  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Gomez-Marquez, Jose; Srivastava, Amit; Bardsley, Ryan Scott; Tracey, Brian (2009-06)
    D-Lab Health provides multi-disciplinary approach to global health technology design via guest lectures and a major project based on fieldwork. We will explore the current state of global health challenges and learn how ...
  • Buehler, Markus; Thonhauser, Timo; Radovitzky, Raúl (2008-06)
    This course explores the basic concepts of computer modeling and simulation in science and engineering. We'll use techniques and software for simulation, data analysis and visualization. Continuum, mesoscale, atomistic and ...
  • Elkins-Tanton, Lindy (2008-06)
    This undergraduate level course presents a basic study in geology. It introduces major minerals and rock types, rock-forming processes, and time scales; temperatures, pressures, compositions, structure of the Earth, and ...
  • Mattuck, Arthur (2007-12)
    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 ...
  • Minsky, Marvin (2007-06)
    This course is an introduction to a theory that tries to explain how minds are made from collections of simpler processes. The subject treats such aspects of thinking as vision, language, learning, reasoning, memory, ...
  • Antràs, Pol (2007-06)
    This course provides a graduate-level introduction to the field of international trade. It examines the theory of international trade and foreign investment with applications in commercial policy. Topics include gains from ...
  • Drake, Elisabeth; Incropera, Frank; Tester, Jefferson W.; Golay, Michael (2007)
    This course assesses current and potential future energy systems, covers resources, extraction, conversion, and end-use, and emphasizes meeting regional and global energy needs in the 21st century in a sustainable manner. ...
  • Summons, Roger (2006-12)
    This course covers all aspects of molecular biosignatures from their pathways of lipid biosynthesis, the distribution patterns of lipid biosynthetic pathways with regard to phylogeny and physiology, isotopic contents, ...
  • Bernard, John A. (2006-12)
    This course introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. It covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point ...
