EAS Principles

Visible impact, out of proportion to size

Best faculty attracted to Caltech

Best students enrolled at Caltech

Unique approach, emulated by others

EAS Strategies

Focus research thrusts on selected areas with large potential impact

Hiring plan that balances research opportunities with discipline needs

Exploit the strengths of Caltech and integrate EAS into CIT (85  280)

Support plans for teaching, facilities, outreach, and administration

High Level Strategy
  • Question: How do we continue to maintain a leadership position in engineering and applied science in an increasingly competitive (academic) world?

Lee Center for Advanced Networking
  • Center established in 1998 through the generous support of David Lee
  • Provides seed funding for new research, support for visitors and workshops
  • Ten faculty from five departments: APh, CDS, CS, Ec, EE
  • Serves as a model for other IST centers

Goals

Understand how markets aggregate information

The role of technology in that process

Use that understanding to

Design large-scale, interconnected, information aggregation and decision-making systems

Make markets and organizations efficient and robust

Create new mathematics, algorithms, and technology for markets, business enterprises, and electorates.

Econ/Info: Social and Information Systems Laboratory

Richard Murray, Caltech

math info center for information mathematics
Math/Info: Center for Information Mathematics
  • Goal

Develop a common language for analyzing and synthesizing large scale information systems

  • Requires new mathematics
    • What are the fundamental objects that describe informational rep-resentations?
    • Is there a “dynamics” of infor-mation?
    • What is the best “topology” to use for analyzing information proces-sing systems?
  • Provide glue between other Centers

Devices  Components  Systems  Markets
