  • Sutherland, Andrew (2013-06)
    This graduate-level course is a computationally focused introduction to elliptic curves, with applications to number theory and cryptography.
  • 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 ...
  • Buonassisi, Tonio (2011-12)
    In this course, students learn about the fundamentals of photoelectric conversion: charge excitation, conduction, separation, and collection. Lectures cover commercial and emerging photovoltaic technologies and cross-cutting ...
  • 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 ...
  • Selin, Noelle (2011-06)
    ESD.864 Modeling and Assessment for Policy explores how scientific information and quantitative models can be used to inform policy decision-making. Students will develop an understanding of quantitative modeling techniques ...
  • 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 ...
  • Sheffield, Scott (2011-06)
    This course introduces students to probability and random variables. Topics include distribution functions, binomial, geometric, hypergeometric, and Poisson distributions. The other topics covered are uniform, exponential, ...
  • Perron, Taylor; Jagoutz, Oliver (2011-06)
    This course introduces students to the basics of geology. Through a combination of lectures, labs, and field observations, we will address topics ranging from formation of the elements, mineral and rock identification, and ...
  • Rajagopal, Balakrishnan (2010-12)
    This introductory survey course is intended to develop an understanding of key issues and dilemmas of planning in non-western countries. The topics covered in this course will include state intervention, governance, law ...
  • Ritvo, Harriet (2010-12)
    This class provides a historical survey of the ways that people have interacted with their closest animal relatives, for example: hunting, domestication of livestock, exploitation of animal labor, scientific study of ...
  • 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, ...
  • Sterman, John (2010-12)
    15.872 is a continuation of 15.871 Introduction to System Dynamics. It emphasizes tools and methods needed to apply systems thinking and simulation modeling successfully in complex real-world settings. The course uses ...
  • Consalvo, Mia (2010-12)
    This course offers an overview of the social, cultural, political, and economic impact of mediated communication on modern culture. Combines critical discussions with experiments working with different media. Media covered ...
  • 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 ...
  • Raman, Shankar (2010-06)
    This subject examines the ways in which we read. It introduces some of the different strategies of reading, comprehending and engaging with literary texts developed in the twentieth century, paying special attention to ...
  • Demaine, Erik; Schulz, André (2010-06)
    Data structures play a central role in modern computer science. You interact with data structures much more often than with algorithms (think of Google, your mail server, and even your network routers). In addition, data ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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, ...
  • Wood, Elizabeth A. (2010-06)
    In this course we will examine the development of feminist theory over time. Some subjects we will examine in detail include suffrage and equality; radical feminism; psychoanalysis and feminism; theories of power; sexuality ...
