One of my better UCLA professors. I took estimation theory from him in 1971. Kung was also my thesis advisor. I worked full time at Hughes Aircraft in El Segundo where he was a part-time consultant.
Thesis which I submitted in the autumn of 1972 was "a numerical study of minimum probability of error expression in a digital communication system with intersymbol interference".
In it, I used APL, a programming language which featured concise code for array manipulation, which later on I performed in C/C++ and C#. (I still program with C#, but I left C in the 20th century.)
I was stuck at one point and finally figured out what the problem was while I was watching "Godfather" in Westwood Village. Afterward, I walked up to the Medical Center where there was a room full of IBM Selectric typewriters modified for use with an IBM mainframe in the Boelter Hall Math Annex. I made modifications to my software which worked... and voila! I was over the hump and submitted my thesis way before the deadline. I owed it all to the piano rift performed by Carmine Coppola in "The Godfather".
(I don't remember the course numbers from '72. They were upper division and grad level courses. I checked EE599 just to fill in the required field.)
