Description

The course provides a survey of the theory and application of time series methods in econometrics. Topics covered will include univariate stationary and non-stationary models, vector autoregressions, frequency domain methods, models for estimation and inference in persistent time series, and structural breaks. We will cover different methods of estimation and inferences of modern dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models (DSGE): simulated method of moments, maximum likelihood and Bayesian approach. The empirical applications in the course will be drawn primarily from macroeconomics. The course provides a survey of the theory and application of time series methods in econometrics.

6.890 Algorithmic Lower Bounds: Fun with Hardness Proofs (MIT) 6.890 Algorithmic Lower Bounds: Fun with Hardness Proofs (MIT)

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV lectures. 6.890 Algorithmic Lower Bounds: Fun with Hardness Proofs is a class taking a practical approach to proving problems can't be solved efficiently (in polynomial time and assuming standard complexity-theoretic assumptions like P ≠ NP). The class focuses on reductions and techniques for proving problems are computationally hard for a variety of complexity classes. Along the way, the class will create many interesting gadgets, learn many hardness proof styles, explore the connection between games and computation, survey several important problems and complexity classes, and crush hopes and dreams (for fast optimal solutions).

21G.068J The Invention of French Theory: A History of Transatlantic Intellectual Life since 1945 (MIT) 21G.068J The Invention of French Theory: A History of Transatlantic Intellectual Life since 1945 (MIT)

Description

In the decades following the Second World War, a cluster of extraordinary French thinkers were widely translated and read in American universities. Their works were soon labeled as "French Theory." Why would sharing the same nationality make authors such as Lacan, Cixous, Derrida, Foucault or Debord, ambassadors of a specifically "French" theory? The course will explore the maze of transatlantic intellectual debates since 1945 and the heyday of French existentialism. We will study the debates on communism, decolonization, neo‐liberalism, gender, youth culture and mass media. This course is taught in English.

The Philosophy of Death

Description

This course provides an in-depth introduction to the philosophical problems surrounding death; it is organized around the lectures of Shelly Kagan, Professor of Philosophy at Yale University, who develops his own philosophy of death over the length of the course. Its major purpose, aside from familiarizing the student with the writings of major philosophers on the subject of death, is to teach one how to think about death philosophically—to decide what to believe about death and to provide careful and convincing arguments for those beliefs. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Philosophy 201)

Psychotherapy

Description

Psychotherapy refers to the practices clinical psychologists use to treat mental disorders. While “therapy” can denote any intervention undertaken with the goal of healing someone (including medicinal treatments for physical problems), psychotherapy is specific in that it uses certain cognitive, behavioral, and emotional regulation techniques. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Psychology 404)

FLO's story - a Facebook Learning Object.

Description

FLO's Story is a Facebook Learning Object (FLO) for health and social care students. The aim of the learning object is to develop students understanding of, and empathy with, older people with persistent pain. The FLO presents the experience of living with persistent pain in the form of a fictitious older person's (Called Florence - Flo) Facebook entries and interactions with Facebook Friends. The storyline was written by a professional playwright and based upon older people's accounts of living with persistent pain. Within this resource are two files, the first directs the individual (student or educator) to FLO's story on Facebook and how to access it and use it. The second is a blueprint manual for educators which provides step-by-step instructions on how to create their own FLO's

14.384 Time Series Analysis (MIT)

Description

The course provides a survey of the theory and application of time series methods in econometrics. Topics covered will include univariate stationary and non-stationary models, vector autoregressions, frequency domain methods, models for estimation and inference in persistent time series, and structural breaks. We will cover different methods of estimation and inferences of modern dynamic stochastic general equilibrium models (DSGE): simulated method of moments, maximum likelihood and Bayesian approach. The empirical applications in the course will be drawn primarily from macroeconomics.Recommended CitationFor any use or distribution of these materials, please cite as follows:Anna Mikusheva, course materials for 14.384 Time Series Analysis, Fall 2007.

2.782J Design of Medical Devices and Implants (MIT)

Description

This design course targets the solution of clinical problems by use of implants and other medical devices. Topics include the systematic use of cell-matrix control volumes; the role of stress analysis in the design process; anatomic fit, shape and size of implants; selection of biomaterials; instrumentation for surgical implantation procedures; preclinical testing for safety and efficacy, including risk/benefit ratio assessment evaluation of clinical performance and design of clinical trials. Student project materials are drawn from orthopedic devices, soft tissue implants, artificial organs, and dental implants.

6.890 Algorithmic Lower Bounds: Fun with Hardness Proofs (MIT)

Description

6.890 Algorithmic Lower Bounds: Fun with Hardness Proofs is a class taking a practical approach to proving problems can't be solved efficiently (in polynomial time and assuming standard complexity-theoretic assumptions like P ≠ NP). The class focuses on reductions and techniques for proving problems are computationally hard for a variety of complexity classes. Along the way, the class will create many interesting gadgets, learn many hardness proof styles, explore the connection between games and computation, survey several important problems and complexity classes, and crush hopes and dreams (for fast optimal solutions).
