comment Resolution Limit for Energy Transition Imaging
@DumpsterDoofus Thank you for your comment. I'm still confused on the point of why the electron density is important. Unlike transmission imaging techniques, my understanding is that in florescence, ideally we only want to see the fluorophore protein and thus the specimen can only mess up our measurement. Thats why i'm not sure what to do with the notion of a living cell's electron density. For example, without optics I can't see better then the Ewald sphere because the most a photon can be scattered is 180 degrees.

comment Should a 1D Guassian wave oscillate?
@Kitchi, I am confident there are no errors in the code. I want to know if a pulse like solution should have oscillations as it travels. If I didn't make this clear please rephrase my question.

Sounds like there aren't many.

comment Why is the transition into N proportional to N+1?
@LuboŇ°Motl Thanks for the comment, the quote is actually from a paper, I wonder if you could expand your comment into answer so that I can give you the award...

Can you recommend some literature on new-age metaphysics :-)

comment Why does the universe exhibit three large-scale spatial dimensions?
I wonder if its possible to answer this question, as it asks for not merely the law but a reason for the law. Asking why gravity one should terminate at a phrase like because we observed... Likewise the 3+1 dimension theory exists because quantum experiments were observed - in the same manner as it is increasingly apparent more dimensions might not exist due recent LHC runs.

comment Can high charges (like $1\times 10^{-3}$ coulomb) be acheived?
@MichaelLuciuk does charge stored in a capacitor bank qualify? The largest capacitor is 50 MeJ at 24kV, which means about ~1K Coulombs depending on AC/DC, you may be surprised to learn the trade-off associated with capacitance...

@MANIKANTABORAH you make me sad.

comment Does an oscillating electrical monopole radiate?
Its important to note that the directivity of this oscillation is the worst. You will have a field, but you won't be able to do much with only one.

Don't let Dr Quantum touch you there... He's not a real doctor.

comment Yield Strength versus Ultimate Strength
Can you expound upon the difference between breaking and deformation, for materials such as steel? (i'll give you the check :-) )
