6.004 Computation Structures (MIT)
6.004 offers an introduction to the engineering of digital systems. Starting with MOS transistors, the course develops a series of building blocks — logic gates, combinational and sequential circuits, finite-state machines, computers and finally complete systems. Both hardware and software mechanisms are explored through a series of design examples. 6.004 is required material for any EECS undergraduate who wants to understand (and ultimately design) digital systems.

5.1 The nervous system

Development has so far mostly been assessed in terms of the gross performance, the overt behaviour, of the organism. Relationships have been established between certain environmental events and certain behaviours. In the next three sections, Sections 5 to 7, there is a major shift in emphasis, from considering behaviour to considering the structure of the nervous system. Essentially, this is doing no more than stepping down a level to look at what is going on inside the organism, in particula

3.4 Type

To improve aerobic fitness the ACSM recommends exercise that employs large muscle groups, is rhythmic or dynamic, can be maintained continuously and is aerobic in nature (Garber et al., 2011). This type of exercise results in larger increases in aerobic fitness. Activities that would fit into this category include walking, running, swimming and cycling. This again depends upon the level of the individual and their goals and demands of their activity or sport.

1 The size of numbers

Numbers are used to specify a quantity or amount. For example, people give their ages as a number of years: ‘I am 51 years old’ or ‘I am five and a half’. Votes in elections may be described in thousands. Temperatures are measured in positive and negative degrees Celsius. Numbers smaller than one may be expressed as fractions or decimals. This section considers whole numbers, decimals, fractions and negative numbers and reminds you of the essence of a number – how ‘big’ it is.

1.2 Decimal points

Suppose you have less than one of any particular unit: how would you represent that using the decimal system?

Well, we've already seen that decimal numbers rely on a positional system, in which values get smaller by factors of ten as you read from left to right. If we continue doing this, then the number to the right of a single unit represents tenths of that unit. A decimal point is then used to mark the boundary between the whole units and tenths of that unit.

Automation of Deck Bridge Representations
The bridge deck has a apparent simple shape, but it is the result of an adequate combination of two longitudinal geometric components: the deck shape evolution along de longitudinal section the layout of the road, that acts in simultaneous over a cross section, defining the deck exact shape. A geometric modelling computer programme was developed for box girder decks, allowing the generation of cross sections along the deck, defined with correct shape and location.
