How should entrepreneurs think about the economic concept of competition? Is there anything to learn? Is thinking about the concept useful for entrepreneurs running businesses? Hunter Hastings asks Per Bylund to steer us through this thicket.

### Show Notes

Reading diagrams is an equally useful skill to that of drawing diagrams. Not only does it help you understand what other people are trying to convey, it also helps you be critical of the diagrams you draw yourself. In some cases diagrams are used to make the text look pretty or appealing and do not add to the understanding of the reader (hopefully not the case with the diagrams here!). Even when they are used more effectively there is a need to be critical of what information is being conveye

18.100A Introduction to Analysis (MIT)
Analysis I (18.100) in its various versions covers fundamentals of mathematical analysis: continuity, differentiability, some form of the Riemann integral, sequences and series of numbers and functions, uniform convergence with applications to interchange of limit operations, some point-set topology, including some work in Euclidean n-space.

Harnessing Bio-based Materials for Greener Products
Cellulose, one of nature's most abundant polymers, is produced in significant quantities in many farmed crops. Yet it is not a human food source - so the use of cellulose in high value materials does not compete with, but potentially complements, food production. This lecture covered work afoot at the University's Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies into processing cellulose into high value materials that gives access to renewably-derived recyclable materials with a range of diverse app

Genes are units of inheritance that contribute to a personâ€™s behaviour and health. In this unit you will learn what genes, DNA and chromosomes are and how they combine to make the human genome. You will also learn how the principles of inheritance work, the effect that our genetic make-up has on health, and how genetic material is passed on from generation to generation.

This material is from our archive and is an adapted extract from Learn about human genetics and health issues
