May 10 comment PDE: Why do they have the wrong units? Right, I guess the variable names are often not reflecting the units in these equations (implicit). May 10 comment PDE: Why do they have the wrong units? @copper.hat Okay, maybe it's the case that the notation is often funky. Using $R,L,C$ really isn't correct (these are now linear densities). Thanks! May 10 comment PDE: Why do they have the wrong units? @copper.hat So are you implying that in all PDEs where the units appear off, that the multiplicative constants must be dimensionally normalized?

May 27 asked Classifying A Matrix - matrix representation of an operator with linear operators as entries Mar 7 comment Lanczos Algorithm - Searching for Multiple Eigenvalues w/ Seeding Strategy This is exactly the sort of comment I was looking for. I sincerely appreciate your time in reading my question. I now have something to potentially debug in my code. (I'm actually rather surprised that I didn't realize this, given that in QM the eigenvecs must be orthogonal and that all of the observable operators are Hermitian).

Jan 14 comment Laplacian Operator Represented as a Matrix - Problem Finding the Hermiticity @DavideGiraudo I could add that the amplitude and phase (if complex) of the entries will change depending on the value of F[n]...destroying hermiticity. It looks like you've taken the coefficients of the matrix entries instead of the definition. Jan 14 comment Laplacian Operator Represented as a Matrix - Problem Finding the Hermiticity @DavideGiraudo I do not understand your response. Could you expand your answer a bit? It's possible that you don't see what I'm doing. I'm not trying to take the Laplacian of general functions evaluated at some point F[n]. I'm discretizing the operator. Just to add a bit more: F[1] != F[2], in general. Jan 14 asked Laplacian Operator Represented as a Matrix - Problem Finding the Hermiticity Nov 16 awarded Tumbleweed
