It's On Us!
We have a lot of traditions here at the University of Arizona; tolerating sexual assault is definitely not one of them. It's on us to Bear Down on sexual assault.
Electronic and magnetic properties of solids are lectured based on quantum mechanics and solid state physics. Beginning with fundamentals of quantum mechanics, perturbation theories are given as some approximation methods. These will be applied to electromagnetic radiation and energy band theory. Fundamentals of transportation, scattering and diffraction of waves and particles in solids are mentioned. Fundamental theories of magnetic properties spin dependent phenomenon and superconductivity wil
Season 2 – Lesson 28 – Coffee Break Spanish
Coming up in this lesson: In lesson 28 we’ll be continuing to create phrases in the language based on the knowledge of grammar we’ve acquired in recent lessons. This week we’re focusing on the context of taking a taxi in a Spanish-speaking country. Please note that lesson 28 of Season 2 was originally known as […]

TALAT Lecture 2502: Material Aspects of Fire Design
This lecture gives information about characteristic behaviour of aluminium alloys and insulation materials at high temperatures; it describes the philosophy of using aluminium alloy structures under risks of fire; it gives an example of fire risk analysis. General engineering background and some familiarity with TALAT lecture 2501 is assumed.
Shear bands in stressed polycarbonate
Yielding in glassy polymers often proceeds by a small sheared region propagating through the material. These patterns can be used in the stress analysis of fracture processes. In addition, the colours in the image are the result of birefringence and relate to the strain-induced alignment of the polycarbonate molecules. Because the specimen is below the glass transition temperature of PC (145 °C), the material will relax when the stress is removed and there will be no residual alignment.

Marginal Analysis and Programme Budgeting
Meeting individual health needs and improving the health of populations within a finite budget is a challenge for health systems worldwide. Programme budgeting and marginal analysis (PBMA) is a tool for tackling this, and for putting some science behind the art of managing scarcity and competing demands. This module explores the definitions, tools and practical application of PBMA. Online interactive learning resource from HealthKnowledge website, for Public Health practitioners, healthcare work
