Most Internet content today is "served" from a central system that takes requests from a user's "client." Typically, the user asks for access to information or other data; the requested content is then "pushed" from the central system to the user. In this model, the various visitors to a given web site do not interact. By contrast, peer-to-peer technology (commonly known as "P2P") creates conversations among individual personal computers (PCs). In this respect, P2P systems resemble an affili

The relationship between the EC and the EU The words ‘European Economic Community’ (EEC), ‘European Community’ (EC) and ‘European Union’ (EU) have already been used in this unit, and many texts and journal and newspaper articles use them interchangeably. It is important that you are clear on their relationship and what they mean. This unit will always refer to the current position as the EU, but what is the relationship between the EC, the EEC and the EU? As mentioned earlier, the Maastricht Treaty (1992) established

21L.017 The Art of the Probable: Literature and Probability (MIT)
"The Art of the Probable" addresses the history of scientific ideas, in particular the emergence and development of mathematical probability. But it is neither meant to be a history of the exact sciences per se nor an annex to, say, the Course 6 curriculum in probability and statistics. Rather, our objective is to focus on the formal, thematic, and rhetorical features that imaginative literature shares with texts in the history of probability. These shared issues include (but are not limited to)

Towards a targeted surfactant stabilized ultrasound contrast agent
Gas-filled microbubbles are highly effective when used as ultrasound contrast agents due to the large difference in acoustic impedance between the gas in the bubble and the surrounding blood. The surfactant-based contrast agent ST68 (Span 60, Tween 80) developed in our laboratory (US Patent # 5, 352, 436) and filled with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), was modified in an attempt to make the agent target specific. Modifications to the agent were done by incorporation an anchor molecule, phosphatidylet

Britain was the first country to industrialise, and it acquired the largest empire ever during this same period. But its sphere of economic influence extended far beyond the boundaries of the formal British Empire. This unit focuses on the economics of empire, using a case study of one town, Dundee in eastern Scotland, to explore this huge topic.
