Weekly Dance Class: Stanford students will fully participate as dancers, and creative partners, in the Stanford Neuroscience Health Center's ongoing "Dance for Parkinson's" community dance class for people with PD. This Community Engaged Learning component provides opportunity to engage meaningfully with people in the PD community. Dancing together weekly, students will experience firsthand the embodied signature values of "Dance for PD" classes: full inclusion, embodied presence, aesthetic and expressive opportunity for creative engagement, and community-building in action. A weekly debriefing session within Friday's class time will allow students to integrate seminar material with their movement experiences.nnnNO PRE-REQUISITES: No prior dance experience required. Beginners are welcome.

## NENS 250S: Windows Into the Brain: Unlocking Mysteries through Neurologic Disease

Dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson¿s disease, stroke, brain tumors, MS, traumatic brain injury, headaches, and many other neurologic diseases inflict a tremendous toll on the individual and society. In this course, using material adapted from what is taught second-year medical students at the Stanford School of Medicine, we will explore different neurologic ailments to provide a window into the mysteries of brain function (and dysfunction). All that is needed is a solid background in high school biology, and the burning desire to dive deep into the complex and fascinating world of clinical neuroscience. Students will be provided the background neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and neuropathology that is necessary to understand the underpinnings, presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of some of the most common diseases that affect the central nervous system. Lectures are taught by clinical faculty from the Department of Neurology & Neurological Sciences and will use real cases, neuroimaging, and videos in an interactive and stimulating setting. Students will learn about the cutting-edge technologies used in 2020 in Neurology and Neurosurgery to manage patients with these illnesses. Get ready for an exciting and dynamic sneak peek into medical school and the mysteries of the human brain!

## OIT 344: Design for Service Innovation

Design for service innovation is an experiential course in which students work in multidisciplinary teams to design new services (including but not limited to web services) that will address the needs of an underserved population of users. Through a small number of lectures and guided exercises, but mostly in the context of specific team projects, students will learn to identify the key needs of the target population and to design services that address these needs. Our projects this year will focus on services for young adult survivors of severe childhood diseases. For the first time ever, children who have cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, major cardiac repairs, organ transplants, genetic metabolic disorders, and several forms of cancer are surviving. The first wave of these survivors is reaching young adulthood (ages 18-25). Many aspects of the young adult world are not yet user-friendly for them: applying to and then entering college, adherence to required medication and diet,

Our projects this year will focus on services for young adult survivors of severe childhood diseases. For the first time ever, children who have cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, major cardiac repairs, organ transplants, genetic metabolic disorders, and several forms of cancer are surviving. The first wave of these survivors is reaching young adulthood (ages 18-25). Many aspects of the young adult world are not yet user-friendly for them: applying to and then entering college, adherence to required medication and diet, prospects for marriage and parenthood, participation in high school or college sports, driving, drinking, drugs, and more. Our aspiration is to develop services to improve these young adults? options for a fulfilling and satisfying life. The course is open to graduate students from all schools and departments: business (MBA1, MBA2, PhD, Sloan), Medicine (medical students, residents, fellows and postdocs), engineering (MS and PhD), humanities, sociology, psychology, education, and law. Students can find out more about this course at:
http://DesignForService.stanford.edu; GSB Winter Elective BBL Jan 10th, 12 noon - 1 pm; D-School Course Exposition Feb 3rd, time TBA. Admission into the course by application only. Applications will be available at
http://DesignForService.stanford.edu on Jan 13th. Applications must be submitted by Feb 4th midnight. Students will be notified about acceptance to the course by Feb 7th .

## OIT 602: Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management I

In tandem with
OIT 603, this course explores the application of stochastic modeling and optimization to two closely related problem areas: (a) dynamic price selection, and (b) dynamic allocation of limited capacity to competing demands. As background, students are assumed to know stochastic process theory at the level of Statistics 217-218, microeconomics at the level of Economics 202N, and optimization theory at the level of MS&E 211, and to have some familiarity with the basic ideas of dynamic programming. Additional dynamic programming theory will be developed as needed for the applications covered. Emphasis will be on current research topics, especially in the realm of airline revenue management.

## OIT 611: The Drift Method: from Stochastic Networks to Machine Learning

Overview: This course is an introduction to the drift method in sequential decision-making and stochastic systems, a family of simple, yet surprisingly powerful, meta-algorithms that in each step the greedily and incrementally minimizes some potential function. Manifested in various forms, the drift method powers some of the most popular algorithmic paradigms in stochastic networks (MaxWeight, BackPressure), oneline learning, optimization and machine learning (SGD, Langevin dynamics, TD-learning). Using the Drift Method as a unifying theme, we will survey major developments in these areas and answer questions such as: What may explain the method¿s effectiveness? How can we rigorously evaluate its performance? We will develop rigorous probabilistic and optimization methodologies for answering these questions, such as Lyapunov functions and stability theory, state-space collapse, weak convergence and Stein¿s method. In terms of application topics, the course is roughly evenly divided bet

We will develop rigorous probabilistic and optimization methodologies for answering these questions, such as Lyapunov functions and stability theory, state-space collapse, weak convergence and Stein¿s method. In terms of application topics, the course is roughly evenly divided between stochastic queueing networks versus optimization + machine learning. Objective: For students to acquire fundamental methodologies that can be applied to tackling problems in dynamic decision-making, stochastic modeling and machine learning. Target Audience: Graduate students / advanced undergraduates with a solid grasp of probability and stochastic processes (Stat 310A / MS&E 321, or equivalent). Strong background and interests in queueing networks is highly recommend.
