Writing The Thesis Or Dissertation

The PI observer and PI Kalman filter has been shown to estimate and reject disturbancefor systems with known parameters and when the injection point of all disturbances areknown. In the presence of faulty actuators, a observer-based regulator with integralaction can out perform even a LQR using full state feedback.

The Thesis/Dissertation Defense

Stage 2 - Preparing the Proposal

Stage 3- Conducting the Research

Do not keep back-up close to the computer in case the hypothetical thief who fancies your computer decides that s/he could use some disks or membory as well.

Stage 4- Writing the Research Paper*

Do not keep back-up close to the computer in case the hypothetical thief who fancies your computer decides that s/he could use some disks or membory as well.

Stage 5- Sharing the Research Outcomes with Others

These key words provide a skeleton for much of your chapter outline.

this also makes PhDs somewhat odd compared with NaturalScience or Engineering....where research tends to explore naturalsystems' behviour (or even artificial systems, but relatively simpleones made out of natural components)we tend to use abstract tools, usually - analysis, simulation,etc....although sometimes we "do classical research" throughmeasurements.....but first, we build our virtual system, and then haveto build a virtual measurement toolkit, and then use it.....

I care much more about the content and structure (story).

we also use autmoatic systems to allow us to analyze the resultssometimes, so we can cope with exploring the large design space of avirtual system in a phd lifetime - physcists, chemists and engineers (e.g.

However, I do feel strongly about the length.

Another important datapoint: 2-3 conference, or 1-2 journal papers inrespectable (ACM, IEEE, IOP like) places are good enough for chapters4,5,6, and therefore the core of a PhD - testing by publication is aVERY good defense (or defence).

(this is often the biggest problemfaced by students).

11. What is a proposal anyway? A good proposal should consist of thefirst three chapters of the dissertation. It should begin with a statementof the problem/background information (typically Chapter I of the dissertation),then move on to a review of the literature (Chapter 2), and conclude witha defining of the research methodology (Chapter 3). Of course, it shouldbe written in a future tense since it is a proposal. To turn a good proposalinto the first three chapters of the dissertation consists of changingthe tense from future tense to past tense (from "This is what I wouldlike to do" to "This is what I did") and making any changesbased on the way you actually carried out the research when compared tohow you proposed to do it. Often the intentions we state in our proposalturn out different in reality and we then have to make appropriate editorialchanges to move it from proposal to dissertation.

The introduction to my thesis has the following sections:

He explores both the patterns ofprose, from the large-scale design of completed text to the specificstructures of component phrases and sentences, and the psychologicaland technical problems the writer encounters in prose composition.

They form the skeleton to which other elements adhere.
