Linear Systems and Optimization: Convex Optimization II
Continuation of Convex Optimization I. Subgradient, cutting-plane, and ellipsoid methods. Decentralized convex optimization via primal and dual decomposition. Alternating projections. Exploiting problem structure in implementation. Convex relaxations of hard problems, and global optimization via branch & bound. Robust optimization. Selected applications in areas such as control, circuit design, signal processing, and communications. Course requirements include a substantial project.

18.901 Introduction to Topology (MIT)
This course introduces topology, covering topics fundamental to modern analysis and geometry. It also deals with subjects like topological spaces and continuous functions, connectedness, compactness, separation axioms, and selected further topics such as function spaces, metrization theorems, embedding theorems and the fundamental group.
This sample shows the typical structure of silal, irons with high Si content (5.5-7.9 wt%). It is a grey cast iron alloyed with 4-6wt% Si to provide good oxidation resistance. The high Si content forms a dense, adherent iron silicate surface film, which is resistant to oxygen penetration. The flake graphite iron Silal was one of the first heat resisting cast irons developed. Spheroidal graphite Si irons have higher strength and improved ductility. The structure shows cored dendrites of ferrite w

The plasma sphere is a region of ionospheric plasma which co-rotates with the Earth, carried by the magnetic field lines. The plasma pause marks the outer boundary of this region. This colder plasma is more easily moved by the electric fields created by strong solar storms. In the Halloween 2003 event, these fields convected some of the cold plasma out to the magnetopause (grey, semi-transparent surface) and reduced the size of the cold plasma region near the Earth. For this visualization, the 3

"Like transistors in a computer, synapses perform complex computations and connect the brain's non-linear processing elements (neurons) into a functional circuit. Understanding the role of synapses in neuronal computation is essential to understanding how the brain works. In this course students will be introduced to cutting-edge research in the field of synaptic neurophysiology. The course will cover such topics as synapse formation, synaptic function, synaptic plasticity, the roles of synapses
In part 2 of Béla Lugosi's lecture on convergence of series, he continues to discuss integration of the limit function in these series or sequences. He then goes further into applying these into power series. This is a video for advanced math students who are well into Calculus and Calculus II.
This documentary video is suitable for older elementary, middle school, and high school students and features the ability of termites to create a structure that has air conditioning, a sewage system, food storage, and fungus cultivation.
n 2005, artist Steve Tobin created a ten-foot-tall bronze sculpture of a sycamore tree’s root structure fo Trinity Wall Street. The sycamore in question is known as “the tree that saved St. Paul’s Chapel,” because it took the brunt of damage from debris falling from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and the chapel remained relatively unscathed. This video shows how art can be used to be spiritual. Deals slightly with 9-11. For older students.
This story is written and illustrated by Jacqueline Osburn, and is read by the author's mother. The verse, with adult vocabulary and sentence structure, begins with Mother worm telling Willy how to decide what to do with his life. (9:18)
This 45 second video demonstrating the dissection of a frog heart. It demonstrates how cuts are made to the pericardium, truncus arteriosii and the caudal vena cava to remove and open the frog's heart to see its internal structure. This is a small clip from the Digital Frog Virtual Disssection program.
This video about the Philadelphia convention is accompanied by text. "Since the delegates at the Philadelphia Convention decided to throw out the Articles of Confederation, the floor was opened to suggestions for the basic structure of the new government. Edmund Randolph, representing Virginia, proposed a plan largely devised by James Madison. Madison, who felt that Randolph was a more powerful speaker and would be better able to gain support for the plan, suggested a bicameral, or two-house, le
Video accompanied by text. "The discord among the states’ delegates regarding the plans submitted by Virginia and New Jersey eventually subsided, and a negotiation—called the Great Compromise—for the new governmental structure was reached. This compromise was heavily promoted by Connecticut’s Roger Sherman, and the terms “Great Compromise” and “Connecticut Compromise” are used interchangeably. Under Sherman’s compromise, a bicameral legislature would combine elements of both Vi
In this video they show to use a percent structure to solve many percentage problems. The structure is "A percent of a total is a portion." Then they break it down into an equation, percentage times total is equal to the portion. They go through a number of examples. The formula is good and can be used at any level, but the word problems are definitely pre-algebra. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
If you are looking to learn how to structure a paragraph, this lesson will give you tips on how to form a well-written paragraph. The parts of a paragraph that the instuctor speaks of are: the topic, the body, and the closing sentence.
This is a video lecture on how to structure paragraphs. In this segment, Mr. Page emphasizes the 'W' questions (who, what, where, when, and why) to structure a paragraph about hurricanes. The lecturer appears on the right side while images and information appears on the left. (06:42)
This is a video lecture on how to structure paragraphs. In this segment, Mr. Page identifies topic sentences in different paragraphs and discusses coherence. The lecturer appears on the right side while images and information appears on the left. (05:21)
This is a video lecture on how to structure paragraphs. In this segment, Mr. Page discusses the introductory paragraphs (in which the writer states the topic) and concluding paragraphs (where the writer summarizes main points). (06:29)
