    MIT's open course ware

    An update on MIT's open course ware project

    MIT's open couse ware project is moving along slowly but surely. Their goal is to have the material from all of their courses online in ten years.

    hears one in their mathematics section that may interest a few:

    18.996 Topics in Theoretical Computer Science - Internet Research Problems, Spring 2002

    We will discuss numerous research problems that are related to the internet. Sample topics include: routing algorithms such as BGP, communication protocols such as TCP, algorithms for intelligently selecting a resource in the face of uncertainty, bandwidth sensing tools, load balancing algorithms, streaming protocols, determining the structure of the internet, cost optimization, DNS-related problems, visualization, and large-scale data processing. The seminar is intended for students who are ready to work on challenging research problems. Each lecture will discuss:

    methods used today

    issues and problems

    formulation of concrete problems

    potential new lines of research

    A modest amount of background information will be provided so that the importance and context of the problems can be understood. No previous study of the internet is required, but experience with algorithms and/or theoretical computer science at the graduate/research level is needed.

    OCW is a large-scale, Web-based electronic publishing initiative funded jointly by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and MIT. Its goals are to:

    1. Provide free, searchable, coherent access to MIT's course materials for educators in the non-profit sector, students, and individual learners around the world.
    wow..MIT!...thanks for the link tedob
