Externalities - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.
6.301 Solid-State Circuits (MIT)
6.301 is a course in analog circuit analysis and design. We cover the tools and methods necessary for the creative design of useful circuits using active devices. The class stresses insight and intuition, applied to the design of transistor circuits and the estimation of their performance. We concentrate on circuits using the bipolar junction transistor, but the techniques that we study can be equally applied to circuits using JFETs, MOSFETs, MESFETs, future exotic devices, or even vacuum tubes.
History of Boston Transportation
Fred Salvucci ponders the role of contingency in history, and in the evolution of Boston and its transportation system. He starts from the time the glaciers pulled back from Boston, leaving a soggy near-island and a river for the first white settlers to contend with. “The reason the city is here because
