Wave propagation in random media: diffusion vs. localization
Dr. Thomas Wellens (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): As it is well known, waves are fundamentally distinct from (classical) particles in their ability to display interference. However, in presence of disorder, interferences tend to be washed out. In this case, wave propagation reduces to a simple diffusion process - like a random walk of a classical particle ("soccer ball in the forest"). But under appropriate circumstances, some interferences may also survive the disorder average and i

Real-Time Embedded Systems - Introduction to Scheduling Strategies
This lecture is the only part of the "Introduction to Scheduling Strategies" topic in the Real-Time Embedded Systems module.
01 - Introductions
In this first lecture Professor Hungerford introduces the course's academic requirements and some of its central concerns. She uses a magazine advertisement for James Joyce's Ulysses and an essay by Vladimir Nabokov (author of Lolita, a novel on the syllabus) to establish opposing points of view about what is required to be a competent reader of literature. The contrast between popular emotional appeal and detached artistic judgment frames literary debates from the Modernist, and through the pos
16 - The Evolution and Perfection of Monetary Policy
Central Banks, originally created as bankers' banks, implement monetary policy using their leverage over the supply of money and credit standards. Since the Bank of England was founded in 1694, through the gold standard which lasted until the 1930s, and into modern times, central banks have pursued monetary policy to stabilize the banking system. Central banks monitor currency flows and inflation, acting when crises, such as bank runs, emerged. More recently, central banks have taken an increasi
11 - Stocks
The stock market is the information center for the corporate sector. It represents individuals' ownership in publicly-held corporations. Although corporations have a variety of stakeholders, the shareholders of a for-profit corporation are central since the company is ultimately responsible to them. Companies offer dividends, stock repurchases and stock dividends to give profits back to shareholders or to signal information. Companies can also take on debt to raise capital, creating leverage. Th
02 - The Universal Principle of Risk Management: Pooling and the Hedging of Risks
Statistics and mathematics underlie the theories of finance. Probability Theory and various distribution types are important to understanding finance. Risk management, for instance, depends on tools such as variance, standard deviation, correlation, and regression analysis. Financial analysis methods such as present values and valuing streams of payments are fundamental to understanding the time value of money and have been in practice for centuries.
21 - Stalinism
One of the central questions in assessing Stalinism is whether or not the abuses of the latter were already present in the first years of the Russian Revolution. The archival evidence suggests that this is partly the case, and that even in its early stages Soviet Russia actively persecuted not just those who were believed to have profited unfairly, without laboring, but also non-Russian ethnic groups. Stalin, although not an ethnic Russian himself, was committed to the assimilation of national i
