Training Seminars (Fall 2009):

In this seminar, we discuss some basic research work for our DoD research project on Radar Image Reconstruction. The text book used for the seminar is:

Training
Seminar (Summer 2009): PDEs Analysis and Radar (Fridays, 3pm-6pm, MAGC
1.212)

In this seminar, we deliver PDEs lectures to our DoD program students and
direct them to do preliminary work for our DoD research project on Radar Image
Reconstruction. The text book used for the seminar is: *Partial
Differential Equations* by **David Colton .**

Training
Seminar (Spring 2009): PDEs Analysis and Radar Imaging (Fridays, 1pm-3pm,
MAGC 1.302)

This seminar is to mentor the graduate students participating in our DoD
research project on PDE Analysis and Radar Image Reconstruction to enhance
achievement level and retention rate here at UTPA. The program students are
anticipated to apply mathematical and engineering methodology to deal with
radar imaging problems appearing in military, air force and naval affairs. The
text book used for the seminar is: *Synthetic Aperture Radar Signal
Processing with MATLAB Algorithms***by Mehrdad Soumekh.
