Теория отраслевых рынков (Industrial Organization)

About this course: Курс посвящен факторам, влияющим на размер компаний и структуру рынка. Почему на одних рынках преобладают малые компании, а на другом крупные? Продавцы принимают решения стратегически, однако их стимулы в свою очередь зависят от структуры рынка и от предшествующих решений. Как разделить между зоной предопределенных и свободных решений? Например, сговор как модель ценового поведения – предопределен структурой рынка или служит результатом свободного волеизъявления? Способны ли укоренившиеся на рынке продавцы препятствовать входу новичков, защищая свою рыночную долю и свою прибыль? Каковы лучшие способы предотвращения ценовых сговоров продавцов? Нужно ли (или по крайней мере желательно) запрещать или ограничивать слияния между крупными продавцами? Есть ли необходимость для государственной политики налагать ограничения на условия договоров между производителем и дистрибьютором? Как в этих условиях должна быть организована государственная политика (применение антимоноп…

User Research and Design

User Research and Design

About this course: In this course you will learn and practice techniques of user research and early UI design exploration. First, you will learn and practice several techniques for user research, including in-person research and survey and log-analysis techniques. Then, you will learn to analyze and deliver user research in forms that support UI design, including personas, use cases, tasks, and scenarios. Finally, you will learn and practice ideation techniques that start from user research and broadly generate potential design ideas.

An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python (Part 1)

About this course: This two-part course is designed to help students with very little or no computing background learn the basics of building simple interactive applications. Our language of choice, Python, is an easy-to learn, high-level computer language that is used in many of the computational courses offered on Coursera. To make learning Python easy, we have developed a new browser-based programming environment that makes developing interactive applications in Python simple. These applications will involve windows whose contents are graphical and respond to buttons, the keyboard and the mouse. In part 1 of this course, we will introduce the basic elements of programming (such as expressions, conditionals, and functions) and then use these elements to create simple interactive applications such as a digital stopwatch. Part 1 of this class will culminate in building a version of the classic arcade game "Pong".

Introduction to Data Science in Python

About this course: This course will introduce the learner to the basics of the python programming environment, including how to download and install python, expected fundamental python programming techniques, and how to find help with python programming questions. The course will also introduce data manipulation and cleaning techniques using the popular python pandas data science library and introduce the abstraction of the DataFrame as the central data structure for data analysis. The course will end with a statistics primer, showing how various statistical measures can be applied to pandas DataFrames. By the end of the course, students will be able to take tabular data, clean it,  manipulate it, and run basic inferential statistical analyses. This course should be taken before any of the other Applied Data Science with Python courses: Applied Plotting, Charting & Data Representation in Python, Applied Machine Learning in Python, Applied Text Mining in Python, Applied Social Ne…
