18.369 Mathematical Methods in Nanophotonics (MIT)
Find out what solid-state physics has brought to Electromagnetism in the last 20 years. This course surveys the physics and mathematics of nanophotonics—electromagnetic waves in media structured on the scale of the wavelength. Topics include computational methods combined with high-level algebraic techniques borrowed from solid-state quantum mechanics: linear algebra and eigensystems, group theory, Bloch's theorem and conservation laws, perturbation methods, and coupled-mode theories, to u

Of Mice and Children: Unraveling the Effects of a Technologized Infancy
Dimitri's passion is developing actionable strategies to optimize the cognitive, emotional, and social development of preschool children. The pursuit of that passion has taken him from the exam room, to the community and most recently to cages of newborn mice. Christakis' laboratory focuses on the effects of early environmental influences on child health and development. He speaks frequently to international audiences of pediatricians, parents, and educators about the impact of early learning

2.1.1 A day in my life
Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.

6 Summary

Session 1

Scattering is a process in which incident particles interact with a target and are changed in nature, number, speed or direction of motion as a result. Tunnelling is a quantum phenomenon in which particles that are incident on a classically impenetrable barrier are able to pass through the barrier and e

Three essays on bank efficiency
Since commercial banks play important roles in the financial markets, it is important to evaluate whether banks operate efficiently. Moreover, given increased competition from non-bank financial institutions, commercial banks should operate more efficiently than they did previously. Commercial banks might operate more efficiently if they have superior information. If this is true, bank size should not matter to the operation of the bank. Thus, as long as the bank has superior information, it wil

Drawing a Histogram
This lesson takes provided data about mass to create a histogram about the data.  While the lesson relates to a previous experiment, it still provides good step by step instruction on how to draw a histogram.  Graph paper will be needed to follow along and complete the lesson along with the instructor.  It is hard at times to see what the instructor is writing because the writing is very small.

L'image et le texte en médecine (video)

Jusqu'au 19ème siècle, il y avait une sacralisation du texte: l'imagerie médicale ne pesait pas sur la décision. En 1972, l'image numérique sera sacralisée avec le scanner. Aujourd'hui, c'est l'image cellulaire qui triomphe. Il faut donc élaborer et pratiquer une nouvelle médecine.

6.263J Data Communication Networks (MIT)
6.263J / 16.37J focuses on the fundamentals of data communication networks. One goal is to give some insight into the rationale of why networks are structured the way they are today and to understand the issues facing the designers of next-generation data networks. Much of the course focuses on network algorithms and their performance. Students are expected to have a strong mathematical background and an understanding of probability theory. Topics discussed include: layered network architecture,

MAS.450 Holographic Imaging (MIT)
MAS.450 is a laboratory course about holography and holographic imaging. This course teaches holography from a scientific and analytical point of view, moving from interference and diffraction to imaging of single points to the display of three-dimensional images. Using a "hands-on" approach, students explore the underlying physical phenomena that make holograms work, as well as designing laboratory setups to make their own images. The course also teaches mathematical techniques that allow the b
