GRASP is a lecture series at the University of Texas at Austin, which is aimed at bringing some of the fundamental concepts and big picture of the GRASP areas to a wider audience (the intended target audience are beginning graduate students). These lectures will be digitally recorded and disseminated by streaming video, audio, and lecture notes through this website, with the goal of establishing an electronic resource for students (and others) wishing to be introduced to the GRASP subject areas. (The plan is for the website to also contain links to survey articles, scanned notes, and other helpful information.) The speakers are selected based in part on their ability to communicate fundamental ideas at a basic level to a broad audience.

iTunes: The GRASP lecture videos are now featured on the U\ T iTunes U site, w\ here they can be downloaded or viewed directly. The iTunes application on a Mac or PC, or an IOS device (iPhone, iPad) using the iT\ \ unes U App is required.
