Medio Ambiente y Sostenibilidad
La asignatura Medio Ambiente y Sostenibilidad tiene como objetivo general que los estudiantes adquieran una visión global de la contaminación ambiental atendiendo a sus orígenes y problemática, así como de los principios de la sostenibilidad y de las tecnologías medioambientales y su aplicación. Con esta asignatura se pretende que los estudiantes tomen conciencia de los problemas medioambientales, en particular de los derivados de las actividades industriales, y conozcan las estrategias
Hypoeutectoid steel, normalised at 1100°C
A hypoeutectoid alloy (carbon composition less than eutectoid). The first phase formed upon cooling from the austenite phase field is proeutectoid ferrite. Due to the lower solubility of carbon in ferrite, carbon is partitioned into the remaining austenite. At the eutectoid point the remaining carbon enriched austenite transforms to pearlite (a mixture of ferrite and cementite) which is the darker region of the micrograph. The proportion of pearlite is dependent upon the overall composition. The
Weather or Not - Climate
The Weather or Not video series uses weather forecasting and the science of meteorology as a context for learning. This "Climate" episode zooms into space to investigate the relationship between the sun and the earth. You will also learn about the earth's axis tilt, spin and rotation to discover how these affect climate and the seasons. Timing is off between audio and visual. Run timje 08:46.
The biology of the 21st Century
Professor Denis Noble, who was a pioneer in the field of systems biology building the first working mathematical model of the heart and has been given an honorary degree at Warwick, talks about how the future study of biology will change in the 21st Century.
What Is Existentialism? (Part 4 of 4)

The "Human Sciences" on Trial in Iran [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Ali Mirsepassi | Why the "human sciences" have become the target of a major government crackdown in Iran today. This talk will focus thematically upon a specific conceptual shift. Today’s religious-reformist intellectuals articulating Iran’s contemporary mass movement for democracy draw their vision of change from the social sciences rather than philosophy, reflecting complex underlying conceptual-theoretical and organizational-practical shifts since the long struggle o

North Texas Earthquakes Study
SMU scientists are studying the cause of a recent series of earthquakes in North Texas. They hosted media on Feb. 7, 2014, to explain the study. The primary research goal will be to conduct the data analysis needed to improve identification of earthquake location and characterize the size, mechanisms and accelerations associated with the events.

18.735 Double Affine Hecke Algebras in Representation Theory, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Mathemati
Double affine Hecke algebras (DAHA), also called Cherednik algebras, and their representations appear in many contexts: integrable systems (Calogero-Moser and Ruijsenaars models), algebraic geometry (Hilbert schemes), orthogonal polynomials, Lie theory, quantum groups, etc. In this course we will review the basic theory of DAHA and their representations, emphasizing their connections with other subjects and open problems.

11.362 Environmental Management Practicum: Brownfield Redevelopment (MIT)
Through site-specific client-based work, this course will allow students to materially contribute to redevelopment decision-making regarding a former inner-city industrial site. The course will focus on generating and analyzing pragmatic redevelopment scenarios given the issues of brownfields and environmental contamination, community preferences, regulatory constraints and economic realities. The course is designed along two parallel and mutually reinforcing educational tracks: Field learning
