The Shoemaker and The Elves There was once a shoemaker, who worked very hard and was very honest, but he could not earn enough to make a living. All he had in the world was gone, just leather enough to make one pair of shoes. He cut out his leather, all ready to make up the next day. In the morning he sat himself down to his work, but there stood the shoes all ready-made. The man did not know what to say or think. &n

17.881 Game Theory and Political Theory (MIT)
Increasingly, political scientists are using game theory to analyze strategic interactions across many different settings. Each of the sub-fields, to differing degrees, has seen game theoretic concepts enter its vocabulary, and students entering the profession will need to understand the potential and limits of game theory. This course aims to give students an entry-level understanding of the basic concepts of game theory, and how these concepts have been applied to the study of political phenom
Implications of resource management in La Parguera, Puerto Rico (The)
A recent rezoning of La Parguera, southwest Puerto Rico, as a tourist zone has resulted in an imbalance between development and appropriate resource management. Development associated with tourism is destroying the sub-tropical dry forest and adding pressure on the marine resources through increased boat traffic and marine structures. Declining water quality and benthic community health are two of the impacts seen in La Parguera associated with these land use changes. This study is three-fold. F

Stone Soup: Building and Maintaining Effective Collaborations
Effective collaborations across California’s higher education segments can accomplish much more than can be done by any single segment alone. In this session we will highlight two examples of current collaborations that have proven to be very effective. One is the CSU Systemwide Digital Library Content, an e-resource consortium created to influence the development of the nascent educational eResource industry and to capture the benefits of our combined (CSU/CCC/UC) buying power. The second is

Behavior-based Computational Design Methodologies: Integrative processes for force defined material
With the introduction of physics-based algorithms and modeling environments, design processes have been shifting from the representation of materiality to the simulation of approximate material descriptions. Such computational processes are based upon enacting physical and material behavior, such as gravity, drag, tension, bending, and inflation, within a generative modeling environment. What is often lacking from this strategy is an overall understanding of computational design; that informati
