6.004 Computation Structures

Class Info

Introduces architecture of digital systems, emphasizing structural principles common to a wide range of technologies. Multilevel implementation strategies; definition of new primitives (e.g., gates, instructions, procedures, and processes) and their mechanization using lower-level elements. Analysis of potential concurrency; precedence constraints and performance measures; pipelined and multidimensional systems. Instruction set design issues; architectural support for contemporary software structures.

This class has no prerequisites.

24.900 Introduction to Linguistics

Class Info

Studies what is language and what does knowledge of a language consist of. It asks how do children learn languages and is language unique to humans; why are there many languages; how do languages change; is any language or dialect superior to another; and how are speech and writing related. Context for these and similar questions provided by basic examination of internal organization of sentences, words, and sound systems. Assumes no prior training in linguistics.

This class has no prerequisites.

24.900 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by A. Albright.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-163.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a HASS S. This class counts as a CI-H.

You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Introduction to Linguistics site or on the 24.900 Stellar site.
