"Performance Engineering of Software Systems, Fall 2009"
" Modern computing platforms provide unprecedented amounts of raw computational power.

3 DNA: Spot the difference

Here we look at DNA, the molecule which contains the instructions for making each living creature. It is contained within the genes of every individual living thing on Earth. Closely related creatures have DNA that is very similar, and distantly related creatures have DNA that is very different. By looking at how similar or different their DNA molecules are, we can see how closely related two species are.

Great Zoom out of Tucson, AZ: The University of Arizona Football Stadium
Using data from different spacecraft and some powerful computer technology, visualizers at the Goddard Space Flight Center present you with a collection of American cities in a way you have never seen them before. Starting with our camera high above the Earth, we rush in towards the surface at what would be an impossible speed for any known vehicle. Passing though layers of atmosphere, the colors of our destinations shimmer with their own unique characteristics, and suddenly we find ourselves fl

Where the Shape of the Egg Comes From?
The shape of the egg is postulated to be the consequence of opposing forces relative to the location of perspective of points that define the spaces of its' contents. For example, net velocities of motion of light emitted in two planes plus the velocity of motion of its' source would be expected to be decreased in the case when the direction of the light beam is opposed to the direction of motion to cause the blunt edge and increased when it aligns with the direction of motion of its' source t

Introducción a la Economía de la Empresa (2011)
Esta asignatura constituye la primera toma de contacto del alumno con el mundo de la empresa, lo que condiciona los objetivos didácticos de la misma. Ello requiere integrar en un mismo curso materiales pedagógicos descriptivos y analíticos, procurando no caer en un exceso de abstracción y formalismo que distancie al alumno de la realidad, o por el contrario, en un exceso de descripción que carezca de capacidad interpretativa. En definitiva, se plantea la necesidad de facilitar la descripci
