I'm a MS/BS computer science guy who is wondering about why lightning can't (or can?) be used to solve NP complete problems efficiently, but I don't understand the physics behind lightning, so I'm ...
As I understand it (and admittedly it's a weak grasp), a computer processes information irreversibly (AND gates, for example), and therefore has some minimum entropy increase associated with its ...
I am reading the book Computer Simulation of Liquids by Allen and Tildesley (here is another link). On page 80, the authors describe the leap-frog algorithm, which is used extensively in molecular ...
What is some good free software for doing physics calculations? I'm mainly interested in symbolic computation (something like Mathematica, but free).
I recently co-authored a paper (not online yet unfortunately) with some chemists that essentially provided answers to the question, "What do chemists need from computer scientists?" This included the ...
I am trying to implement Takens' correlation dimension for noisy time series formula given in Eq (8) in (Estimation of the dimension of a noisy attractor. Schouten JC, Takens F, van den Bleek CM ...
