You know how to program, but do you know how computers really work? How do millions of transistors
together to form a complete computing system? This bottom-up course begins with transistors and
computer hardware structures, continues with low-level programming using primitive machine
finishes with an introduction to the C programming language. This course is a broad introduction to
aspects of computer systems architecture and serves as the foundation for subsequent computer
In the frame of the Directed Reading Program I studied Principal Component Analysis as a means for
transformation of data. I researched how the best ellipsoid can be fit on the given data as well as
linear algebraic method to compute
the PCA and went through the determination of the underlying components and reducing the number of
components. It is also important to underline the theory behind the Singular Value Decomposition
specifically, how to compute the SVD and what we can expect as the result. Finally, I went into
about how to use SVD to use PCA and what the benefits and disadvantages of directly computing PCA
the use of SVD.
Python is an elegant, concise, and powerful language that is useful for tasks large and small. Python
