Conclusion

In this Introduction we have explored the development of technology from the start of the Industrial Revolution to the present day.

We have explored some major global environmental issues, in particular our dependence on the exploitation of fossil fuels, and have outlined some of the fundamental constraints on the abili

Machine de Turing
Dans les années 30, Alan Turing a inventé une machine abstraite et expliquer la notion de « procédure mécanique » : on parle d'algorithme. Cette machine est la plus élémentaire possible destinée à faire agir des mécanismes de calcul, numériques ou symboliques, comme le font notamment les ordinateurs. La machine imaginée par Turing comporte un ruban divisé en cases, dans lesquelles elle peut écrire des symboles. La machine ne peut lire qu'une seule case à la fois, de même elle é

1.3 Summary

  • Modern sport and the media are closely linked in a variety of ways.

  • One area of connection is through big events and sports celebrities.

  • The media also provide routine coverage, scores, results, venue and scheduling details and everyday information, often at speed; for example, through the internet, and satellite and mobile phone technologies.

  • This type of coverage is illustrated by the example of English p

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

3.3 Quantitative and qualitative evidence

The Tables above provide official quantitative evidence: evidence, data or information which is expressed in numerical terms. On the face of it, this clearly shows that recorded crime increased significantly throughout the twentieth century, albeit with some ‘dips’ in recent years. Common sense is confirmed. But there are problems with these data. Remember, we are looking here at crimes recorded by the police. Do you think that all crimes are recorded? There might be different reas

21L.707 Writing Early American Lives: Gender, Race, Nation, Faith (MIT)
This course focuses on the period between roughly 1550-1850. American ideas of race had taken on a certain shape by the middle of the nineteenth century, consolidated by legislation, economics, and the institution of chattel slavery. But both race and identity meant very different things three hundred years earlier, both in their dictionary definitions and in their social consequences. How did people constitute their identities in early America, and how did they speak about these identities? Tex

Computer Renderings ? ?Reality is Overrated?
In this paper, two problems concerning truthfulness of computer-generated visualization are considered. The first one concerns relationships between reality and its representation by computer renderings. The second problem concerns the kind of representations people need. These problems are analyzed for static perception of architectural forms based on computer visualization, and for dynamic walk-through perception of urban space. The thesis of the paper is that many photorealistic renderings ar
