Tying and Bundling; Advertising - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.
Witchcraft and Religious War - European Civilization from the Renaissance to the Present
An introduction to European history from around 1500 to the present. The central question that the course addresses is how and why Europe-- a small, relatively poor, and politically fragmented place-- became the motor of globalization and a world civilization in its won right. Put differently how did ...
General Biology Fall 2008
This course is a general introduction to cell structure and function, molecular and organism genetics, animal development, form and function.
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet allows the user to construct a histogram by clicking on a number line to generate the sample data. The class width can be varied and various summary statistics can be displayed.
Order Statistic Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet simulates the order statistics of a random sample from a given distribution. The sample size, order, and sampling distribution can be specified.
This course provides an introduction to stochastic processes in communications, signal processing, digital and computer systems, and control. Topics include continuous and discrete random processes, correlation and power spectral density, optimal filtering, Markov chains, and queuing theory.
Uncertainty in Engineering Analysis
This course on uncertainty in engineering analysis can also be referred to as probability and statistics for engineers. In particular, we will deal with the applications of probability and statistics to problems related to civil and environmental engineering.

Goes through examples and notation. The pen on paper presentation is clear and understandable. Provided by www.mathstutor.biz
Biological Soil Crusts
This USGS Canyonlands Research Station site features a series of web pages focusing on biological soil crusts. Biological soil crusts are the community of organisms living at the surface of desert soils. The site provides a menu of links to biological soil crust pages including Crusts 101: an introduction to biological soil crusts, an advanced page with a downloadable 90-page report on soil crusts, a gallery of biological soil crust images and figures, references, the Canyon Country Ecosystems R
Black Hills Hydrology Study
This USGS site contains information on the geology units, topography, and precipitation rates of the Black Hills as it relates to the hydrology. Included is a map defining the study area, precipitation graphs, a stratigraphic column, a map denoting the distribution of hydrogeologic units, a geologic cross section, and a photo of the hydrogeologic setting. Links to an introduction to this study, objectives, products, references, and digital map services are also available through this site.
Quake: 1906 San Francisco Quake
This site tells why the April 18, 1906, earthquake along the San Andreas Fault was one of the most significant earthquakes of all time. See photos, eyewitness accounts, the 1906 seismogram, and casualty and damage statistics. Learn about the flurry of scientific investigation unleashed by the quake and the advances that followed.
This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics
In the early 1960s, the emergence of the theory of plate tectonics started a revolution in the earth sciences. Since then, scientists have verified and refined this theory, and now have a much better understanding of how our planet has been shaped by plate-tectonic processes. We now know that, directly or indirectly, plate tectonics influences nearly all geologic processes, past and present. Indeed, the notion that the entire Earth's surface is continually shifting has profoundly changed the way
Small Business Management
Course Objectives: To provide students with an introduction to the world of small business and an understanding of what is needed to start/run a small business. To state that the small business is the most dominant form of business in society is not an overstatement: over 98% of the businesses in the country employ less than 100 people. Therefore, the majority of you will most likely be either starting, owning, or occupying a significant management position in a small firm sometime in your lifet
Elementary Abstract Algebra
This book is intended for a one semester introduction to abstract algebra. Available in postscript, pdf, and latex formats.
2.27 Turbulent Flow and Transport (MIT)
Turbulent flows, with emphasis on engineering methods. Governing equations for momentum, energy, and species transfer. Turbulence: its production, dissipation, and scaling laws. Reynolds averaged equations for momentum, energy, and species transfer. Simple closure approaches for free and bounded turbulent shear flows. Applications to jets, pipe and channel flows, boundary layers, buoyant plumes and thermals, and Taylor dispersion, etc., including heat and species transport as well as flow fields
