Cybrids: Integrating Cognitive and Physical Space in Architecture
People regularly use non-physical, cognitive spaces to navigate and think. These spaces are important to architects in the design and planning of physical buildings. Cognitive spaces inform design - often underlying principles of architectural composition. They include zones of privacy, territory and the space of memory and visual thought. They let us to map our environment, model or plan projects, even imagine places like Heaven or Hell. Cyberspace is an electronic extension of this cognitive
Notes on the Synthesis of Form
Every design problem begins with an effort to achieve fitness between two entities: the form in question and its context. The form is the solution to the problem; the context defines the problem. We want to put the context and the form into effortless contact or frictionless coexistence, i.e., we want to find a good fit. For a good fit to occur in practice, one vital condition must be satisfied. It must have time to happen. In slow-changing, traditional, unselfconscious cultures, a form is adjus
The applet in this section allows for simple data analysis of univariate data. Users can either generate normal or uniform data for k samples or copy and paste data from another source to a text box. A univariate analysis is performed for all k samples.
The Central Limit Theorem
The applets in this section of Statistical Java allow you to see how the Central Limit Theorem works. The main page gives the characteristics of five non-normal distributions (Bernoulli, Poisson, Exponential, U-shaped, and Uniform).
Star Library: Histogram Sorting
This activity provides students with 24 histograms representing distributions with differing shapes and characteristics. By sorting the histograms into piles that seem to go together, and by describing those piles, students develop awareness of the different versions of particular shapes (e.g., different types of skewed distributions, or different types of normal distributions), that not all histograms are easy to classify, that there is a difference between models (normal, uniform) and characte
Fostering Simulation-based Learning in Medical Education with Collaboration Script
Active participation of learners is considered a major benefit of simulation-based learning. However, in most courses only few persons can act simultaneously in the simulator while the remaining group observes the running scenario. We investigated how these observation phases can be instructionally designed for more active participation. Research in educational psychology suggests the use of collaboration scripts to structure these observation phases. A collaboration script is an instruction tha
Adaptive FIR Filtering
In this laboratory, students implement a real-time adaptive FIR filter, investigate the convergence of the least mean squares (LMS) algorithm, and apply the adaptive filter to the problems of system identification and echo cancellation.
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform

Pomona College sophomore men, class of 1905
Sophomore men of the class of 1905 pose for a photograph outside in two rows. All of the students are wearing matching sweaters with "1905" across the breast. Vernon Wolcott is on the first row, first on the right. Wallace Robb is on the second row, first on the right.

A group of Pomona College students pose for a photograph in the dining room of Sumner Hall. The men are standing in the back row, the women are seated in front.
Behavior of steel members with trapezoidally corrugated webs and tubular flanges under static loadin
Engineers have long realized that corrugated webs enormously increase steel girdersâ stability against buckling and can result in very economical design. Recently, the new idea of combining the tubular flanges with corrugated webs brought new issues of research. The objective of the research presented in this thesis is to investigate the behavior of steel members with corrugated webs and tubular flanges subjected to shear, bending, and axial compression. Relative buckling modes are also disco
Chris Brett (Olam International) argues for a Business Approach to Food Security
Chris Brett the Senior Vice President Head of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at Olam International looks at a Business Approach to Food Security.
Food security is top of both national and international agendas, the Feed the Future initiative is a prime example. Many emerging countries import staples, for example there are large flows of rice from Asia to Africa, Olam is involved in this supply chain.
This event forms part of the 'Business and Developm
