Agent Based Modeling of Complex Adaptive Systems (basics)
Our human society consists of many intertwined Large Scale Socio-Technical Systems (LSSTS), such as infrastructures, industrial networks, the financial systems etc. Environmental pressures created by these systems on Earth’s carrying capacity are leading to exhaustion of natural resources, loss of habitats and biodiversity, and are causing a resource and climate crisis. To avoid this sustainability crisis, we urgently need to transform our production and consumption patterns. Given that we, as

Evidence: philosophy of science meets medicine
Editor's note: Unfortunately the last few minutes of the lecture are missing from the podcast. Medics now insist that treatment decisions should be evidence based. Generally this must be right. But evidence based medicine has sometimes got the details wrong: philosophers of science can help. John Worrall is professor of philosophy of science at LSE's Department of Philosophy, Logic and Scientific Method at LSE.
Stephen Toub: Task-Based Asynchrony with Async Stephen Toub goes deep into the design and architecture of the new Async features in C# and VB.NET, which rely heavily on .NET’s Task Parallel Library. You can get an early look at this new async programming model, available as the Async CTP, today!

5.4 Experience – making distinctions based on a tradition and constructing a history Experience, and learning from experience, will be a major theme throughout this course. The model of experiential learning developed by David Kolb is increasingly well known and used as a conceptual basis for the design of all sorts of processes from curricula to consultancies (Figure 15). In itself, the model is powerful but it does not address what is meant by experience or learning. In what follows, I want to provide a b

7.3.1 Library-based methods for demonstrating an interaction between proteins
In this unit we explore how proteins are the 'doers' of the cell. They are huge in number and variety and diverse in structure and function, serving both the structural building blocks and the functional machinery of the cell. Just about every process in every cell requires specific proteins. The basic principles of protein structure and function which are reviewed in this unit are crucial to understanding how proteins perform their various roles.
