Course Summary (Syllabus)
INTERNET MEASUREMENT AND DATA ANALYSIS （Kenjiro Cho）
1. Objectives/Teaching method
In this class, you will learn about data collection and data
analysis methods on the Internet, to obtain knowledge and
understanding of networking technologies and large-scale data analysis.
Each class will provide specific topics where you will learn the
technologies and the theories behind the technologies.
In addition to the lectures, each class includes programming exercises
to obtain data analysis skills through the exercises.
2. Materials/Reading List
The lecture slide materials will be provided online.

4. Assignments/Examination/Grad Eval.
5. Special Note
The prerequisites for the class are basic programming skills and basic
knowledge about statistics.
In order to understand the theories, basic knowledge of algebra and
statistics is required.
In the exercises and assignments, you will need to write programs to
process large data sets, using the Ruby scripting language and the
Gnuplot plotting tool.
To understand the theoretical aspects, you will need basic knowledge
about algebra and statistics. However, the focus of the class is to
understand how mathematics is used for engineering applications.
