5.11 Promises

Having tried various devices to persuade Ned, Ros resorts to her other ‘technical’ approach. She reminds him of his employment contract, which requires him to do his best to exploit his work. A contract, of course, is a form of promise you endorse when you sign it. Signing the contract is performative, it changes the relationships. In this case, it clearly is a promise, it is a promise to do his ‘best’, and that is clearly an ethical matter. This move obviously has a strong influence

8.4.1 Open-loop control

Open-loop is the crudest way of controlling etch depth. It relies on ensuring that every aspect of the process that can affect the rate of progress of the etch is kept under tight control. This can add up to a sizeable list. Table 5 shows just some parameters that affect both wet and dry etching.

17.905 Forms of Political Participation: Old and New (MIT)
How and why do we participate in public life? How do we get drawn into community and political affairs? In this course we examine the associations and networks that connect us to one another and structure our social and political interactions. Readings are drawn from a growing body of research suggesting that the social networks, community norms, and associational activities represented by the concepts of civil society and social capital can have important effects on the functioning of democracy

7.346 Synaptic Plasticity and Memory, from Molecules to Behavior (MIT)
In this course we will discover how innovative technologies combined with profound hypotheses have given rise to our current understanding of neuroscience. We will study both new and classical primary research papers with a focus on the plasticity between synapses in a brain structure called the hippocampus, which is believed to underlie the ability to create and retrieve certain classes of memories. We will discuss the basic electrical properties of neurons and how they fire. We will see how fi

15.010 is the Sloan School's core subject in microeconomics, with sections for non-Sloan students labeled 15.011. Our objective is to give you a working knowledge of the analytical tools that bear most directly on the economic decisions firms must regularly make. We will emphasize market structure and industrial performance, including the strategic interaction of firms. We will examine the behavior of individual markets -- and the producers and consumers that sell and buy in those markets -- in

5.5 Bills and the Scottish Parliament

Bills in the Scottish Parliament are very similar, in terms of layout, structure and the conventions of legislative drafting, to Bills of the UK Parliament. This is primarily because the Acts of the Scottish Parliament (ASPs) to which they are intended to give rise form part of the UK ‘statute book’ alongside existing statute law.

The progress of a Bill through the Scottish Parliament will depend on a number of factors, as not all Bills follow the same process. The difference betwee

7.2.2 Step coverage (conformality)

Not all layers require precise thickness control. Sometimes all that matters is that the film coats the entire surface, including vertical walls and (most difficult) the corners at the bottom of deep holes.

For example:

  • We may require an insulating layer of oxide between two conductors.

  • A protective titanium nitride barrier layer prevents aluminium from diffusing into silicon, and an underlying titanium adhesion layer ensures that

An Interactive Shape Modeling System for Robust Design of Functional 3D Shapes
In Architecture, it is essential to design functional and topologically complicated 3D shapes (i.e. shapes with many holes, columns and handles). In this paper, we present a robust and interactive system for the design of functional and topologically complicated 3D shapes. Users of our system can easily change topology (i.e. they can create and delete holes and handles, connect and disconnect surfaces). Our system also provide smoothing operations (subdivision schemes) to create smooth surfaces.

5.8 Delacroix’s modernity – the historical context

It is important to place Delacroix’s modernity in its historical context because it had, in its time, a political resonance. Delacroix was not exactly anti-establishment. He appreciated very much the government commissions he received in the 1820s and was relieved to find that, in the longer term, the fuss over Sardanapalus had not damaged his ability to attract further commissions. But his sympathies did lie with the Liberals of his age. In 1815, after the battle of Waterloo, the Fr

Multiplying Rationals
Multiplying rational expressions is basically two simplifying problems put together. This video clip explains how to multiply rationals by factoring both numerators and denominators and identifying equivalents of one to cancel. Dividing rational expressions is the same as multiplying with one additional step—we take the reciprocal of the second fraction and change the division to multiplication. (1:41)
