Evolving board evaluation fuctions for a complex strategy game
The development of board evaluation functions for complex strategy games has been approached in a variety of ways. The analysis of game interactions is recognized as a valid analogy to common real-world problems, which often present difficulty in designing algorithms to solve them. Genetic programming, as a branch of evolutionary computation,provides advantages over traditional algorithms in solving these complex real-world problems in speed, robustness and flexibility. This thesis attempts to a

3.032 Mechanical Behavior of Materials (MIT)
Here we will learn about the mechanical behavior of structures and materials, from the continuum description of properties to the atomistic and molecular mechanisms that confer those properties to all materials. We will cover elastic and plastic deformation, creep, and fracture of materials including crystalline and amorphous metals, ceramics, and (bio)polymers, and will focus on the design and processing of materials from the atomic to the macroscale to achieve desired mechanical behavior.
