rachel Levy, Department of Mathematics, HMC |
Thurs., April 14th, 4:15 | Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd

Under the supervision of Professor Rachel Levy, undergraduate students from the Dynamic Networks for Aquatic Robots (DYNAR) research group at Harvey Mudd have designed and tested algorithms for coordination and control of small remote control submarines. In a large aquarium they have implemented a three-dimensional algorithm for tracking the submarines with web cameras. Results from physical experiments in the tank are compared to simulations of a mathematical model describing the motion of the submarines as they search for a target. Professor Levy will present her work and some real world applications. This work is conducted in collaboration with Allon Percus (CGU) and Andrea Bertozzi (UCLA). It is funded by CGU and the Office of Naval Research.
