17.418 Field Seminar: International Relations Theory (MIT)
This seminar provides an overview of the field of international relations. Each week, a different approach to explaining international relations will be examined. By surveying major concepts and theories in the field, the seminar will also assist graduate students in preparing for the comprehensive examination and further study in the department's more specialized offerings in international relations.

Understanding 2 and 3 dimensional engineering drawings
There are several ways to draw 3 dimensional objects, eg, using perspective, isometric or oblique drawing methods. In engineering, a technique called orthographic projection is used to show a three dimensional object as a two dimensional drawing. Orthographic projection allows all possible views of a three dimensional object to be shown in a two dimensional drawing.

Poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) porous scaffold for tissue engineering. Enlargement of a Pore.
The patients own cells are seeded onto the scaffold and allowed to attach and start producing new bone. The construct is implanted into the defect site, where eventually the polymer will biodegrade and be completely removed, leaving a natural autogenous bone graft. This technique is particularly useful for large defects, or where the host bed is compromised due to disease, although it is still at the research stage. Average Pore Size 350-550 micrometre, porosity estimated at 35-45%.

Ni-Superalloy, as-extruded microstructure
The micrograph shows the three distinct phases of γ' present in polycrystalline superalloys. These are primary, secondary and tertiary γ', defined by their sizes (primary 0.5-1μm), (secondary 30-200nm), (tertiary 1-25nm) and their locations within the microstructure. Primary γ' segregates on the grain boundaries whereas the other forms are more uniformly distributed throughout the matrix. A grain boundary is clearly visible running from top right to bottom left. Due to the technique used, so

Dual-phase steel water quenched from 775°C
Same steel when quenched from 775°C. Carbides cannot be seen anymore. The microstructure is essentially martensite and ferrite. Some retained austenite can be seen as white small particles which are brighter than the background ferrite. Retained austenite measured using XRD was 3%. The step-etching technique has resulted in straw-coloured martensite, white austenite and the off-white ferrite at the background.

Revealing Student Understanding in a Problem-Based Educational Psychology Course
This 'class anatomy' includes the full documentation of one of the problems on the application of a technique for teaching reading as well as some video excerpts from the class, and analyses of the development of students' understanding. It represents the first attempt of a Carnegie Scholar and KML staff to produce a multi-media website. This site was revised in 2004 to emphasize the multimedia components of Cerbin's work from an original course portfolio which is located at http://gallery.carne

CuraÁao
CuraÁao is a computer program that simulates the sterile insect release method (SIRM) of pest population suppression, first conceived by E. F. Knipling (1955). The user can investigate the effects of several variables on the effectiveness of the method and discover what happens when some of the basic assumptions of the model are relaxed or violated in some way. The user should gain some understanding of the sorts of things that complicate the application of the technique in situations that are

Policy Analysis of Multi-Actor Systems
This course is about solving complex problems. Our favorite problems are not just technically complex but also characterized by the presence of many different social actors that hold conflicting interests, objectives, and perceptions and act strategically to get the best out of a problem situation. This course offers guidance for policy analysts who want to assess if and how their analysis could be of help, based on the premise that problem formulation is the cornerstone in addressing complex pr
