I am currently a post-doc at the Physics department at the University of Sao Paulo. My interests are in Statistical Physics, stochastic processes and magnetism. More importantly, I really value simple and solid explanations to important problems in any science.

comment Radioactive decay, why such unintuitive formula?
There are many many many atoms, but each atom is very very unlikely to decay at a given instant of time: this justifies the use of a continuous equation even though, by design, the system is itself discretized.
