2.094 Finite Element Analysis of Solids and Fluids (MIT)
This course presents finite element theory and methods for general linear and nonlinear analyses. Reliable and effective finite element procedures are discussed with their applications to the solution of general problems in solid, structural, and fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer, and fluid-structure interactions. The governing continuum mechanics equations, conservation laws, virtual work, and variational principles are used to establish effective finite element discretizations and the st

Problem Based Learning tasks in Economic Growth: convergence hypothesis theory
Student handout outlining a PBL (Problem Based Learning) task on a final year course on economic growth and understanding convergence hypothesis theory.

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

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 3
The instructor solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: A 555-mile, 5-hour trip on the Autobahn was driven at two speeds. The average speed of the car was 105 mph on the first part of the trip, and the average speed was 115 mph for the second part. How long did the car drive at each speed? Answer: 105 mph for 2 hours and 115 mph for 3 hours.

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 1
The solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: Two cyclists start at the same corner and ride in opposite directions. One cyclist rides twice as fast as the other. In 3 hours, they are 81 miles apart. Find the rate of each cyclist. Answer: 9 mph and 18 mph

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 2
The instructor solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: A jogger started running at an average speed of 6 mph. Half an hour later, another runner started running after him starting from the same place at an average speed of 7 mph. How long will it take for the runner to catch up to the jogger? Answer: 3 hours

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 5
The instructor solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: A car and a bus set out at 2 pm from the same spot, headed in the same direction. The average speed of the car is twice the average speed of the bus. After 2 hours, the car is 68 miles ahead of the bus. Find the rate of the bus and the car. Answer: Bus speed: 34 mph; Car speed: 68 mph

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 6
The instructor solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: A pilot flew from one city to another city averaging 150 mph. Later, it flew back to the first city averaging 100 mph. The total flying time was 5 hours. How far apart are the cities? Answer: 300 miles

Buffalo Bill's wild west parade
The film shows a parade down Fifth Avenue, New York. In the foreground many children, both black and white, can be seen following alongside the parade. The participants in the parade include cowboys, Indians, and soldiers in the uniform of the United States Cavalry on horseback and riding horse-drawn coaches. Buffalo Bill can be seen on horseback, lifting his hat to the crowd [Frame: 1397].

Photographed April 1, 1901. Location: Fifth Avenue, New York, N.Y.

Rate-Time-Distance, Problem 4
The insructor solves this word problem using uniform motion rt=d formula: Andy and Beth are at opposite ends of a 18-mile country road with plans to leave at the same time running toward each other to meet. Andy runs 7 mph while Beth runs 5 mph. How long after they begin will they meet? Answer: 1.5 hours

15.098 Special Seminar in Applied Probability and Stochastic Processes (MIT)
This seminar is intended for doctoral students and discusses topics in applied probability. This semester includes a variety of fields, namely statistical physics (local weak convergence and correlation decay), artificial intelligence (belief propagation algorithms), computer science (random K-SAT problem, coloring, average case complexity) and electrical engineering (low density parity check (LDPC) codes).

In this podcast, Professor Moriarty discusses nanotechnology, and how it has led to a convergence of the traditional sciences. He talks about the commercial applications of nanotechnology such as hard disk technology in laptops, stain free materials and fabrics, self-cleaning windows and advanced water filtration.

He also touches on some of the myths about nanotechnology as well as some of the real dangers of Nanotechnology and the steps governments are taking to regulate it.

Mine
In August 2006 I travelled to Angola, southern Africa, with the international development agency Christian Aid to visit post conflict projects funded by the charity and see for myself the issues faced by millions of young people living in this war torn country. I spent time in the capital Luanda, and a remote region in the south west called Mavinga, during which time we were living in a satin lined mud hut, welcomed and hospitably looked after by people with very little means at their disp

4 The future of direct solar energy use
Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterize those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continuall, whether or not we use it, and most have their origins in energy generated outside the Earth, yet the potential of each is limited by its total supply set against its rate of use. The Sun will radiate energy until it ceases thermonuclear fusion, in around 5 billion yea
