    I have an engine cycle in mind looking for it's name

    Wow, hadn't checked on this thread in a while but thanks for the post. ...appreciate it.

    Interesting :cool:

    A poll about publishing

    For instance, http://www.fourmilab.ch/etexts/einstein/specrel/specrel.pdf although you may debate the relevance to today's publishing formalities.

    Ha Ha, nice picture.

    A poll about publishing

    I find this to be a nice response.

    A poll about publishing

    Agreed. In fact that is well put...I also see the merit of including references simply so that readers have the opportunity to read more about topics/ related topics to what an author is discussing. Accessibility is always helpful.

    A poll about publishing

    . It appears that most of the replies on here are strongly favorable towards references. I quoted the above person because it pertains most directly to the questions in my post about the level of assumption out there. I, having always included references in published academic works of my own...

    A poll about publishing

    I wanted to gain a sense about some of the opinions floating around out there about publishing works with out the use of references. Of course, the vast majority of papers certainly include references these days. However, in principle it is still possible to write a paper that does not...

    I have an engine cycle in mind looking for it's name

    Isothermal usuall does not generally correspond to a straight line on P-V diagram. For instance for an ideal gas nRT=PV. At a constant temperature (i.e isothermal) this means that PV=constant; if the volume changes, the pressure must also change. So in a step where pressure is changed and...

    I have an engine cycle in mind looking for it's name

    Thanks for the reply... ...well, I don't actually think that is a P-V square though, but it's interesting in itself.

    I have an engine cycle in mind looking for it's name

    This is a simple question I have because I am looking at a particular engine cycle, and I can't seem to think of its name...thus it is very difficult to search for discussions of something you don't know the name of. I'll describe the cycle, if any one knows the name of the cycle please let me...

    A beutifully simple interpretation of Vector Potential

    The field is external to the particle(s) but still part of the system being modeled...I don't think this is a "self interaction" with the particle....so yeah,..I agree if that is what you mean. It is still a vector function though. "A" acts on the particle but still multi-dimensional field...

    A beutifully simple interpretation of Vector Potential

    Actually, that is a direct contradition to the texts that I have. Cannoncial moments is exatctly what IS conserved. In fact this is what makes it possible to derive such things as relativistic wave equations i.e. dirac and klein-gordon types. I have more confidence in the Oxford book currently.

    A beutifully simple interpretation of Vector Potential

    Ok...first I appreciate the comments, it anything some of the varying points sparked some curiosity in me. It's kind of funny that you said this Bill_K, because I was just about to write you about thiis...but I was in part referring to cannonical momentum....I was reasonably sure about what I...

    A beutifully simple interpretation of Vector Potential

    This is not my theory, or even new, rather pertaining to established physical knowledge, but I simply find it fascinating. It pertains to several areas of physics, and/or variational mathematics, so I've posted it here in the General Physics area. My reasons for posting is because it is one...
