Theory of functions of a real variable
I have taught the beginning graduate course in real variables and functional analysis three times in the last five years, and this book is the result. The course assumes that the student has seen the basics of real variable theory and point set topology. The elements of the topology of metrics spaces are presented (in the nature of a rapid review) in Chapter I. The course itself consists of two parts: 1) measure theory and integration, and 2) Hilbert space theory, especially the spectral theorem

With the exception of orchestral performances and truly "unplugged" concerts, today's music has evolved into a very hi-tech industry. It takes elements from many disciplines, including computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering, mathematics, and physics. Because music technology encompasses everything from audio compression and encoding to advanced sound equipment, this Topic in Depth has quite a broad scope.A decent introduction to some aspects of music technology (1) mainly deals

Daisyworld Stella Activity
Daisyworld model is a very simple planet that has only two species of life on its surface - white and black daisies, and bare ground. Daisyworld is a good example of homeostasis and was first proposed by James Lovelock as a plausible example of his Gaia hypothesis. The Daisyworld activity helps students build a Stella model of Daisyworld from scratch. After constructing the model they perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.

Three forces on a glider
A glider is a special kind of aircraft that has no engine. Paper airplanes are the most obvious example, but gliders come a wide range of sizes. Toy gliders, made of balsa wood or Styrofoam, are an excellent way for students to study the basics of aerodynamics. This resource discussed the historical applications of the glider design, its comparison to powered air vehicles, and its ability to generate lift.
