[Expand Summary]
The present collection utilizes a number of user defined mprograms, in combination with built in MATLAB functions, for solving a variety of probabilistic problems. These mfiles are included as text files in the collection New Prob mfiles. We use the term mfunction to designate a userdefined function as distinct from the basic MATLAB functions which are part of the MATLAB package. An mprocedure (or sometimes a procedure) is an mfile containing a set of MATLAB commands which carry out a prescribed set of operations. Generally, these will prompt for (or assume) certain data upon which the procedure is carried out. We use the term mprogram (or often mfile) to refer to either an mfunction or an mprocedure. Although most of the mprograms were written for MATLAB version 4.2, they work for versions 5.1, 5.2, and 7.04. The latter versions offer some new features which may make more efficient implementation of some of the mprograms, and which make possible some new ones. With one exception (so noted), these are not exploited in this collection, because of the pedagogical value of dealing with explicitly developed procedures whose dependence on basic MATLAB is displayed. These programs, with perhaps some exceptions, also run on the MATLAB alternatives SCILAB and OCTAVE. Users of these latter programs should be able to make appropriate adjustments if needed. In addition to the mprograms there is a collection of mfiles for specific problems with properly formatted data which can be entered into the workspace by calling the file. These mfiles come from a variety of sources ( e.g., exams or problem sets, hence the odd names) and may be useful for examples and exercises. This collection is in the text file New Prob mfiles.

Summary:
This is our ELEC 301 Project for the Fall 2004 semester. We implemented a uniform linear array of six microphones. We then sampled the data and analyzed it in LabVIEW in order to to listen in one direction. We also explored listening for a particular frequency and its direction.

[Expand Summary]
These modules capture the broad array of activities conducted by vertically integrated research groups comprised of member of the Mathematics, Statistics, and Computational and Applied Mathematics departments at Rice University and supported by a VIGRE (Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences) award from the National Science Foundation. VIGRE working groups are known as PFUGs. Pronounced like "fugue," the acronym derives from the groups' composition of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students. The name derives from the musical meaning for fugue, "an idea that is introduced by one voice and developed by others."

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI textbooks define the field as "the study and design of intelligent agents"[1] where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success.[2] John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1956,[3] defines it as "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines."[4]
