Typical points, invariant measures, and dimension for rational maps on the Riemann sphere
We present three original results for the dynamics of rational maps on the Riemann sphere. Using methods from dimension and ergodic theory, we discuss generalized physical measures and prove their existence for hyperbolic and some parabolic rational maps. This shows that there are sets of typical points for these maps having maximal dimension. We then show that for any NCP rational map, the set of non-typical, or divergence, points is also of maximal dimension. Finally, we examine holomorphic fa
Closing the economic achievement gap: a case study of a successful Kansas secondary school
In spite of efforts at the federal, state, and local levels, the achievement gap has persisted over time. Recent NCLB legislation has brought renewed attention to the achievement gap, forcing schools to address it. Despite the daunting task of mediating the impact of poverty, some schools have made substantial progress in narrowing the achievement gap with low-income students. This qualitative case study of one successful Kansas public secondary school has concluded the caring actions of teacher

6.254 Game Theory with Engineering Applications (MIT)
This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of game theory and mechanism design. Motivations are drawn from engineered/networked systems (including distributed control of wireline and wireless communication networks, incentive-compatible/dynamic resource allocation, multi-agent systems, pricing and investment decisions in the Internet), and social models (including social and economic networks). The course emphasizes theoretical foundations, mathematical tools, modeling, and equilibrium n
GI Diary: Battle of Okinawa part 1 of 3
"Okinawa - At the Emperor's Doorstep" episode from "WWII: GI Diary"..... This old 1978 TV docu-drama was narrated by Lloyd Bridges and told the stories of real soldiers/sailors/pilots and their first-hand experiences in battle. Archival footage and good background music really made the stories come alive.....about 25 episodes were made. Video converted from really old VHS tape.......... This is the story of the invasion and capture of the island of Okinawa in 1945--the last major land battle of
21W.742J Writing About Race (MIT)
In The Souls of Black Folk (1903), the great cultural critic W. E. B. Du Bois wrote that "...the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color line." A century after Du Bois penned those words, most Americans would agree that at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the color line remains one of our most pressing social issues. In this course, we will explore the terrain of race in America by reading the works of writers of color and others concerned with the issue

Historical skills : weights and measurements
Aims to identify and explain some common difficulties in deciphering units of weights, measurements, and money in historical documents. Explores English and Welsh measuring systems, predominantly those used from the late sixteenth and early 17th centuries onwards, and those in force after the Weights and Measures Act of 1824.
