1.017 Computing and Data Analysis for Environmental Applications (MIT)
This subject is a computer-oriented introduction to probability and data analysis. It is designed to give students the knowledge and practical experience they need to interpret lab and field data. Basic probability concepts are introduced at the outset because they provide a systematic way to describe uncertainty. They form the basis for the analysis of quantitative data in science and engineering. The MATLAB® programming language is used to perform virtual experiments and to analyze real-wo
2.035 Special Topics in Mathematics with Applications: Linear Algebra and the Calculus of Variations
This course forms an introduction to a selection of mathematical topics that are not covered in traditional mechanical engineering curricula, such as differential geometry, integral geometry, discrete computational geometry, graph theory, optimization techniques, calculus of variations and linear algebra. The topics covered in any particular year depend on the interest of the students and instructor. Emphasis is on basic ideas and on applications in mechanical engineering. This year, the subject
18.336 Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations (MIT)
This graduate-level course is an advanced introduction to applications and theory of numerical methods for solution of differential equations. In particular, the course focuses on physically-arising partial differential equations, with emphasis on the fundamental ideas underlying various methods.
Institutul naţional pentru studierea Holocaustului din România
The website 'Elie Wiesel' National Institute for the Study of Holocaust in Romania (INSHR) reflects the activities of this research institute founded in 2005 in Bucharest, Romania. The website is in Romanian with a good but incomplete English version. The site presents the aims of the institute of collecting information about the Holocaust but also of disseminating the research results by creating learning materials for teaching. The section on publications introduce the monographs and testimoni

4.273 Introduction to Design Inquiry (MIT)
Introduction to Design Inquiry explores the nature and exercise of design intelligence. It aims to open avenues for further research and, along them, to open vistas on the teaching of design and on more mindful professional design practices. We see design as processes located in individuals and groups, shaped by the formation and experience of each individual and by the characteristics of the groups that play a role in the design process. People construct the worlds they inhabit out of what they

The Social Robot
This 12 minute video is about robots, and robots created with human personality, to make interactions with them easier. They adopt cute faces or realistic faces with human emotions and the video looks at how they might be used in the future. A good starting point for a debate on what the use of robots might be in the future.
Prof Philip Steadman (UCL) on film 'Tim's Vermeer'
In 2001 Professor Philip Steadman (UCL Bartlett School of Graduate Studies and the UCL Energy Institute) published a book called Vermeer's Camera, about the evidence for the great seventeenth-century Dutch painter using a camera obscura to make his pictures. Fast forward 13 years and the original ideas in the book have provided the foundation for the BAFTA-nominated documentary Tim's Vermeer.

Taxing dirty energy
Only 10-15 per cent of the population is motivated strongly to go green if it's not in their own economic best interests. Dr Chris Hope explains that business is key to creating a green economy. Steps are required to ensure that businesses, looking for value-for-money in their energy supply and use, end up with a clean and green product. This can be done by making sure that anything that is dirty has a tax on it to recognise the pollution, the damage and impact caused by that dirty energy. If th
