  • Patera, Anthony; Penn, James Douglass; Yano, Masayuki (2012-06)
    This class introduces elementary programming concepts including variable types, data structures, and flow control. After an introduction to linear algebra and probability, it covers numerical methods relevant to mechanical ...
  • Donaldson, Dave; Costinot, Arnaud (2011-06)
    This course covers, with a focus on both theory and empirics, advanced topics in international trade (as well as inter-regional trade and economic geography). It includes the study of positive issues, such as: Why do ...
  • Fraser, Hamish; Celi, Leo; Szolovits, Peter (2011-06)
    This course is a collaborative offering of Sana, Partners in Health, and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI). The goal of this course is the development of innovations in information systems for developing ...
  • Buehler, Markus; Grossman, Jeffrey (2011-06)
    This subject provides an introduction to modeling and simulation (IM/S), covering continuum methods, atomistic and molecular simulation (e.g. molecular dynamics) as well as quantum mechanics. These tools play an increasingly ...
  • Summons, Roger; Hallmann, Christian; Sepulveda, Julio (2010-12)
    This course covers all aspects of molecular biosignatures, such as their pathways of lipid biosynthesis, the distribution patterns of lipid biosynthetic pathways with regard to phylogeny and physiology, isotopic contents, ...
  • Paradiso, Joseph (2010-06)
    This course is a broad introduction to a host of sensor technologies, illustrated by applications drawn from human-computer interfaces and ubiquitous computing. After extensively reviewing electronics for sensor signal ...
  • Freeman, Dennis (2010-06)
    6.003 covers the fundamentals of signal and system analysis, focusing on representations of discrete-time and continuous-time signals (singularity functions, complex exponentials and geometrics, Fourier representations, ...
  • Bertsekas, Dimitri (2010-06)
    This course will focus on fundamental subjects in (deterministic) optimization, connected through the themes of convexity, geometric multipliers, and duality. The aim is to develop the core analytical and computational ...
  • Selin, Noelle (2010-06)
    This course explores how scientific information can be used to inform policy decision-making processes through the use of quantitative modeling techniques. It incorporates both hands-on analysis and practice using models ...
  • Chatterjee, Nilanjan (2010)
    This lab-oriented course introduces the student to the subject of X-ray spectrometry and micro-scale chemical quantitative analysis of solid samples through an intensive series of hands-on laboratory exercises that use the ...
  • Bonvillian, William (2010)
    The careers of MIT scientists and engineers are significantly determined by public policy decisions made in Washington by the government. However, their access to information on how this system works is limited. Meanwhile, ...
  • Canelake, Sarina (2010)
    This 6-unit P/D/F course will provide a gentle introduction to programming using Python for highly motivated students with little or no prior experience in programming computers over the first two weeks of IAP. The course ...
  • Magee, Christopher L.; Sussman, Joseph (2009-12)
    In establishing the Engineering Systems Division, MIT has embarked on a bold experiment – bringing together diverse areas of expertise into what is designed to be a new field of study. In many respects, the full scale ...
  • Jackson, Jean (2009-12)
    An introduction to the cross-cultural study of ethnic and national identity. We examine the concept of social identity, and consider the ways in which gendered, linguistic, religious, and ethno-racial identity components ...
  • Leiserson, Charles; Amarasinghe, Saman (2009-12)
    Modern computing platforms provide unprecedented amounts of raw computational power. But significant complexity comes along with this power, to the point that making useful computations exploit even a fraction of the ...
  • Donaldson, Dave; Duflo, Esther (2009-12)
    This is a course for those who are interested in the challenge posed by massive and persistent world poverty, and are hopeful that economists might have something useful to say about this challenge. The questions we will ...
  • Paradis, James (2009-12)
    In the Origin of Species (1859), Charles Darwin gave us a model for understanding how natural objects and systems can evidence design without positing a designer: how purpose and mechanism can exist without intelligent ...
  • Lorenzoni, Guido; Guerrieri, Veronica (2009-12)
    This course covers three sets of topics. The first part will cover business cycle models with imperfect information. We will ask questions such as: What shocks drive business cycles? What is the relative role of shocks to ...
  • Summons, Roger (2009-12)
    This course evaluates and discusses the formation and diagnostic structural properties of organic compounds with particular emphasis on those molecules which form chemical fossils. The course is structured around the ...
  • Kaelbling, Leslie; Abelson, Harold; Freeman, Dennis; Lozano-Pérez, Tomás; White, Jacob (2009-12)
    6.01 explores fundamental ideas in electrical engineering and computer science, in the context of working with mobile robots. Key engineering principles, such as abstraction and modularity, are applied in the design of ...
