You are now a licensed snob, congratulations.

as if i needed to be any more arrogant than i already am. :)

 

By the way, dissertation in one month, not too shabby.

wrote it that quick, yes. i spend over a year working on it, however. some of the writeup was left over from my comprehensive last april, but i had to retool that pretty significantly anyway. i can write, if nothing else, very quickly. too bad i can't do creative writing stuff... it's all technical.

I just poured a highball full of Knob Creek with two ice cubes and a splash of 7up. I propose a toast to Dr. Taks. Heres to you and all the holes in your stomach! :huh:

Congrats.

 

Thesis Topic?

 

Now the staff members will treat you like a human for a little while.

 

PostDoc?

As dark is the absence of light, so evil is the absence of good.

If you would destroy evil, do good.

 

Evil cannot be perfected. Thank God.

no post doc work other than a paper my advisor and i have planned. i'm apparently the de-facto comm-lab instructor now, so i get to teach a 1 credit hour class once per year. i'd like to pick up the actual comm class as well, but they have the new assoc. professor teaching that.

 

my dissertation was a DS-CDMA receiver. i had an adaptive channel estimator and an adaptive symbol detector combined. DS-CDMA is what most US cellular phones use.

Congrats taks. :) Just upload it directly from the CD, I guess?

the insert image link wants a URL and does not provide any "browse" option to pick up a local file.

Go to Add Reply (not Fast), then on the bottom right, use the Upload menu to upload the said file, then insert it into the post. Or I must be misunderstanding a lot of things here. :/

ah, i'll give that a try when i get home, tigranes. that's about what my hood and gown looked like meshugger, but the gown had black velvet stripes, not blue. i got to keep the hood (which they pinned on during the ceremony) and mortarboard/tassle. the gown was a rental.

 

115 pages total, including all fluff such as title, lists of tables and figures, copyright page, etc. the actual meat of the writeup describing what i did was probably 30-40 pages with another 30-40 explaining all the simulations. if i had another 6 months, it would have been 200 pages or so since there were a lot of things i wanted to show that i did not have time for.

 

basically, my idea was a means for estimating multipath (aka channel estimation) coupled with a means for adaptively detecting symbols (not unlike an equalizer) in the presence of multiple access interference (multiple cell phones talking to the same base station, for example).
