Environmental Landfill Management
Lesson objectives: Students will be able to identify what a pollutant is and its affects on the environment. The students will demonstrate knowledge of the vocabulary used in environmental management by the DOE and other federal agencies. The students will attain a basic understanding of waste problems within our environment and the fundamental concepts of the laws of nature, science, physics, and engineering. Students will construct and operate a small-scale leach-bed barrier system.

Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in cou

Warning: Physics Envy May be Hazardous to Your Wealth
In this talk Andrew Lo addresses the problem of finding the right level of abstraction with which to think about economic phenomena. He compares economics to physics, with some surprising results.

For at least several decades economics theorists have assumed that the highest level of abstraction is the best. Lo argues

Quelles machines pour enseigner la langue ?
This paper first presents a history of Computer-Assisted Learning (CAL), setting its origins in the 1920s with the invention of mechanical learning machines. The use of the computer then allowed the development of different types of language learning activities: comprehension tasks, simulations, etc. However, without the contribution of natural language processing (NLP), these activities are of limited use. We address the problem of the integration of NLP in CALL systems while summing up the cha
