    BSc in Meteorology with no experience -- Is it reasonable to look for international jobs?

    It depends on the country you are applying to and the country you are from. I was living in a two/third world country at the time I graduated with my BSc., I tried to find jobs internationally without any experience and I failed miserably XD I applied to around 30 companies/institutions, no...

    Physics Job prospects for accelerator physics

    The main accelerator physics job I can think of is that related to medical physics. Currently, the business of medical accelerators is booming... The most widely used ones as far as I know are cyclotrons. They are used to make radioactive injections for PET and SPECT scans. In the time being...

    Are supercomputers profitable?

    When I look at the largest supercomputers, I see governmental institutions and electronic companies. That is, no service providing companies: (wiki) 1- Riken (Funded by the Japanese government) 2- Oak Ridge National Laboratory 3- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 4- National Supercomputing...

    Are supercomputers profitable?

    I am wondering whether supercomputers are profitable! I am no computer engineer/scientist, but it seems that it could be. I tried to search on google, on whether supercomputers are in fact profitable, but I couldn't find a suitable source. Also, with the rise of cloud computing such as AWS, I...

    Quantum Is Zuber's Quantum Field Theory textbook any good?

    Hi, I have been studying Quantum Field Theory this semester! It seems that Shwartz and Peskin are the most popular choices when it comes to studying QFT. But apparantly my professor have another "old" preference. He strongly suggested that we learn QFT from Zuber's book. I have looked at the...

    I Why perturbation theory uses power series?

    Ref1 in my original post claims that using "regular" purterbation is not enough to find all the possible solutions for the following equation ##x^{2}-1=\epsilon e^{x}## But it is enough to find the solutions of ##x^{2}-1=\epsilon x##

    I Why perturbation theory uses power series?

    I am revising perturbation theory from Griffiths introduction to quantum mechanics. Griffiths uses power series to represent the perturbation in the system due to small change in the Hamiltonian. But I see no justification for it! Other than the fact that it works. I searched on the internet a...

    Admissions Postponing starting my Master's degree (Germany)

    Thank you for your reply. Yes I have looked for scholarships. The university does not offer any, and the deadline for all the external scholarships that I know of has passed. Even if there is one, it will take around a month or two for a decision, and I only have around 10 days to decide...

    Admissions Postponing starting my Master's degree (Germany)

    Update The university advised me to basically apply again for the Winter semester. As I understand, this means that I will have to reject the current offer and reapply. The outcome of the Winter semester screening may be positive or negative, and it is not necessarily tied to this year...
