15.023J Global Climate Change: Economics, Science, and Policy (MIT)
This class introduces scientific, economic, and ecological issues underlying the threat of global climate change, and the institutions engaged in negotiating an international response. It also develops an integrated approach to analysis of climate change processes, and assessment of proposed policy measures, drawing on research and model development within the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.
12.003 Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics (MIT)
This undergraduate class is designed to introduce students to the physics that govern the circulation of the ocean and atmosphere. The focus of the course is on the processes that control the climate of the planet.AcknowledgmentsProf. Ferrari wishes to acknowledge that this course was originally designed and taught by Prof. John Marshall.

SP.287 Kitchen Chemistry (MIT)
This seminar is designed to be an experimental and hands-on approach to applied chemistry (as seen in cooking). Cooking may be the oldest and most widespread application of chemistry and recipes may be the oldest practical result of chemical research. We shall do some cooking experiments to illustrate some chemical principles, including extraction, denaturation, and phase changes.
18.102 Introduction to Functional Analysis (MIT)
This is a undergraduate course. It will cover normed spaces, completeness, functionals, Hahn-Banach theorem, duality, operators; Lebesgue measure, measurable functions, integrability, completeness of L-p spaces; Hilbert space; compact, Hilbert-Schmidt and trace class operators; as well as spectral theorem.

11.481J Analyzing and Accounting for Regional Economic Growth (MIT)
This course focuses on alternative ways in which the issues of growth, restructuring, innovation, knowledge, learning, and accounting and measurements can be examined, covering both industrialized and emerging countries. We give special emphasis to recent transformations in regional economies throughout the world and to the implications these changes have for the theories and research methods used in spatial economic analyses. Readings will relate mainly to the United States, but we cover pertin

SP.713 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT)
2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before. Recreate these new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques Galileo had on hand, while you reflect on the times and works of Galileo. What was it like to improvise new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques on hand? What do we notice? What surprises us? How can we relate to past experience and ideas
Energy efficiency in the built environment
Energy efficiency in the built environment: Professor Peter Guthrie discusses some of the barriers to improving energy efficiency measures in the built environment. He explains that a staggering 75% of existing buildings in the UK were built before 1975 and that the vast majority of these will still be in use in 2050. The technologies to retro-fit these buildings and improve their energy efficiency already exists. What is needed, he argues, is a real-time change of behaviour. Working with the pr
Oiling the wheels of productivity
The performance and efficiency of the world's national oil companies - i.e. those still wholly under government ownership - could be increased very dramatically by privatising them, new research finds. The results of such performance improvements would be staggering, explains Dr Michael Pollitt, and could see global oil and gas production in the first year alone increase by 2.7 million barrels of oil equivalent per day - which is more than all of France's current oil and gas consumption.
Still banning that Bomb: Thinking about nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament
Friday 31 July, 3.30-5.00pm Seminar Room 1.03, Ground Floor, Hedley Bull Centre, Garran Rd, ANU campus Ron Huisken is Senior Fellow at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, Australian National University. He spent a number of years at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute and the UN Centre for Disarmament Affairs before joining government (1981-2001), predominantly the Departments of Foreign Affairs and Trade and of Defence. He returned to academia in 2001 with research intere

In aerospace problems, fully turbulent flow and the transition to and from that state are of both practical and fundamental scientific interest. Turbulence has remained 'the chief outstanding difficulty o
Freilich Foundation Eminent Lecturer Series: Women & War Lecture 3 - Veiling Gender Justice: Religio
Veiling Gender Justice: Religion and Reconstruction Presented by: Dr Bina D'Costa Research Fellow, Centre for International Governance and Justice, RegNet ANU This lecture argues that gender justice becomes a politicised issue in counter productive ways in conflict zones. While the control of women and the patriarchal family is central to extremist ideologies, women's vulnerability and insecurity increase in times of conflicts not only from the actions of the religious forces but also from 'prog
Thailand in Crisis vodcast series: Episode 01
