Making the Right Moves: A Practical Guide to Scientific
Management for Postdocs and New Faculty
Based on courses held in 2002 and 2005 by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and
HHMI, this book is a collection of practical advice and experiences from
seasoned biomedical investigators. The second edition contains three new
chapters on laboratory leadership, project management, and teaching and course
My research topic is too different from string theory!. but i think this not so old opinion of Proff. Lee Smolin about world research system weaknesses is very beneficial to read. and have convincing arguments in neccessity of changes in this system. Read this. it is not related to string theory,

I think when a reaction occurs in fluid state. the quantum effects may become important in its simulation. does any body know any thing about quantum effects in fluid mechanics? did any one a multiscale Simulation in this regard. my knowledge is very limited in this regard. please guide me!.

Integrating Content Detail and Critical Reasoning by Peer Review
Java has very good characteristics as a scientific computation. Its very strong structure make debugging very easier than traditional languages such as MATLAB and Fortran. JVM lead to high portablity of JAVA in Linux and Windows. And Garbage Collector is a real good advantage beneficial for scientific Computation. I think it can be good alternative for C++ and Fortran.
Attached are two Available Lectures in this Regard.
Information in Imechanica is a little dispersed it is good in its present form but is it possible to categorization of information more?
Computational and analytical analysis of wave scattering by Elliptical and Spheroidal inhomogeneities.Submitted by Roozbeh Sanaei on Sat, 2007-10-06 17:47.
This is an interesting power point about major characterisrics of Wave Scattering By Elliptical and Spheroidal Inhomogenities.
Why The Impact Factors of Journals in the field of mechanics is Too Low in comparison with Chemistry?
what's the status of Discrete-to-continuum scale bridging. and it's real application?
Computational or Analytical?
Once you can describe a problem analytically, you should be able to solve the problem straightforward. Moreover, bookkeeping of the related variables is rather easy, enabling you to model your problem in an rather easy fashion. (During my undergraduate courses, I used to check my assignents by Excel). However, implementing such a strategy in software involves a certain amount of problem directed programming - i.e. your code may be valid for a given problem only.
