3.23 Electrical, Optical, and Magnetic Properties of Materials (MIT)
This class discusses the origin of electrical, magnetic and optical properties of materials, with a focus on the acquisition of quantum mechanical tools. It begins with an analysis of the properties of materials, presentation of the postulates of quantum mechanics, and close examination of the hydrogen atom, simple molecules and bonds, and the behavior of electrons in solids and energy bands. Introducing the variation principle as a method for the calculation of wavefunctions, the course continu
21A.850J The Anthropology of Cybercultures (MIT)
This course explores a range of contemporary scholarship oriented to the study of 'cybercultures,' with a focus on research inspired by ethnographic and more broadly anthropological perspectives. Taking anthropology as a resource for cultural critique, the course will be organized through a set of readings chosen to illustrate central topics concerning the cultural and material practices that comprise digital technologies. We'll examine social histories of automata and automation; the trope of t
14.147 Topics in Game Theory (MIT)
This course is an advanced topics course on market and mechanism design. We will study existing or new market institutions, understand their properties, and think about whether they can be re-engineered or improved. Topics discussed include mechanism design, auction theory, one-sided matching in house allocation, two-sided matching, stochastic matching mechanisms, student assignment, and school choice.
7.340 Regenerative Medicine: from Bench to Bedside (MIT)
Regenerative medicine involves the repair and regeneration of tissues for therapeutic purposes, such as replacing bone marrow in leukemia, cartilage in osteoarthritis or cells of the heart after a heart attack. In this course, we will explore basic mechanisms of how cells differentiate into specific tissues in response to a variety of biologic signaling molecules. We will discuss the use of such factors for in vitro tissue production. We will also study the cellular mechanisms involved in the cl

Introduction to Econometrics: EC220
For year 2 undergraduates, presumes some previous introductory study of statistics and calculus. Materials include PPT slides and video recording of lectures. The course follows the author's textbook and is relatively unmathematical in its approach. Part of the TRUE Econometrics site featuring Lectures and Courses.
Introduction to Econometrics: Econmet [U13783]
20 credit unit for year 2 economics undergraduates. Presumes some previous introductory study of statistics. Stresses proper application of methods rather than formal derivations; aims to help students read applied econometrics and attempt their own.
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010. This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration. A variety of very important new concepts are introduced by investigating the properties of numerous examples, and developing the a
Object-Oriented Software Design - The OO Design Process - Case Study & Java Remedies
This practical forms part of "The OO Design Process - Case Study & Java Remedies" topic in the Object-Oriented Software Design module
Virtual Maths, Cylinder - Calculating Volume and Height
Interactive exercise demonstrating how to calculate the volume and height of a cylinder (includes links to other useful resources)
Microscopy with light and electrons
This is a third edition of the Electron Microscopy and Analysis textbook, which was published by Taylor and Francis Books UK in 2001 (ISBN 0748409688). It deals with several sophisticated techniques for magnifying images of very small objects by large amounts - especially in a physical science context. Consisting of seven chapters, presented as separate files the resource incorporates questions and answers in each chapter for ease of learning. Equally as relevant for material scientists and bios
Interdisciplinary Science Habitable Worlds Student Document
Habitable Worlds examines one of the greatest questions mankind has ever asked: are we alone? This module has been designed to aid you in your search for answers, but bear in mind no one person you encounter can be considered an expert in the whole field. You will need to research from multiple sources and may well end up disagreeing with one another on certain issues.

2.29 Numerical Fluid Mechanics (MIT)
This course introduces students to MATLAB®. Numerical methods include number representation and errors, interpolation, differentiation, integration, systems of linear equations, and Fourier interpolation and transforms. Students will study partial and ordinary differential equations as well as elliptic and parabolic differential equations, and solutions by numerical integration, finite difference methods, finite element methods, boundary element methods, and panel methods.
