This lecture course on convex optimisation is made available as part of Stanford Engineering Everywhere, an initiative from Stanford University licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 United States licence. The course covers: subgradient, cutting-plane and ellipsoid methods; decentralized convex optimisation via primal and dual decomposition; alternating projections; exploiting problem structure in implementation; convex relaxations of hard problems and global optimisation via branch a
2.A35 Biomimetic Principles and Design (MIT)
Biomimetics is based on the belief that nature, at least at times, is a good engineer. Biomimesis is the scientific method of learning new principles and processes based on systematic study, observation and experimentation with live animals and organisms. This Freshman Advising Seminar on the topic is a way for freshmen to explore some of MIT's richness and learn more about what they may want to study in later years.
Interesting Facts About Every US President - How Many Do You Know?

3.5 Global climate change continued
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.
Application of fuzzy time series to population forecasting
The potential of fuzzy logic application in simulating of demographic processes by the example of population forecasting task hasbeen investigated. The particularities of population as dynamical system functioning under the condition of uncertainty have beenexamined and fuzzy statement problem has been suggested. The strategy of population forecasting using the method of fuzzy timeseries model has been proposed. The simulations on retrospective evaluation of population are carried out and on the
Desarrollo de material informatico-educativo para la ense?anza de la geometr?a a estudiantes de dise
This paper is born as an answer to the meaningful learning difficulties and academic performance in Spatial and Flat Geometry course on second year Design School at Universidad de las Americas University, Santiago de Chile. The problem is faced from the potentiality that digital environment gives us in representation, display options, shape and projection testing, analysis and non visual accounts to teach flat and spatial geometry within the receptors' codes and coherent with designer's own lang
APPLICATION OF SPATIAL DESIGN ABILITY IN A POSTGRADUATE COURSE
Spatial Design Ability (SDA) has been defined by the author (1983) as the capacity to anticipate the effects (psychological impressions) that architectural spaces or its components produce in observers or users. This concept, which requires the evaluation of spaces by the people that uses it, was proposed as a guideline to a Masters Degree Course in Architectural Design at the Universidad Autonoma de Aguascalientes in Mexico. The theory and the exercises required for the experience needed a mode
Ecological Validity of Real Scale Models
Space simulation is a technique employed by architects, urban designers, environmental psychologists and other related specialists. It is used for academic and research purposes, as an aid to evaluate the impact that the built environment or that to be built would yield in potential or real users. Real Scale Model is organized as one of the models which represents more reliable spatial characteristics in space simulations. However, it is necessary to know the ecological validity of the simulat

Are you a technophobe? Bluetooth, Ethernet WiFi – are they terms that mean nothing to you? This unit will gently guide you to an understanding of how devices 'talk' to each other and what technologies and processes are involved. You will also look at wired and wireless communication technologies, introducing you to some of the key methods involved.
44. Summer Fun in Italy (That’s Amore!)
Let’s spend a day at one of the most famous Italian water parks: Aqualandia. Located near Venice, in the Veneto region, Aqualandia is much more than a traditional water park. With its shows, activities, and extreme attractions, the park is one of Italians’ favorite summer destinations. Let’s have some terrific summer fun at the water [...]
How to Interpret Standardized Test Scores
This clip is a lesson on understanding the different test scores, keeping in mind the percentages do not correspond to letter grade percentages. A standardized test prep instructor shows how to interpret standardized test scores, understand that the SAT has
a 2400 maximum score and the ACT has a 36 maximum score, and each test is divided into several sections.
The San Francisco Earthquake of 1906
This three minute video gives insights into how the earthquake resulted in more scientific methods to study such events. Excellent graphics. Good for understanding this topic and the importance of being prepared. 02:59 run time

Another European Tradition: traceability of the social and the vindication of Gabriel Tarde
A rival of Durkheim, Gabriel Tarde was right to argue that the subject matter of sociology is not society but connections. The understanding of the social cannot be separated from the study of other associations. Bruno Latour is a philosopher and a sociologist and vice president for research at Sciences Po.
TALAT Lecture 1203: Phase Diagrams
This lecture aims at developing a qualitative understanding of binary phase diagrams by reference to the model systems Cu-Ni, Ni-Pt, Au-Ni and Ag-Cu, and also by reference to the Phase Rule. It applies the basic concepts of phase diagrams to binary aluminium alloys; it also aims at extending the discussion to an outline of ternary phase diagrams, and at showing how a so-called pseudo-binary section can be applied with benefit to the Al-Mg-Si system for alloys balanced in Mg2Si.
