Re: multiple solutions in schaum's outline

I agree, that makes sense based on what I am playing with now. I numerically evaluated the integral for a few different cases and it agrees with what you guys are saying. This is what I had guessed was the case (no pun intended) but I wanted to see what some other people thought - it would be nice i...

multiple solutions in schaum's outline

In Schaum's outline "Mathematical Handbook of Formulas and tables" in the chapter on indefinite integrals (chap 17 of the 1999 copyright version) once and a while two solutions are provided. For example in the section of "integrals involving sinax and cosax" on page 89, integral ...

Re: Tattoo?

Speaking of tattoos made me remember one a guy in my lab has - the Heisenberg uncertainty principle on his calf. (deltax deltap >= hbar/2) About the one you showed, a little too edgy for my tastes.

Re: A night at the Clintons

Yes, I would agree with that. Minus his artistic ability(my artistic ability plateaued at the level of making a good free body diagram). But one cannot remove the heads from his comics and replace them with electrons or k-mesons literally.

Re: A night at the Clintons

Back that statement up. What have I ripped off? The rest of them are to my knowledge my ideas. The style may be similar to xkcd but not the ideas. He doesn't have a license to plot things that are funny or to make puns, but he did come up with things to plot and things to make puns about.

A night at the Clintons

Well, I thought it was time for a tribute comic to XKCD, so I ripped off his angular momentum idea with a "corollary" of my own.

True. At least were not English majors... Also, I did a comic about college choices, and thus far it has turned out to be true based on the engineering friends I have and the few art major people I know. http://www.quarkquark.com/electronman/index.htm?comic=26#topAnch I guess the reason I am going f...

If money is what you're interested in, Ph.Ds in general are almost always provide a negative return on your investment. ... For the record, I'm a PhD student studying photonics in Canada. Most phd programs in science pay you to go to school. I think if you can get in and get a stipend, why not go f...

Keeperofdakeys, So where do you put the php script? I did not see anything on the source of the link you posted? Is it something that has to be in the same directory as the html code?

Re: electron man comic

Thanks guys. I am currently implementing one of those fancy "strip" features so people do not have to click on every link. But it looks like I am going to have to resize all of my comics (48 of them!), this will be good though, some of them could use a little mending as well as resizing. -...

webcomic - electron man [updated 10/7/09]

I have been making a web comic of my own for almost two years now, inspired by xkcd. I try to keep them all related to physics/math and not to esoteric(I have failed here). Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
