Paper and Project Update

Post date: Oct 26, 2015 5:34:50 PM

Please plan to read the "Nonconservativity and Noncommutativity in Locomotion" for Wednesday's class. It is somewhat long, but most of the first half is mathematical background and review at this point, so you can simply scan it and just review the mathematics that you need. The bulk of the material appears in Section 5 and onward.

In our Projects Google spreadsheet, please add two links to a short abstract and a preliminary figure. The latter can be something like a model of the system that you will study, for example. We recommend that you do both using Google docs, either writing and drawing directly on Google (Documents and Drawings are handy) or uploading a file and linking it there.

For those of you who have not signed up or pinned down a project yet, please try to narrow down your ideas or talk to a group that you are interested in joining as soon as possible.
