System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St

Substance Abuse and the Family
This course focuses on families with members who are substance abusers, and the ways in which these families function. The course explores the methods and resources available for helping such families.
3.14 Physical Metallurgy (MIT)
The central point of this course is to provide a physical basis that links the structure of metals with their properties. With this understanding in hand, the concepts of alloy design and microstructural engineering are also discussed, linking processing and thermodynamics to the structure and properties of metals.
3.23 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Properties of Materials (MIT)
This class discusses the origin of electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, with a focus on the acquisition of quantum mechanical tools. It begins with an analysis of the properties of materials, presentation of the postulates of quantum mechanics, and close examination of the hydrogen atom, simple molecules and bonds, and the behavior of electrons in solids and energy bands. Introducing the variation principle as a method for the calculation of wavefunctions, the course continu
Real-Time Embedded Systems - Simple Real Time System Structure
This lecture is the only part of the "Simple Real Time System Structure" topic in the Real-Time Embedded Systems module.
5.069 Crystal Structure Analysis (MIT)
This course covers the following topics: X-ray diffraction: symmetry, space groups, geometry of diffraction, structure factors, phase problem, direct methods, Patterson methods, electron density maps, structure refinement, how to grow good crystals, powder methods, limits of X-ray diffraction methods, and structure data bases.
20.441J Biomaterials-Tissue Interactions (MIT)
This course covers the principles of materials science and cell biology underlying the design of medical implants, artificial organs, and matrices for tissue engineering. Methods for biomaterials surface characterization and analysis of protein adsorption on biomaterials. Molecular and cellular interactions with biomaterials are analyzed in terms of unit cell processes, such as matrix synthesis, degradation, and contraction. Mechanisms underlying wound healing and tissue remodeling following imp
Mini project : internet security mechanisms - application of a fingerprint reader in Windows using J
This is Mini Project documentation about internet security mechanisms. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc in Internet Technology and E-Commerce (course number 2ELE0076) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. It includes a project introduction, class structure and tasks for days 1 and 2 of the project brief. This project requires an understanding of a medium complexity Java API. The student will be expected t
3.40J Physical Metallurgy (MIT)
This course examines how the presence of 1-, 2- and 3D defects and second phases control the mechanical, electromagnetic and chemical behavior of metals and alloys. It considers point, line and interfacial defects in the context of structural transformations including annealing, spinodal decomposition, nucleation, growth, and particle coarsening. In addition, it concentrates on structure-function relationships, and in particular how grain size, interstitial and substitutional solid solutions, an
Constructing a plaster model of the dentition - Part 1
Before the construction of a dental prosthesis (in this case a crown for a damaged tooth) can begin, a model of the dentition must be made. This video shows the process of using silicone materials (supported in a tray) to record the shape of the teeth. For clarity process is shown on the workbench. From set of videos used in Advanced Restorative Course in School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield.

3.225 Electronic and Mechanical Properties of Materials (MIT)
This course covers the fundamental concepts that determine the electrical, optical, magnetic and mechanical properties of metals, semiconductors, ceramics and polymers. The roles of bonding, structure (crystalline, defect, energy band and microstructure) and composition in influencing and controlling physical properties are discussed. Also included are case studies drawn from a variety of applications: semiconductor diodes and optical detectors, sensors, thin films, biomaterials, composites and
Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras
In June 2009 the Operator Algebras and Applications International Summer School was held in Lisbon. Dr Joel Feinstein taught one of the four courses available on Regularity conditions for Banach function algebras. He delivered four 90 minute lectures on and this learning object contains the slides, handouts, annotated slides and audio podcasts from each session. Banach function algebras are complete normed algebras of bounded, continuous, complex-valued functions defined on topological spaces.
U-Now is The University of Nottingham's collection of open educational materials which have been uploaded to the web for anyone to use. The materials range from complete modules to smaller scale learning objects and highlight a range of teaching and learning activities from across the University. There are no assessments and no credits awarded but U-Now provides an opportunity to browse or download material and learn more about a familiar subject or a new topic.
