Compilers

Yannis Smaragdakis - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

In this course we explore the fundamental concepts and techniques behind a compiler: (1) Formal languages: regular languages​​, context-free languages​​, attribute grammars; (2) Meta-tools to create lexical analyzers; (3) Parsing: top-down and bottom-up, error recovery, meta-tools to use and create syntax analyzers; (4) Symbol tables. Semantic analysis: kinds of semantic checking, static type systems, dynamic type checking; (5) Generation of intermediate code; (6) Optimization, register allocation; (7) Generation of object code.

Theory of History

Antonis Liakos - Undergraduate - (A-)
History and Archaeology, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

The course refers to the concept of history and its main theories and methodologies. How does the past turn into history? How do we create cohesive, meaningful histories out of the chaotic events and phenomena of past times? Is history the sole way in which modern societies relate to the past? What is the role of myth, memory, art? What is public history? What is historical experience? Dominant trends in historical thought: Historicism and social history, structuralism and the longues durées, from culture to cultural history, micro-history and social anthropology, mnemonic studies, oral history and psychoanalysis, feminism and gender history, meta-history and the linguistic turn. Postmodernism and the problem of truth. Transnational history and historiography. What "the end of history" means and what are the prospects for historical studies and for historians?

Mobile and Personal Communication Systems

Nikos Passas - Undergraduate - (A-)
Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

It is a lesson of the Communications and Signal Processing sector and related to the subjects of Provisions and Communication Networks and Communication Systems. It is available in 7th (winter) semester with three hours of theory and one hour laboratory. For a better understanding of the course, it would be useful that the student has previously attended at least lessons Networks Networks I and II. The course is organized into two main sections: a) general principles of wireless and cellular systems, and b) a brief description of modern cellular radio systems (with emphasis on GSM systems, UMTS).

Probability and Statistics

Antonis Economou - Undergraduate - (A+)
Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

The objective of the course Probability and Statistics is the development of basic skills for the modeling and mathematical analysis of processes with some kind of randomness. The development of probabilistic thinking is a fundamental component of modern scientific literacy. Its significance has been recognized in a variety of fields. Indeed, apart from the classical applications in the natural sciences, the probabilistic thinking is fundamental for the decision making in health-related issues, for the risk assessment in economic and actuarial problems etc. Moreover, Probability Theory is the prerequisite and foundation of Statistics which is nowadays used widely in the natural, social and economic sciences, as well as in biology and medicine. Probability and Statistics introduces the students in the basic probabilistic models and computational tools, by combining the mathematical approach with conceptual and intuitive understanding. Moreover, it contains a brief introduction to the Classical Statistical Inference, presenting some basic notions and techniques of point estimation, confidence intervals and hypothesis testing. The course is addressed to sophomore (undergraduate 2nd year) students in the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications at the University of Athens. More generally, it is accessible to students in departments of Mathematics, Statistics, the Natural Sciences and Engineering who have a basic background in Calculus.
