The Singapore University of Technology and Design is Singapore's fourth autonomous university, developed in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology. SUTD's mission is to advance knowledge and nurture technically grounded leaders and innovators to serve societal needs. At SUTD, design as a discipline cuts across the curriculum and provides a novel framework for the research and educational programmes.The University, also in collaboration with Zhejiang University is distinguished by its unique East and West academic programme which incorporates elements of technology, entrepreneurship, management and design thinking. MIT faculty has played a significant role in developing a blueprint for the curriculum, including its structure and the degrees to be offered. SUTD undergraduate students are granted either a Bachelor of Engineering or a Bachelor of Science degrees with a major in either Architecture and Sustainable Design , Engineering Product Development , Engineering Systems Design or Informations Systems and Technology Design . It also offers an MIT-SUTD Dual Masters' Degree Programme; a full-time programme leading to a degree from both MIT and SUTD. SUTD also offers Ph.D in each of its four areas of focus .Unlike traditional schools where students focus on very specialized disciplines, SUTD students are taught to think in a broader scope combining multiple domains. It teaches its students to be creative, not just in the technology and design part, but also to be creative in bringing ideas out of the academic environment into the real world, into the business arena, into the economy and make a difference to the world. SUTD is the only other institution in Singapore apart from Yale-NUS College to follow a holistic admissions process. Wikipedia.

Stream-switching techniques are applied in a content delivery system. A merge frame is generated as a function of bit-rates, distortion, and a piecewise constant operator. Parameters of the piecewise constant operator are selected to optimize the merge frame. Data streams are switched based on bandwidth requirements, switch requests, and throughput of a network. Images are reconstructed based on the merge frames and prediction frames. Reconstructed images are identically reconstructed for any prediction frame based on the merge frame.

The effect of group velocity dispersion and free carrier lifetime on pulse quality and nonlinear phase acquisition is studied in a two-stage pulse compressor on a silicon chip. Appropriately, designing the dispersion in the nonlinear medium enables compressed pulses with more than 90 of the pulse energy confined in the main lobe to be generated. Free carrier lifetime is observed to impact nonlinear phase acquisition in the single pulse regime. The pulse compression factor decreases monotonically as the pulse repetition rate increases. Conditions for efficient compression at high repetition rates in the absence of free carrier quenching techniques are discussed. © 2012 American Institute of Physics. Source

We present a theoretical framework for understanding nonbinary, nonindependent percolation on networks with general degree distributions. The model incorporates a partially functional (PF) state of nodes so that both intensity and extensity of error are characterized. Two connected nodes in a PF state cannot sustain the load and therefore break their link. We give exact solutions for the percolation threshold, the fraction of giant cluster, and the mean size of small clusters. The robustness-fragility transition point for scale-free networks with a degree distribution pkk-α is identified to be α=3. The analysis reveals that scale-free networks are vulnerable to targeted attack at hubs: a more complete picture of their Achilles' heel turns out to be not only the hubs themselves but also the edges linking them together. © 2014 American Physical Society.

According to various embodiments, a method for manufacturing a lens may be provided. The method may include: determining a NURBS (non-uniform rational basis spline) representation of a provisional lens geometry; simulating ray trajectories in a lens with the provisional lens geometry based on the NURBS representation; determining a final lens geometry based on the simulated ray trajectories; and producing a lens with the final lens geometry.
