Textbook "Concepts of Modern Physics"  by  Arthur Beiser (McGraw-Hill, Inc.)
Pre-requirement NIL
Course Description The theory of "quanta" emerged at the turn of the 20th century as a fundamental framework for understanding the building blocks of our world, namely atoms, molecules, and subatomic particles. Esoteric as it appeared then, it stands as a necessity not only for exploring the microscopic world but also for the architecture of "nano-scale" materials demanded for highly developed digital communications. This course on "Modern Physics" thus presents basic concepts required of quantum physics, atomic physics, and quantum spectroscopy.  The focus however is on ideas rather than on technical details or practical applications.

 (A Brief List of Topics:)

 1) De Broglie waves
2) Particle diffraction
3) Uncertainty principle
4) Atomic spectra
5) Correspondence principle
6) The laser
7) Wave equation: the Schroedinger equation
8) Particle in a box
9) Tunnel effect

(Assessment Policy:)

There will be some report requirements on the topics mentioned above during the semester. For example, one written report of at most 3000 words on a quantum phenomenon is to be submitted toward the end of the semester. An oral presentation based on the written report is also required. Assessment in this class will take account of this report, attendance rate, and contribution for class discussions at the score proportion of 40%, 30%, and 30%, respectively.

is still increasing. The aim of the lecture is to provide
fundamental criteria for the choice of  numerical methods, give an
overview about some available methods in some fields,
and give ideas about performance-oriented implementation
for such methods. Depending on the background and interest
of the auditory, some subjects can be changed.

1. Simple MATLAB-Synthax
2. How to write better programs
3. Non-numerical methods: Monte-Carlo techniques
4.  Representation of Numbers
5. Elementary numerical analysis: What are numerical errors, and
    how to get "correct" results from calculations "with error"
6. Graphics
7. Introduction to numerical Linear algebra and how to draw a line
through  more than 2 points (or maybe not)
8. Polynomials and Roots
9. Solving ordinary differential equations
10. Performance analysis: Which algorithm take long, which are fast,
    and when does it matter
11.Programming Paradigms: From spaghetti-code to object-orientation,
    and what does one really need in science and engineering

Asessment Policy:
    Homework during the term and project at the
    end of the term, including presentation (In English, for Japanese if
desired in Japanese).

(13) Chaotic and emergent behaviors of interacting systems
(14) Presentations of short project II by students

(Assessment Policy)

Two short projects will be carried out during the course, in each of
which students will apply the concepts and methods discussed in the
classes to some actual systems. Short oral presentation and report
submission will be required for each project. At the end of the
course, a final exam will be carried out in a format of homework
assignment. Assessment will take into account these two project
reports/presentations, final exam, and attendance rate at the score
proportion of 2 x 30%, 30%, and 10%, respectively.

Pre-requirement Electromagnetic Theory
Course Description (Objectives)
A device whose primary purpose is to radiate or receive radio waves is called antenna. Wherever we are, We can see one or two antennas around us that are sending you signals or waiting for you to send signals. The purpose of this course is to enable students to understand the basic concepts of various antennas.

(Outline of Class and Contents)
1. Brief explanatins of various antennas,
2. transmission-line concepts,
3. waveguide concepts,
4. resonator concepts,
5. radiation,
6. antenna pattern calculation,

Textbook Modern Digital and Analog Communication Systems, Third 
Edition by B.P. Lathi (Oxford University Press, 1998)
Pre-requirement Trigonometric identities, Integrals, Fourier series, 
some basic knowledge of probabilities and LCR circuits.
Course Description This course must be taken concurrently with the course "Communications
Theory Laboratory." First two classes will review theory of 
probability and basic knowledge of mathematics that are necessary to 
understand the subjects in the course. They will include all the 
items listed in the Pre-requirement. Students who are not very 
familiar with the knowledge in those basics are strongly encouraged to
concentrate their efforts on acquiring the knowledge during the first
two 
classes. This course together with "Communications Theory Laboratory" 
discusses in depth how digital and analog communication systems work 
in the presence of noise. Topics covered in the course are behavior of
FM systems in noisy channels, probability density functions, 
random variables, the Gaussian PDF, the Rayleigh PDF, the Rice PDF, 
Wiener-Hopf optimum filter, AFK, FSK, PSK, and QAM. Shannon's 
information theory and spread spectrum systems are also included. This
course will cover from chapter 7 up to Chapter 15 in the textbook. 
Chapter 16 (Error correcting codes) will not be included.
