comment Do all black holes have a singularity?
Strictly speaking, all objects gravitationally lens light. One of the main techniques we use to find extra-solar planets is micro-lensing. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Is it possible that all neutron stars are actually pulsars?
That's more or less equivalent to the "if a tree falls in a forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound" question. The answer to which is either "Yes!" or "It's all quantum" depending on your view of life.

comment Mathematica to help for an Hamiltonian problem
I think this one is grey area, leaning towards computing rather than physics. But not voting to close because you attached a nice graph. Always like a good graph.

comment Why is GNUplot so pervasive in Physics when there are much more modern tools?
Voting to close. Not only is this off topic, it's not a physics-related question. It's going to cause an argument. Let's just not go there!
