Distribuciones de Equilibrio en Sistemas Económicos y Físicos - Distributions of Equilibrium

Distribuciones de Equilibrio en Sistemas Económicos y Físicos - Distributions of Equilibrium

In chapter 1, we are concerned with the explanation of the exponential and Guassian distributions from a geometrical point of view. It is explained how these equilibrium distributions are reached just with the equipartition hypothesis in open and closed statistical systems. In chapter 2, two nonlinear evolution operators (models) in the space of distributions are built. It is found that the final equilibrium states (fixed points) for these operators are just the exponencial and the Gaussian distributions. In chapter 3, some simulations of the operators introduced in Ch. 2 are shown for different initial distributions in both models. (This Graduation Thesis was defended by Iván Allué on July 12, 2017, at the Faculty of Science, Univ. of Zaragoza, Spain).

The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (August 6th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week’s news events. There are three BONUS crosswords included - all with the answers of course. The resource is a pdf document so it's quick and easy to download and store on a flash drive. What happened in our world last week? The Philippines president called the North Korean leader a ‘chubby fool’ for firing rockets. China and India are involved in a border dispute. An Indian boxer beat a Chinese boxer but offered to give the title back to the Chinese boxer as a peace gesture. GM recalled almost a million trucks. Pearson, the educational publisher announced it would cut 10% of of its jobs. Ethnic violence in the DRC resulted in more than 250 people killed. Australia’s greenhouse emissions rose to their highest level ever. Dutch police arrested criminals who stole iPhones from a moving truck. A heatwave spread across Europe and monsoon flooding killed hundreds of people in India. Police in Sierra Leone banned groups of joggers. It’s not so much what happened but why, and hopefully this is what the students will be talking about as they complete the crossword and go to their next lesson. Why did only two cities apply to host the 2024 and 2028 Summer Olympics? Why is the Polish government still allowing logging in its ancient forest? Why are George and Amal Clooney helping 3000 Syrian children attend school in Lebanon? And why was Martin Shkreli the most hated man?
