Large river networks -- such as those that funnel into the Colorado and Mississippi rivers -- may seem to be permanent features of a landscape. In fact, many rivers define political boundaries that have been in place for centuries. But scientists have long ...
MIT 6.041SC Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability, Fall 2013Instructor: Katie Szeto
This lecture discusses the theory of quantum mechanics (QM), modeling and simluation, why QM is useful, and how it grew out of classical physics, and concludes with some simple examples.
A short documentary of the history of the subminiature vacuum tube. This 16 minute film was produced by the MIT Museum with funding from Raytheon in 1986 for the MIT Industrial Liaison Program.

The aim of this video lesson is to make it easier for students to understand an introduction to the concept of Multiple Regression Analysis, MRA, based on a property valuation setting.
11.S942 Behavior and Policy: Transportation Research Seminar 2/5/2014 Class 1-1 Session 1, from the School of Architecture and Planning
Project Laboratory in Mathematics is a course designed to give students a sense of what it's like to do mathematical research.
In this video, students learn about layer-by-layer assembly of polyelectrolyte multilayer films. They see how the chemical structure of the macromolecules used in the films affects the function and properties of the film.
In this video, Niaja Farve, doctoral student of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, explains repetitive programming techniques, a very fundamental and essential programming skill.
In this video, students are introduced to the concept of chiral molecules and the relationship between molecular structure and function. Students first analyze some everyday objects and determine if they are chiral or achiral.
This video leads students through descriptions of the motion of two objects observed from two frames of reference: a rotating turntable, and the relatively stationary ground frame.
In this video, Legos are used to create possible molecular level models of a buffer. This is done to better understand how a buffer works and the components a buffer must contain in order to be effective.
This video discusses negative and positive feedback loops, how they tie into the body’s mechanism of internal regulation, and what happens when these mechanisms fail.
This video motivates the statistical mechanics approach through material structure and behavior. Entropy is introduced as a natural variable whose derivative with respect to energy is zero when the number of microstates is maximized.
This video provides an introduction to conditional probability and its calculations. The first chapter reviews basic probability terminology and introduces standard conditional probability notation using a simple marble drawing example.
In this video, viewers explore the differences and similarities between thermal equilibrium and steady state temperature.
This video leads students through using linear algebra to model a gear train.
This video leads students through modeling the regular, non-linear pendulum with a differential equation. We explore why solutions to a differential equation are an infinite family of functions. We show that to determine a specific solution to this second order differential equation, two ...
