Geometry of nonlinear connections
We show that locally diffeomorphic exponential maps can be defined for any second-order differential equation, and give a (possibly nonlinear) covariant derivative for any (possibly nonlinear) connection. We introduce vertically homogeneous connections as the natural correspondents of homogeneous second-order differential equations. We provide significant support for the prospect of studying nonlinear connections via certain, closely associated secondorder differential equations. One of the mos

Navigating Global Economic and Financial Change
The global economy is experiencing a number of consequential transformations that impact long-standing economic and financial relationships. The resulting change goes well beyond the emergence of a new destination for the global economy; it is also reflected in what is an inevitably bumpy journey that is prone to a series of market accidents and policy mistakes. In his presentation, Mohamed A. El-Erian will discuss the nature of the transformations. He will detail the drivers, and illustrate how

Can International Law Change the World?

Small Business Management
Course Objectives: To provide students with an introduction to the world of small business and an understanding of what is needed to start/run a small business. To state that the small business is the most dominant form of business in society is not an overstatement: over 98% of the businesses in the country employ less than 100 people. Therefore, the majority of you will most likely be either starting, owning, or occupying a significant management position in a small firm sometime in your lifet
