The Compositional and Parallel Real Time System (CoPaRTS) group is a research group in the Department of Computer Science, College of Engineering, Wayne State University. CoPaRTS is directed by Nathan W. Fisher. This group is an important part of LaST: Laboratory for Sustainable computing. CoPaRTS focuses primarily on the areas of scheduling algorithm, schedulability analysis, compositional real-time systems, real-time resource allocation in parallel and distributed systems, and sustainable computing.



Research Interest

  1. Real Time Systems
  2. Algorithm Analysis
  3. Game Theory
  4. Distributed/Parallel Computing
  5. Thermal Controlled Feedback Systems
