I found this video while searching through the science entries in iTunes Store ( under the iTunes U dropdown menu ). It's dated to ~ 2008, doesn't contain alot not already known, but it's a nice short piece on the UWM computing facilities for GW research. :-)

As for iTunes U, assuming you use iTunes, there is a terrific number of quality physics and maths videos, entire semester's worth's of courses on quantum mechanics, linear algebra, calculus and more. I recommend the ones from MIT ( USA ) and Oxford ( UK ) especially. Gilbert Strang is just a great math lecturer. You can get these free, with or without iTunes really ( here and here for instance. )

Cheers, Mike.

I find iTunes U a great resource. I am currently working my way through a course on Digital Signal Processing from the University of New South Wales (UNSW)

Digital Signal Processing. How apropos for E@H! I'll look at that one too, as I am currently plowing thru Gilbert Strang's basic linear algebra course at MIT : in the hope of ultimately looking at the discrete Fourier transform, wavelet filters, etc stuff. Which is all in the same corner of the garden.

Cheers, Mike.

My back hurts and my eyes are getting old so looking through my telescope is not as much fun. I am exploring on taking my interest in astronomy in a new direction and that direction is 'Radio Astronomy'.
I exploring on taking small steps and look at ways of observing disturbances in the sun's atmosphere and radio storms on Jupiter in the high frequency band. I am bringing myself up to speed on Software Defined Radio especially GNU Radio. My first step is designing a electronically steerable HF antenna that the neighbours are not going to get p**sed off a me..:-).. Who knows.. in the future I might be looking for my own pulsers:-)
