3.1 Overview

Scattering calculations using wave packets are so laborious that they are generally done numerically, using a computer. However, in many cases, scattering phenomena can be adequately treated using a procedure based on stationary states. This approach can give valuable insight into the scattering process without the need for computer simulations.

Session 3 introduces the stationary-state approach to scattering. The discussion is mainly confined to one dimension, so a stationary-state sol

16.8 Linking data

We now have two sets of data held by the supermarket: the data about its own products and the personal data about customers. Individually, each of these two sets of information has important uses. However, when they are linked, they provide a very powerful tool for the supermarket.

The personal data from a loyalty card scheme can be used to compile targeted mailing lists, because data about your purchases can help build up a profile of how you spend your money. For example, the supermar

3.2 Stage 1: Finding out about the exam paper

As a first step, it is a good idea to find out as much as you can about the exam paper for your course. Find out how your exam paper is set out, the way the questions are organised, and what weight each question carries in terms of marks. Different papers adopt different formats. Some require multiple-choice answers. Others ask for essay or short paragraph answers. Some require technical or numerical answers. Reading the instructions on the exam paper is particularly important, as the followi

4.4 The ongoing story

At the time of writing (2006), the Golden Rice tale is an unfinished story. Some of the developments of the last five years are summarised here.

One area of ongoing scientific dispute is the question of whether the enriched rice can contribute significantly to the alleviation of vitamin A deficiency.

3.2 Analogue things

In I claimed that we lived in an analogue world, but put off defining what the term ‘analogue’ means. Here is a starting point: analogue quantities are ones that change continuously.

It is easy to misread this definition. What it does not mean is that analogue quantities are ones that change continually, or all the time. So what does it mean? We need an example.

The Arch Never Sleeps
It has been said that arches never sleep, that they are almost living in the way they adapt to change. Using case studies of Ely Cathedral in England and Chartres in France, the tracks on this album examine the way in which the design of arches developed in the early middle ages, and use mathematical models to explore some of the problems faced and overcome by the stone masons.
