Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Fall 2003

This course aims to connect the principles, concepts, and laws/postulates of classical and statistical thermodynamics to applications that require quantitative knowledge of thermodynamic properties from a macroscopic to a molecular level. It covers their basic postulates of classical thermodynamics and their application to transient open and closed systems, criteria of stability and equilibria, as well as constitutive property models of pure materials and mixtures emphasizing molecular-level eff

Ensemble theory; noninteracting classical and quantum systems; cluster expansion for interacting systems, many body quantum mechanics, phase transitions, scaling, renormalisation; nonequilibrium thermodynamics; Boltzmann transport equation

Essentials of Probability and Statistical Inference IV: Algorithmic and Nonparametric Approaches

Introduces the theory and application of modern, computationally-based methods for exploring and drawing inferences from data. Covers re-sampling methods, non-parametric regression, prediction, and dimension reduction and clustering. Specific topics include Monte Carlo simulation, bootstrap cross-validation, splines, local weighted regression, CART, random forests, neural networks, support vector machines, and hierarchical clustering. De-emphasizes proofs and replaces them with extended discussi

Statistical Reasoning II

Statistical Reasoning in Public Health II provides an introduction to selected important topics in biostatistical concepts and reasoning through lectures, exercises, and bulletin board discussions. The course builds on the material in Statistical Reasoning in Public Health I , extending the statistical procedures discussed in that course to the multivariate realm, via multiple regression methods. New topics, such as methods for clinical diagnostic testing, and univariate, bivariate, and multivar

Statistical Reasoning I

Statistical Reasoning in Public Health provides an introduction to selected important topics in biostatistical concepts and reasoning through lectures, exercises, and bulletin board discussions. It represents an introduction to the field and provides a survey of data and data types. Specific topics include tools for describing central tendency and variability in data; methods for performing inference on population means and proportions via sample data; statistical hypothesis testing and its appl

From Algorithms to Z-Scores: Probabilistic and Statistical Modeling in Computer Science

The materials here form a textbook for a course in mathematical probability and statistics for computer science students. Computer science examples are used throughout, in areas such as: computer networks; data and text mining; computer security; remote sensing; computer performance evaluation; software engineering; data management; etc.

Lecture 18: Thermodynamics and Spontaneous Change

5.112 is an introductory chemistry course for students with an unusually strong background in chemistry. Knowledge of calculus equivalent to 18.01 is recommended. Emphasis is on basic principles of atomic and molecular electronic structure, thermodynamics, acid-base and redox equilibria, chemical kinetics, and catalysis. The course also covers applications of basic principles to problems in metal coordination chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological chemistry.

SPSS - Interactive Introduction to SPSS Statistical Software

The SPSS: Interactive Introduction to SPSS Statistical Software Module is designed to provide an introductory level, interactive lesson that operates within SPSS in order that students can do the exercises, using the regular version of SPSS, during the lesson. While it is designed for social science students who have successfully completed a lower division introductory statistics course, the Module could be used in a variety of settings, including lower division research methods, upper division
