Living Beyond 100: Can We, and What If We Do?
Shane C. Burgess, Dean, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona, presented this lecture on January 24, 2012. Abstract: For most of human history, what we today consider a "reasonable life span" was a significant achievement for the average human. This remains the case in many parts of the world, but for westerners in particular, the magic age "100" is becoming a milestone to which many now realistically aspire. Our science has allowed us to immortalize cells and is givi

Algebra Problem of the Week
Algebra problems from a variety of sources, including textbooks, math contests, NCTM books, and puzzle books, and real-life situations, designed to reflect different levels of difficulty. The goal is to challenge students with non-routine problems and encourage them to put their solutions into words. Different types of problems are used to reach a diverse group of algebra students. A a href= /pow/support/ Teacher Support page/a is available for some problems.

The Limits of Science
Lord Rees of Ludlow delivers the 2011 Romanes Lecture. Telescopes reveal the remote universe; accelerators probe the subatomic world. Thanks to such instruments, astronomers have established, in outline, how our cosmos has evolved from a still-mysterious beginning more than 13 billion years. Billions more years - and perhaps even an infinite time - lie ahead of it. But 99 percent of scientists focus neither on the very small nor the very large, but on the even greater complexities of our everyda

Discrete Stochastic Processes, Spring 2011
Discrete stochastic processes are essentially probabilistic systems that evolve in time via random changes occurring at discrete fixed or random intervals. This course aims to help students acquire both the mathematical principles and the intuition necessary to create, analyze, and understand insightful models for a broad range of these processes. The range of areas for which discrete stochastic-process models are useful is constantly expanding, and includes many applications in engineering, ph
