" This course covers the fundamentals of astrodynamics, focusing on the two-body orbital initial-value and boundary-value problems with applications to space vehicle navigation and guidance for lunar and planetary missions, including both powered flight and midcourse maneuvers. Other topics include celestial mechanics, Kepler's problem, Lambert's problem, orbit determination, multi-body methods, mission planning, and recursive algorithms for space navigation. Selected applications from the Apollo, Space Shuttle, and Mars exploration programs are also discussed."

This course provides a rigorous introduction to fundamentals of random matrix theory motivated by engineering and scientific applications while emphasizing the informed use of modern numerical analysis software. Topics include Matrix Jacobians, Wishart Matrices, Wigner's Semi-Circular laws, Matrix beta ensembles, free probability and applications to engineering, science, and numerical computing. Lectures will be supplemented by reading materials and expert guest speakers, emphasizing the breadth of applications that rely on random matrix theory and the current state of the art. Additional topics will be decided based on the interests of the students. No particular prerequisites are needed though a proficiency in linear algebra and basic probability will be assumed. A familiarity with MATLABĺ¨ will also be useful.
