    Topological insulators and their optical properties

    I have tried to write down the boundary conditions in this case and looked into them. As conditions i) and ii) were trivial, i looked into iii) and iv) for information that I could use. But all I got was that for the transmitted wave to have an angle, the reflective wave should also have an...

    How can I create an equation in matlab for image processing?

    Here is the documentation for the 2DFFT: how would I go about creating this formula on matlab to apply it on an image? My guess is that I need to create the equation and then multiply it to the image I need such as: $$U = VI$$ where V is my...

    Physics Modeling of a Gas

    This was the equation that they showed me. I thought P was for pressure, V for Volume, T for Temperature, R for Gas Constant, and n for the number of moles. Was I correct for the initials?

    B Is there such a thing as Gm/r?

    Since Fg = Gmm/r2and Coulomb's law being similar to that: Fe = kQq/r2, and we also have E = kQ/r2 and g = Gm/r2 being alike, I was wondering if there's anything that corresponds to the potential equation kQ/r. I converted it myself and figured that it's going to be Gm/r, and I'm not sure if a...

    B Equations vs. Functions Quadratic and Cubic?

    So if i take the rules that a straight vertical line drawn through the function with more than one intersection implies it is not a function, to mean that the quadratic equation for a circle is not a function. Furthermore, it also implies a cubic equation, such as x^3 can be a function, because...
