6.838 Algorithms for Computer Animation (MIT)
Animation is a compelling and effective form of expression; it engages viewers and makes difficult concepts easier to grasp. Today's animation industry creates films, special effects, and games with stunning visual detail and quality. This graduate class will investigate the algorithms that make these animations possible: keyframing, inverse kinematics, physical simulation, optimization, optimal control, motion capture, and data-driven methods. Our study will also reveal the shortcomings of thes

Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,The segment provides examples of probing questions about phenomenon to determine what

Rethinking the Creative Architectural Design in the Digital Culture
This paper tries to examine the effects of emerging digital tools in architectural design. Digital tools are not only practical instruments used for drawing, but they also affect design thinking. As the ones that are used in architectural design are mostly commercial, one can say that design thinking, the identity of the design and the creativity of the designer are defined by the companies which develop these tools. Therefore architects have to be able to manipulate these tools and personalize

Myasthenia Gravis - Cranial Nerves Exam - Facial Nerve (CN VII) Sub-exam - Patient 11
Patient is a 52-year-old African American male who initially presented with diplopia and dysphagia about five years ago. Serologic testing demonstrated antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor, and repetitive nerve stimulation testing showed a decrement in CMAP at slow frequency repetitive stimulation. He now presents with generalized myasthenia, dysarthria, dysphagia and diplopia during a pyridostigmine-holiday for Tensilon testing.
