An Introduction to Computational Multiphysics: Motivations for Triple-M Modeling
Modern science is increasingly faced with problems of ever greater complexity, straddling across the traditional disciplinary boundaries between physics, chemistry, material science and biology. Computational science is responding to this challenge with a steadfast development of innovative modeling techniques, designed in such a way as to offer an optimal handling of the information transfer procedures connecting the different scales/levels involved in the quantitative description of the aforem
SP.401 Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies (MIT)
This course offers an introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that asks critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, work, medicine and the
Every now and then, the Sun, Earth, and Moon align so that, when viewed from the Earth, the Moon eclipses the Sun's light. Solar eclipses are fairly common -- the Moon will block out some portion of the Sun at least twice a year. However, it is still a special event to be able to witness a total solar eclipse. In this video segment adapted from NASA, learn how solar eclipses happen and why they are so difficult to witness. Closed captioning included. Run time 01:51.
Pathophysiology of Infectious Diseases
Medical Microbiology is a vast and ever expanding complex field. The role of microbes in chronic illness, like coronary disease and arthritis, continues to evolve. For example, in the Emerging Infections and Agents of Biological Warfare Lecture, one will learn that while advances in identification, culture techniques, diagnosis and treatment have led to remarkable improvements in the consequences of infectious diseases worldwide in the past quarter century, newly identified pathogens continue to
Medical genetics involves the application of genetic principles in the practice of medicine. The material in this course encompasses diagnosis and treatment of genetic diseases (such as cancer genetics ), study of inheritance of diseases in families, mapping of disease genes to their chromosome locations, study of the molecular genetics and pathogenesis of inherited disorders, provision of genetic counseling for families, and investigations of methods for gene therapy. Unlike any other field, ge

George Soros on The New Paradigm for Financial Markets
George Soros extends his “theory of reflexivity” from abstraction to application in the realm of investing. His book, The New Paradigm for Financial Markets, offers a timely look at the credit crisis that reached crescendo in 2008. His views fall between prescience and vindication. Nevertheless, he concedes fallibility
The digital architecture of tomorrow
This paper presents an ongoing research project about the development of the materials and fabrication techniques for a fundamentally new class of architectural composite. This type of composite, which is a representative example of an even broader class of smart architectural material, has the potential to change the design and function of an architectural structure or living environment. As of today, this kind of composite does not exist. Once completed, this will be the first technology on i

Faculty Forum Online: The Strange New Worlds of Exoplanets
The study of exoplanets—planets outside the solar system that orbit distant stars—can be portrayed as a single-minded quest for habitable, Earth-like planets. But the most remarkable discoveries have been exoplanets with unanticipated properties that can make habitation impossible. In the first Faculty Forum Online of 2014, Associate Professor Joshua Winn ’94, SM ’94, PhD ’01 described these new worlds—and shared research discoveries about the formation and evolution of planets. Fol
How Does the Digital Environment Change What Architects Do in the Initial Phases of the Design Proce
Some researchers have tried to answer the question: do we need to think differently while designing in terms of the digital environment? This methodological question leads to another question: what is the range of this difference, if there is one? This research investigates the range of changes in how architects conduct and develop the initial design within the digital environment. The role offered by the digital environment in visual design thinking during conceptual designing through shaping:

Urban Advantage Celebrates 10 Years
Last Saturday, we celebrated more than 50,000 New York City middle school students from 177 public schools across all 5 boroughs who took part in the Urban Advantage Science Initiative this school year. Since it began 10 years ago, this pioneering program has linked New York City's students, teachers, and families to 8 major science-based cultural institutions to conduct scientific investigations and inspire science learning. As students and teachers shared their presentations at the American
