14.128 Dynamic Optimization & Economic Applications (Recursive Methods) (MIT)
The unifying theme of this course is best captured by the title of our main reference book: "Recursive Methods in Economic Dynamics". We start by covering deterministic and stochastic dynamic optimization using dynamic programming analysis. We then study the properties of the resulting dynamic systems. Finally, we will go over a recursive method for repeated games that has proven useful in contract theory and macroeconomics. We shall stress applications and examples of all these techniques throu
Darwin’s Compass: Why the evolution of humans is inevitable
Orthodox neo-Darwinism very much emphasises the random and contingent. Re-run the tape of life, as Steven Jay Gould famously observed, and the outcomes would be utterly different. Terrestrial life maybe, but certainly no humans. They, like tulips and tape-worms, are just another evolutionary fluke. The basis of this is hardly surprising: think of random mutations, massive shifts in the environment, not to mention the odd giant rock dropping out of the sky. Life is on a roller-coaster and is flun

Virtual Cell Animations
The Virtual Cell site contains 20 different animations of cellular and molecular processes aimed at the introductory biology student. Each animation has a flash movie version or a step-by-step walk-through with a voice over explanation. A transcript of the voice over is available. There is a link to a set of Youtube versions of these videos.
Fluids (Part 2)
