9.07 Statistical Methods in Brain and Cognitive Science (MIT)
This course emphasizes statistics as a powerful tool for studying complex issues in behavioral and biological sciences, and explores the limitations of statistics as a method of inquiry. The course covers descriptive statistics, probability and random variables, inferential statistics, and basic issues in experimental design. Techniques introduced include confidence intervals, t-tests, F-tests, regression, and analysis of variance. Assignments include a project in data analysis.

You are about to meet some very large numbers, expressed in scientific notation, and some new units. The new units are those that are used to measure the amount of solar energy received by a part of the Earth's surface. Since plants are dependent on light for photosynthesis, the amount of plant material that ca

TALAT Lecture 1204: Precipitation Hardening
This lecture provides an introduction to the metallurgy of precipitation hardening, with a presentation of the fundamental mechanisms involved and illustrations from alloys which form the basis for engineering alloys. The Al-Mg2Si system is discussed in some detail because of its commercial importance. The microstructural aspects of precipitation hardening are illustrated by examples, many of which were obtained by electron microscopy; an outline of the background to electron microsc

John Rawls est un auteur amÃ©ricain qui a rÃ©veillÃ© la philosophie politique, qui a pris au sÃ©rieux les critiques de ses contempteurs, et qui s'est impliquÃ© dans la vie politique amÃ©ricaine. C'est un auteur classique, qui doit beaucoup Ã  la pensÃ©e de Kant.
Son ouvrage le plus connu, ThÃ©orie de la justice, rÃ©pond Ã  une question fondamentale de la philosophie politique : selon quels principes ordonner une sociÃ©tÃ© juste ? Trois grands principes, que l'auteur Ã©cartera successi

Charts, graphs and tables are all very helpful ways of representing a set of data. However, they are not the only ways of passing on information about data. This section looks at how you can analyse a set of data to summarise the given information as briefly and simply as possible.

Essentially, there are two features of a set of data that enable summarising: the average and the spread. This section starts by looking at what is meant by â€˜averageâ€™. If you have already studied OpenL

1.6 Sources of authority

A very useful way of gaining insight into a religion and seeing how it works is to examine its sources of authority: for example, whether authority is vested in scriptures, in religious specialists, in tradition, in personal experience or a combination of these. Even in traditions where there is some agreement on what counts as an authoritative text, there are still contested issues of how that text is to be interpreted, by whom, with what degree of literalness and in what context. Similarly,

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites

5.13.3 Circular plate

By now you shouldn't be at all surprised to learn that when a circular plate that has an outer rim that is free to vibrate is struck, the plate will vibrate in a number of modes at the same time.

The first four modes of vibration of a circular plate with a free edge are shown in Figure 21. As with

Dog examination techniques
This presentation has been developed to introduce veterinary students to the process of carrying out a systematic physical examination in canine patients. It is designed to act as an introduction to these processes and procedures only, giving the students a framework from which to work as they develop and refine these skills throughout the veterinary course. Physical examination is a key skill which will be used throughout a veterinary surgeon's career and is a key determinant in selecting diag

3.3 Division

Division is probably the most awkward of the four arithmetic operations. Since you may have a calculator, you do not need to be able to carry out complicated divisions by hand, but you do need to carry out simple divisions in order to check your calculator calculations. Division is the reverse process of multiplication. The quantity 12 Ã· 3 tells us how many times 3 goes into 12. Since 4 Ã— 3 = 12, 12 Ã· 3 = 4.
