Guido HÃ¼lsmann: Inside the Mind of Mises
Jeff Deist and Guido HÃ¼lsmann discuss HÃ¼lsmann's years spent writing Mises's biography ('Mises: The Last Knight of Liberalism'), the serendipitous discovery of Mises's papers in Moscow that made the book possible, how Mises endured and kept working as Europe burned, and how Mises's personal sacrifices helped pave the way for Austrian academics working today.

18.465 Topics in Statistics: Nonparametrics and Robustness (MIT)
This graduate-level course focuses on one-dimensional nonparametric statistics developed mainly from around 1945 and deals with order statistics and ranks, allowing very general distributions. For multidimensional nonparametric statistics, an early approach was to choose a fixed coordinate system and work with order statistics and ranks in each coordinate. A more modern method, to be followed in this course, is to look for rotationally or affine invariant procedures. These can be based on empiri

In the absence of air resistance, an object falling freely under the influence of the Earth's gravity, close to the surface of the Earth, experiences an acceleration of about 9.81 m sï»¿âˆ’ï»¿2 in the downward direction. The precise value of the magnitude is indicated by the symbol g and varies slightly from place to place due to variations in surface altitude, the effect of the Earth's rotation and variations in the internal composition of the Earth. Some typical values for

Just to put things into perspective and remind ourselves of some basic background features of the EU, it is useful to provide an outline picture of the size of the EU compared to the USA and Japan. While a lot is made of the rise of China and India as potential competitors to these and other economies, as yet they remain rapidly expanding economic giants whose main impact will probably arise in the next decade. Comparative data on these two economies, and on the EU-12, the USA and Japan, is g
