Physics Student, almost into graduate school - loves "A Bit of Fry and Laurie"!

EDIT: QUITE a trimester into grad school, and still LOVES "A Bit of Fry and Laurie"!

EDIT: More than a year into grad school, and still LOVES "A Bit of Fry and Laurie"! Might see a doctor about it!

comment recommendation for a physics history/non-fiction book
Cool! Thanks. these do seem to fit the bill. I didn't ask for one encompassing all of physics, but specific problems, e.g Quasiparticles (how they appear in different contexts all over the place - and how one is different from the other), for light reading - but aware of the technical details all the same.

ok. Is there a part of SE where book questions be acceptable?

comment Relativistic equivalent of a spring-force?
The review mentioned is a very good exploration of the limitations that a rigid body faces in STR. The OP has to set up his simulation such that at any point the tension doesn't exceed the gradient of energy density in the material. Also, the results seem to depend on the material parameters from this. Any progress till now @Neurofuzzy ?

comment Algorithm for identifying planes in a Bravais Lattice
As for inspection, I am trying to code this - and intuition doesn't aid in this regard. +1 for the nudge in the correct direction, but sorry for not marking as the correct answer. My problem still stays.

comment Algorithm for identifying planes in a Bravais Lattice
Thank you. This answer is very helpful. It made me think of the following - when inverted the relation between the two looks thus: $$\begin{pmatrix}h\\ k\\ l\end{pmatrix} = T^{-1} P \begin{pmatrix}\alpha\\ \beta \\ 0\end{pmatrix}$$ One may restrict $\gamma$ to be integral if the $\vec{d}$ has the length $d = \vec{G}\cdot \frac{\vec{t}}{\vert\vec{t}\vert}$. What is left now is that we can search for all $\gamma\in [0,1)$ and identify the lattice points "in" a plane. While that is a satisfactory state of affairs, there is the problem that I also need to identify a unit cell in plane.
