comment Why is light called an 'electromagnetic wave' if it's neither electric nor magnetic?
Coming back to this answer which I gave 3 years ago, I feel it's a bit cryptic. The gist of my thinking is that I don't think peoples questions, if formulated in a misguided (inherently confusing) conception of physics, math and language, should maybe not be answered in their own terms. This just reinforces their ideas and turns them into people who themselves give non-explanatory explanations (answers that just move the question around).

@ChrisWhite: But it's easier than doing the same thing by hand.

comment Kerr metric Christoffel symbols
Nice. In a similar spirit (on the Robertson-Walker kind of metrics in different coordinates), I found this and this reference very helpful.

comment Why isn't the path integral rigorous?
It's 'excellent and pedagogical' compared to what other presentation?

comment Which values of the Riemann zeta funtion at negative arguments come up in physics?
I guess your thesis is finished by now, where can it be read?

comment General solution of the four-vector with each component satisfying the wave-equation
@KyleKanos: Mhm, how do you define homogeneity, if you have to know the equation to see it it's homogenous? If $D$ is any operator, the equation $D\phi=0$ is homogenous w.r.t. $\phi$ and the equation $D\phi=f$ (where $f$ a function of $\phi$) isn't. Btw. the field $A(x):=\int B(p)\,{\mathrm e}^{i\,p,x}\,{\mathrm d}p$ is also a solution to the Helmholtz equation $(\frac{\partial^2}{\partial x^2}+k^2)A(x)=0$, if $p^2=k^2$ for each $p$.

comment General solution of the four-vector with each component satisfying the wave-equation
@KyleKanos: Greens functions don't concern a differential equation which is homogenous everywhere. Regarding thread pointing out that $(ip)^2=-m^2$ might help.

comment How does a heated constant volume flow behave, for an expanding flow tube leading into the free atmosphere
@tpg2114: Thanks for the response. Something more: Do you know rules of thumb to guess the temperature drop due to heat loss through the metal wall? (That might also depend on the metal in some way, I don't know how.)

comment How does a knife cut things at the atomic level?
You say "For this reason, many materials (such as metals, which are soft) are intentionally manufactured to be grainy." Do you mean this literally - i.e. are the manufacturers aware of the theory - or has is just grown as the best solution empirically?

Just stumbled upon $\frac{1}{e}$ as probability: 37% stopping rule.

comment Is there an accepted axiomatic approach to general relativity?
In light of the two answers already given, and the specification of general relativity via some axioms not even including the field equations, I also want to point those this Wikipedia link with about 50 metric theory alternatives to general relativity.
