Developing the Hardware for Future Human Space Exploration
While Michael Griffin sees a wealth of reasons for space exploration in general and returning to the moon in particular, NASA must still manage on a tiny portion of “the national treasure.” This 7/10th of a percent of the national budget – the equivalent of each American paying 15 cents every day – “is not an expenditur
Leading an Environmentally Sustainable Enterprise
Climate change poses perhaps the premiere threat to coming generations, says Martin Madaus, but to avoid its worst impacts, we must confront the issue now. To that end, Madaus exhorts business leaders to focus immediately on building environmental sustainability into their operations, as he has begun to do at Millipore.
The digital architecture of tomorrow
This paper presents an ongoing research project about the development of the materials and fabrication techniques for a fundamentally new class of architectural composite. This type of composite, which is a representative example of an even broader class of smart architectural material, has the potential to change the design and function of an architectural structure or living environment. As of today, this kind of composite does not exist. Once completed, this will be the first technology on i
Education in a modern world : British Modernism and school design 1930-1970
'Education in a Modern World: British Modernism and school design 1930-1970' is an online resource that is part of RIBA's website. It presents a workshop that formed a focus for architecture students at Oxford Brookes University, engaged in a project to renovate and redesign existing educational and institutional buildings. The notes and images are accessed via the names of the architects, which include Robert W. Edis, Aston Webb, Walter Gropius, Denys Lasdun and Erno Goldfinger. These examples
16.75J Airline Management (MIT)
This course provides an overview of airline management decision processes with a focus on economic issues and their relationship to operations planning models and decision support tools. It emphasizes the application of economic models of demand, pricing, costs, and supply to airline markets and networks, and it examines industry practice and emerging methods for fleet planning, route network design, scheduling, pricing and revenue management.

Retailing in Leeds - Consumer Shopping preferences
Leeds is a major city in the UK and as such is a magnet for shoppers from the surrounding region. Around 1.7 to 1.9 million people are in the catchment area as shoppers in Leeds city centre. Consequently retail is an important business for Leeds. John Temperley Senior Lecturer in Marketing in the Business School and a retail specialist, explains the choices that face consumers and what their preferences are, based on research by students sponsored by Leeds city centre management. The results ar
Intensive case studies for practice across the foundation stage
This paper will provide an introductory overview of the EPPE methodology and findings and focus upon the particular effects of specific teaching and learning practices in pre-schools. Where settings view educational and social development as complementary and equal in importance, children make better all round progress. Freely chosen play activities often provided the best opportunities for adults to extend children’s thinking, but it seems that a balance between child-initiated play and the
5.73 Introductory Quantum Mechanics I (MIT)
5.73 covers fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics: wave properties, uncertainty principles, Schrodinger equation, and operator and matrix methods. Basic applications of the following are discussed: one-dimensional potentials (harmonic oscillator), three-dimensional centrosymetric potentials (hydrogen atom), and angular momentum and spin. The course also examines approximation methods: WKB method, variational principle, and perturbation theory. Acknowledgement The instructor would like to ack

Intuitive and Effective Design of Periodic Symmetric Tiles
This paper presents a new approach for intuitive and effective design of periodic symmetric tiles. We observe that planar graphs can effectively represent symmetric tiles and graph drawing provides an intuitive paradigm for designing symmetric tiles. Moreover, based on our theoretical work to represent hexagonal symmetry by rectangular symmetry, we are able to present all symmetric tiles as graphs embedded on a torus and based on simple modulo operations. This approach enables us to develop a si

Speaker(s): Professor Barry Buzan, Trine Flockhart, Professor John Ikenberry, Professor Charles Kupchan | This roundtable of eminent scholars will debate the future of the liberal international order. The liberal order is a global system based on shared norms, economic openness, and commitment to cooperation through multilateral institutions. Will this system of global governance persist, or is the global system likely to become more fragmented, mercantilist, and more conflictual? Barry Buzan i
