We will now discuss complex numbers and their properties. We will show how they can be represented as points in the plane and state the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra: that any polynomial equation with complex coefficients has a solution which is a complex number. We will also define the function exp of a complex variable.

Earlier we mentioned several sets of numbers, including Author(s): The Open University

Depending on where you draw the boundary, the carbon footprint can apply to an individual person, a household, an organisation or event, a product, a city, region or country, or the whole world. I'll mainly be considering the footprints of individuals, households and the countries they occupy.

But even then the boundary needs to be defined carefully. Sometimes the carbon footprint is taken to mean the individual's or household's direct CO2 emissions, main

The final surface that can be obtained by identifying edges of a rectangle is even more complicated. Again it cannot be constructed in three dimensions, so is not a surface in space and is hard to visualise. This time we identify both pairs of opposite edges of the rectangle in opposite directions, as indicated by the arrowheads in Author(s): The Open University

1. There are many different types of projects; all have specific objectives, constraints (such as budgets and schedules) and a group or team responsible for the completion of the project.

2. Project teams are effective when both task and relationship behaviours are competently handled. The main task-oriented behaviours are:

• estimating and planning;

• assembling a team;

• rep

Crime, then, is a social construction. We had to break down the definition of crime and the process of recognising crimes to explore that. This is an analytical approach to the issue, which simply means unpacking an idea or a process into its separate components so that we can examine them more closely. But most of the time we don't think about crime analytically. We think about it as a narrative, as a story.

At a personal level we may tell the story, over a drink, of our

Janesville: an American story [Audio]
Speaker(s): Amy Goldstein | What really happens to workers, families and a community when good jobs go away? Come hear the story of one small, proud city in the American heartland that lost the United Statesâ€™ oldest operating General Motors assembly plant two days before Christmas in the midst of the Great Recession â€“ and the lessons it offers about economic pain and resilience. Amy Goldstein (@goldsteinamy) has been a staff writer for thirty years at The Washington Post, where much of her w

Designing a distributed system can also be a problem, for example the fact that computers in a distributed system are joined by communication media which can stretch over thousands of miles provides an added dimension to the design process in that response time can be a problem. Another, equally serious problem is that of reliability, for example the fact that a hardware malfunction can bring down a poorly-designed distributed system.

As an example of one design problem that a distribut

The African Red Slip ware provides a clear case of an Italian range of artefacts being first imported to Africa and used, but then being copied and produced in Africa. The African production then develops its own characteristics and identity as an African product. This fits model 4 best, where the Italian prototype is taken over to produce something new, original and Afro-Roman.

Business can profit from taking the environment into account (generally called eco-efficiency). Poor environmental performance is seen as a reflection of poor business practice in general. Eco-efficiency promotes the economic benefits of energy and materials savings, at the same time being first to market with new technologies or products. Since business sustainability lobbies promoted eco-efficiency in the early 1990s, the creed has gained rapid acceptance, and with good cause. There

1. Gametes are special cells because they contain only one set of chromosomes instead of the more usual two sets.

2. The chromosome number is halved by meiosis.

3. The crossing over and random assortment of chromosomes in meiosis produces a unique set of genes in every gamete, and thus in every individual (except for identical twins, who are derived from the same conceptus).

4. Sperm production involves many rounds of mitosis
