Courses numbered 5xx are graduate level. Courses numbered 4xx and below are undergraduate. A note to UBC students: as of the last time I checked, you could count up to two courses from the other category toward your degree (eg grad courses for undergraduates, ugrad courses for grad students). Check with your advisor and the instructor for permission. I am generally quite happy to have students take courses at either level.
I try to keep the graduate course links live, but the undergraduate course links for older courses may point to more recent offerings.
My research agenda includes:
For those interested in experimenting with Level Set Methods for solving timedependent HamiltonJacobi PDEs, such as those that arise in dynamic implicit surfaces and reachability, I have released: A Toolbox of Level Set MethodsI do not yet have any public code for direct approximation of static (timeindependent) HamiltonJacobi PDEs, such as those that arise in robotic path planning. However, here are some slides discussing the relationship between path planning and HamiltonJacobi PDEs, various classes of algorithms for approximating the resulting PDEs, and a few extensions on which I have worked: Dynamic Programming Algorithms for Planning and Robotics in Continuous Domains and the HamiltonJacobi Equation. These slides were presented at the Fast Marching Method: Theoretical Underpinnings and Applications to Robotics tutorial at IROS 2008. 
Many of my academic publications are available online. Where permitted by the publishers, I have provided links to selfarchived postprints (if I have one) as well as the published versions (the latter usually require subscriptions). If the paper you want is not hyperlinked or if you are unable to access the publisher's web site, please email me and I may be able to provide a copy by other means.
