2.2 The organisation: loyalty cards Many supermarkets and other firms (such as petrol companies and airlines) use loyalty cards: cards that offer a customer some form of incentive, such as a future discount or gift, to continue buying from that firm. For example, the British supermarket chain Tesco issues such cards. The holder of a loyalty card is regularly sent vouchers which give the holder discounts from their shopping bills and also vouchers which enable them to gain a discount on items that the supermarket wishes to promo

6.977 Semiconductor Optoelectronics: Theory and Design (MIT)
6.977 focuses on the physics of the interaction of photons with semiconductor materials. The band theory of solids is used to calculate the absorption and gain of semiconductor media. The rate equation formalism is used to develop the concepts of laser threshold, population inversion and modulation response. Matrix methods and coupled mode theory are applied to resonator structures such as distributed feedback lasers, tunable lasers and microring devices. The course is also intended to introduce

Behavioral Economics and Decision Making
Have you ever wondered if people are *really* rational? For the last hundred years economic theory has been built on the underlying assumption that people are rational. The field of behavioral economics and decision making both challenge this fundamental assumption by showing in a variety context, people's judgments are not rational. In this brief six week course, we will go through an overview of some of the main points in the field exploring things like prospect theory, the endowment effect, h
