comment What is the “direction” of the transition dipole moment? (Understanding Eq. 9.29, Charge and Energy Transfer 3rd Ed, May & Kuhn)
Agree with @michielm. Can you explain? In what setting are the wave functions real? If it isn't real, the unit vector n is a complex vector. What's the meaning of its "direction"?

comment Introduction to Anderson localization
I am reading something called "Localization of waves" by van Tiggelen. Are these the lectures? I have to say they seem more like a review than an introduction to the subject. It's full of references, which is good, but I was looking for something more like an introduction, textbook style.

comment Why there's a whirl when you drain the bathtub?
I that's what happens to hurricanes. In most common scenarios, the bathtub drain is a totally different phenomenon.

comment Coherence, Entanglement, Correlation
You need to consider two systems, but they don't need to be separated in space. For instance, you could consider two properties of the same particle.

Where did you find the name "Heaviside-Feynman formula" for this formula?
