LSE Literary Festival 2017 | Messy: How to be creative and resilient in a tidy-minded world [Audio]
Speaker(s): Tim Harford | Award-winning columnist Tim Harford celebrates the benefits that messiness has in our lives: why it’s important, why we resist it, and why we should embrace it instead. Using research from neuroscience, psychology, social science, as well as captivating examples of real people doing extraordinary things, he explains that the human qualities we value – creativity, responsiveness, resilience – are integral to the disorder, confusion, and disarray that produce them.

Advection d'un scalaire et caractéristiques (Ondes de surface et ressauts)
Ce cours détaille la résolution de l'équation 1D d'advection d'un champ scalaire par une vitesse qui peut dépendre de l'espace, du temps ou de la valeur du champ advecté. On montre que cette résolution passe par la construction de courbes caractéristiques qui sont les trajectoires de particules fictives animée de la vitesse d'advection. L'équation d'advection peut-être alors vue comme l'égalité entre la dérivation du scalaire le long de ces courbes et du terme de production. La lect

Designing biases that augment socio-cognitive interactions
This chapter questions the assumption that the best environment for computer-supported collaborative learning is the one that most closely reproduces the features of face-to-face collaboration. Empirical studies have failed to establish the superiority of group interaction with richer media. Instead, the chapter explores media features that do not exist in face-to-face interactions and explains how these features might augment group cognition. The first feature, the persistency of the informatio
