This course should take you about 8 hours to study if you attempt the recommended exercises and make summary notes of its key points. Doing so will allow you to practise the crucial academic skill of summary and prÃ©cis â€“ extracting the gist of an argument â€“ which will be of particular help if you go on to study in related areas: perhaps the related politics courses on the OpenLearn website or in the Open University courses from which they come.

In their doughnut-shaped representation, toruses can be thought of as being hollow tubes. Many other surfaces in space can also be drawn as if they were made of hollow tubing. Figure 15 shows two such examples.

Chaos and the Art of Visualising Complexity
Professor Michael Field, from Imperial College London, address the question of what chaos is (and is not) and how one can visualise and describe the general mathematics of chaos and complex dynamics. It will also include some striking images of chaos and numerical demonstrations.

You have seen that the complex number x + iy corresponds to the point (x, y) in the complex plane. This correspondence enables us to give an alternative description of complex numbers, using so-called polar form. This form is particularly useful when we discuss properties related to multiplication and division of complex numbers.

This course is designed to develop the analytical skills you need for a more in-depth study of literary texts. You will learn about rhythm, alliteration, rhyme, poetic inversion, voice and line lengths and endings. You will examine poems that do not rhyme and learn how to compare and contrast poetry.

15.617 The Law of Corporate Finance and Financial Markets (MIT)
Much of 15.617 focuses on mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and the law-sensitive aspects of financial services and financial markets. The course is designed to be an introduction to business law that covers the fundamentals, including contracts, liability, regulation, employment, and corporations. This class also provides an in-depth treatment of the law of finance.

8.325 Relativistic Quantum Field Theory III (MIT)
This course is the third and last term of the quantum field theory sequence. Its aim is the proper theoretical discussion of the physics of the standard model. Topics include: quantum chromodynamics; the Higgs phenomenon and a description of the standard model; deep-inelastic scattering and structure functions; basics of lattice gauge theory; operator products and effective theories; detailed structure of the standard model; spontaneously broken gauge theory and its quantization; instantons and

The results of the visual attention experiments we have considered can be interpreted as follows.

• Attention can be directed selectively towards different areas of the visual field, without the need to re-focus.

• The inability to report much detail from brief, masked visual displays appears to be linked to the need to assemble the various information components.

• The visual information is captured in parallel, but assemb

Reactive changes in the brain are usually marked by changes in neuronal electrical activity. If these changes are to be of long duration, adjustments in neuronal electrical behaviour may be made through changes in gene expression. Rapid-response genes (sometimes called â€˜immediate-earlyâ€™ genes) are activated within minutes of the onset of such sustained electrical activity. These genes are master controls, acting as a gateway to a series of linked events: alteration of electrical firing pa

10.492-2 Integrated Chemical Engineering Topics I: Introduction to Biocatalysis (MIT)
This course provides a brief introduction to the field of biocatalysis in the context of process design. Fundamental topics include why and when one may choose to use biological systems for chemical conversion, considerations for using free enzymes versus whole cells, and issues related to design and development of bioconversion processes. Biological and engineering problems are discussed as well as how one may arrive at both biological and engineering solutions.

There are still many mysteries that surround the Tay Bridge disaster, largely because so little was recorded at the time of construction. For instance, questions remain about the details of reject rates for the castings, and modifications made to the first designs of the piers and their component parts.

Although enlargement of the BoT set of pictures has helped clarify the various failure modes described by Henry Law and others at the enquiry, it has also revealed yet more mysteries. Wh

From the time that the temperature fell to about 3 Ã— 1012 K, at about 10âˆ’5 s after the Big Bang, stable baryons (protons and neutrons) began to form from the up and down quarks that remained after the annihilation of matter and antimatter.

In the previous section we saw how to add two vectors and how to multiply a vector by a scalar, but we did not consider how to multiply two vectors. There are two different ways in which we can multiply two vectors, known as the dot product (or scalar product) and the vector product. They are given these names because the result of the first is a scalar and the result of the second is a vector. (We shall not consider vector products in this course.)
