What is Recommendation: Definition and 319 Discussions
A recommendation in the European Union, according to Article 288 of the [Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union] (formerly Article 249 TEC), is one of two kinds of non-legal binding acts cited in the Treaty of Rome.
Recommendations are without legal force but are negotiated and voted on according to the appropriate procedure. Recommendations differ from regulations, directives and decisions, in that they are not binding for Member States. Though without legal force, they do have a political weight. The Recommendation is an instrument of indirect action aiming at preparation of legislation in Member States, differing from the Directive only by the absence of obligatory power.
What is the most esoteric (especially in the sense of specialized) music you own and recommend?
To suggest one: Turkwaz's "Nazar". A set of Sufi devotional love songs. Assembled, studied and performed by doctors of music.
I sincerely recommend this comic:
Wiki link to Universal War One.
There are sites where you can read it for free. I'll let you find those yourself (or crazy thought: you could actually buy it!). Using the free sites you'll need a serious add-blocker, Also you'll want to load whole comics as...
TL;DR Summary: I'm currently studying physics (undergrad level). I want to find a project related to thermodynamics to present it to my professor.

I have two PIs who will write the first and second letter. And I'm torn between asking my direct supervisor from one of those labs (who was a grad student when I was working there and we became quite close) and a professor that I had for an upper div class I took during my last year.
My...
Hello, I don't have much to say at the moment, I just signed up on a recommendation from HN and thought I'd give it a try. I'm probably mostly here to lurk and read older stuff, but I figured it was worth making an account and introducing myself.
They've gone through calculus (Essential Calculus by Stewart) but haven't had a formal physics class yet (but a lot of pop-physics reading). I recommended Thinking Physics followed by Conceptual Physics by Hewitt, followed by a meaty calc-based book like Krane or YF, but I wonder if an easy...
Hello all,
I'm taking a graduate stat mech course that does not use a text and could really use a good text for reference and supplemental reading. It's been about 13 years since my last thermodynamics course so hoping such a text would have a decent review of thermodynamic relations and...
Summary: Non-Mathematical Description of the Higgs Boson
I seek a recommendation for a book written for the layman describing the physics of the Higgs boson and related topics. Books that I have found tend towards the history leading up to the discovery of the Higgs or biographies of Peter...

I'm currently a college freshman studying physics. The only previous research experience I had was a virtual one with the EPA on things not really related to physics (it was about 3D printer emissions). I'm trying to look for something for the summer and I've already applied for a bunch...
Hello everyone, I am preparing to write an assignment in math and physics. This assignment will be a sort of exam, where I have to defend it at a later date, I can choose whatever topic I like, as long as it contains math and physics. I need to find something to be my thesis statement (i think...
Dear Everyone,
So I would like some recommendation for high school geometry books that are affordable and preferably e-books.
Why do I need some books on high school geometry? I would like to improve my geometric reasoning. When I took high school geometry a decade and half ago, I was...
One sentence summarization

Hi, folks
I need a recommendation for a potentiometer.
I have an old 8mm projector that uses a 8v 50w bulb. The bulb works off a simple on/off switch. I would like to insert a potentiometer inline between the transformer and bulb to vary the intensity of light the bulb generates.
Even if I...
Math major. You know math classes: lectures, problem sets, tests. If you interact with the prof., it's normally just in office hours unless you do research with them.
I'm looking to get into master's programs. I have excellent grades, but I'm worried about rec letters since I never really got...
I am sure there are some people who were in positions to write letters of recommendation for grad students. What do these letters typically ask for? I am asking because I am requesting letters of recommendation from one of my employers and from 3 professors. My job has little to do with the grad...
I am looking for a textbook or handbook on optical system design. I would prefer one that actually derives equations rather than just slapping down rules of thumb, although I would take the latter. My problem is that I've done a ton of bench top optic setups, but my skills are kind of capped at...
This is probably a long shot but it's worth trying. My question is the following:
What properties of dark matter can we derive from each of the available methods for probing the physics of dark matter?
To elaborate a bit, my understanding is that the evidence for dark matter comes from its...

I'm looking for a book recommendation that has: components of a power system, control of...
Hello there, do you guys have recommendations for math textbooks that i should have?
The math is of course related to physics, I mean the maths that a physics student must know.
I have only found so far on the web forums about physics and math.
I have questions about philosophy and history that I would like to ask.
Does anyone know of good webforums where I can do that? (Since that's forbidden on here :wink:)
Could you provide recommendations for a good modern introductory textbook on differential geometry, geared towards physicists. I know physicists and mathematicians do mathematics differently and I would like to see how it is done by a physicists standard. I have heard Chris Ishams “Modern Diff...
Every explanation about scaling a 2D vector, or equivalently having a line segment PQ on cartesian plane and then find a point R on the line PQ satisfying PR/PQ = r (fixed given r) starts with that one specific case in the picture. A formula for the coordinates of R is then given for that case...
I'm looking for recommendations about advanced calculus books. I'm interested in going further and deeper than nth-order linear differential equations, but overall as a Physics student I'm deeply interested in being very, very comfortable dealing with line, surface and volume integration...
