21A.110 Anthropological Theory (MIT)
This course introduces students to some of the major social theories and debates that inspire and inform anthropological analysis. Over the course of the semester, we will investigate a range of theoretical propositions concerning such topics as agency, structure, subjectivity, history, social change, power, culture, and the politics of representation.

Cet algorithme est-il efficace ? (Vidéo)

La version itérative de notre algorithme d'alignement optimal de séquences est indéniablement beaucoup plus efficace que sa version récursive, puisque nous avons vu qu'il permettait d'éviter que le coût d'un même nœud soit réévalué plusieurs fois.
Mais qu'en est-il véritablement de l'efficacité de cet algorithme ? Eh bien encore une fois, ...

3 Social policy and citizenship

Immigration law and policy do not traditionally appear under the heading of ‘social policy’. We argue here for a broader definition that includes these, since the laws, policies and procedures concerned with the rights of people to enter the UK and to claim refuge can have a profound effect on personal lives, as our personal stories have already shown.

Immigration and asylum is a rapidly changing area of social policy. Four major pieces of legislation were enacted between 1993 and 2

Conclusion

  1. The rate at which water infiltrates into the ground depends on the permeability of the rocks and the state of the ground surface. Below the ground surface there is an unsaturated zone which has air in the pore spaces, and a saturated zone which has all the pores filled with water. The water table is the boundary between the unsaturated zone and the saturated zone, and is the level at which water stands in wells. Water below the water table is called groundwa

If there are key connections between the chain configuration and crystallisation, you might also expect some more subtle effects from rotation about chain bonds.
