This wiki page serves two purposes: First, I keep my course notes for the Advanced Vehicle course (NAME 4177) here, so that the can be easily edited by users. I believe that the AMV field is one where change is so rapid that an annual (or more frequent) update is almost mandatory.
The second purpose is found below the fold, and this is to serve as a repository for unfinished work and thoughts. You may wish to think of this as my personal notebook of ideas. In general, if any of these ideas matures far enough to become a paper or other publication then it will move over to be cited on my Publications page , and will be available to download in PDF (depending on copyright agreements with the publisher.)
So be warned: You are entering a realm of thoughts written on cocktail napkins, sticky notes, and so forth, and 'filed' by dropping them into the electronic equivalent of a manila folder.
