    Losing ability of solving problems.

    Hi guys! Well, when I was a B.Sc and/or a M.Sc student I used to solve lots of exercises from books in order to prepare myself for exams. I was really familiar with many methods for solving ODE and PDE by hand and I was comfortable by doing it. But since 3 years I am only working in research...

    From turbulent flows to astrophysic

    Hi! I would like to know your opinion about an eventual jump from a PhD in mathematical modeling of turbulent flows to a postdoc in astrophysics? Do you think something like this is possible? or the only option is to do a second PhD? Thanks in advance for your answers =).
