What is Resource recommendations: Definition and 20 Discussions

A Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) is a unique sequence of characters that identifies a logical or physical resource used by web technologies. URIs may be used to identify anything, including real-world objects, such as people and places, concepts, or information resources such as web pages and books. Some URIs provide a means of locating and retrieving information resources on a network (either on the Internet or on another private network, such as a computer filesystem or an Intranet), these are Uniform Resource Locators (URLs). A URL provides the location of the resource. A URI identifies the resource by name at the specified location or URL. Other URIs provide only a unique name, without a means of locating or retrieving the resource or information about it, these are Uniform Resource Names (URNs). The web technologies that use URIs are not limited to web browsers. URIs are used to identify anything described using the Resource Description Framework (RDF), for example, concepts that are part of an ontology defined using the Web Ontology Language (OWL), and people who are described using the Friend of a Friend vocabulary would each have an individual URI.

    Geometry Confusion about Differential Geometry Books

    I was just browsing through the textbooks forum a few days ago when I came across a post on differential geometry books. Among the others these two books by the same author seem to be the most widely recommended: Elementary Differential Geometry (Barret O' Neill) Semi-Riemannian Geometry with...

    Looking for Readings on Dark Matter

    I am looking for introductions and reviews (papers or books) on the possible observation and the nature of dark matter. This book seems to be a good start, but I would be grateful for any other recommendations that are accessible to people with knowledge of physics at the undergraduate level...

    I Looking for Experimental Data on Isotopes (Nuclear Physics and Engineering)

    So, a website in which I just enter an element or an Isotope and it just lists all the relevant experimental data like mass, mass-defect binding energy etc. Also resources for the absorption data, resources to explore Monte-Carlo simulations, and other calculation tools would be awesome. Just a...

    Quantum Advanced-undegrad/junior post-grad books on QM mathematics

    Hi all, I was wondering if I could get recommendations for texts/notes that delve deeper into the mathematics of QM as well as QM itself than what one finds in standard "Intro to QM" texts. Ideally it'd be presented in the style of Nielsen and Chuang's Quantum Computation book, but in greater...

    Resource recommendations for machine learning

    I am planing to change my field (in PhD) and learn Machine Learning to differentiate different phases of strongly correlated matter. I learned Monte Carlo method in my MS and have intermediate level knowledge of topological insulators. Before completely getting into Machine Learning, I want to...

    QFT books to continue after Schwartz

    I have taken one first QFT course last year which used Matthew Schwartz "Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model" book. The course went all the way to renormalization of QED, although path integrals weren't discussed. Now I want to continue learning QFT and also I want to make a second...

    Good resources to practice transistor amplifiers?

    Hey guys this isn't so much a homework question as it is a learning question. Any good resources online that could help me practice calculating current/voltage gains as well as input/output resistances for BJT and MOSFET amplifier circuits? I can't really find any resources that give me problems...

    Calculus What do you call these problems and where can I find more

    For example - the field due to a thin rod , proving shell theorem, moment of inertia, shape of a metal disk held over a flame, etc.. In all of these you cleverly use infinitismal elements with the appropriate conditions and integrate. I am looking for more of these infinitismal element physics...
