This course focuses on evolution of contemporary politics and economics. The subject is divided into four parts: Context: historical and strategic perspectives, theoretical issues, and sources and forms of conflict; Continuity: detailed analysis conflicts systems and their persistence, as well as regional competition and recent wars – focusing on specific countries and cases; Complexity: highlighting situation specific strategic gains and losses; and Convergence: focusing future co
HST.951J Medical Decision Support (MIT)
This course presents the main concepts of decision analysis, artificial intelligence and predictive model construction and evaluation in the specific context of medical applications. It emphasizes the advantages and disadvantages of using these methods in real-world systems and provides hands-on experience. Its technical focus is on decision support, knowledge-based systems (qualitative and quantitative), learning systems (including logistic regression, classification trees, neural networks, rou
HST.583 Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis (MIT)
This team-taught multidisciplinary course provides information relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. It begins with in-depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals. Parenchymal and cerebrovascular neuroanatomy and application of sophisticated structural analysis algorithms for segmentation and registration of functional data are discussed. Additional topics include: fMRI experime

TALAT Lecture 2502: Material Aspects of Fire Design
This lecture gives information about characteristic behaviour of aluminium alloys and insulation materials at high temperatures; it describes the philosophy of using aluminium alloy structures under risks of fire; it gives an example of fire risk analysis. General engineering background and some familiarity with TALAT lecture 2501 is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 5205: Plating on Aluminium
This lecture describes the processes of electroless, electrolytic, as well as physical and chemical vapour deposition of metals on the aluminium surface in order to achieve variations in its surface properties for functional and decorative purposes. Some knowledge of the surface properties of metals, metallurgy and electrochemistry of aluminium and familiarity with the subject matter covered in TALAT This lectures 5101, 5102, 5105 is assumed.
Shear bands in stressed polycarbonate
Yielding in glassy polymers often proceeds by a small sheared region propagating through the material. These patterns can be used in the stress analysis of fracture processes. In addition, the colours in the image are the result of birefringence and relate to the strain-induced alignment of the polycarbonate molecules. Because the specimen is below the glass transition temperature of PC (145 °C), the material will relax when the stress is removed and there will be no residual alignment.

Marginal Analysis and Programme Budgeting
Meeting individual health needs and improving the health of populations within a finite budget is a challenge for health systems worldwide. Programme budgeting and marginal analysis (PBMA) is a tool for tackling this, and for putting some science behind the art of managing scarcity and competing demands. This module explores the definitions, tools and practical application of PBMA. Online interactive learning resource from HealthKnowledge website, for Public Health practitioners, healthcare work
