This is /sci/, the science board. This is a potentially temporary and experimental board addition.
HQ Digital TextbooksDuring undergrad I amassed a huge library of textbook pdfs, djvus, etc. but once I actually started trying to study from them I realized how frustrating it is trying to read an entire textbook that has soykafty digitization quality; not searchable, no table of contents/equation links, etc. In cases where I can't find higher quality digitizations of books I prefer to buy physical versions (where at least I can use page-markers) now.
I wanted an excuse to post on this board, so I dug up this article. I'm assuming that if it's on arXiv it passes as science.
I have a question about evolution. I'm not a creationist or anything like that so do keep the bullsoykaf away, it's just a genuine question.

Post your papers generalIn this thread lainons post their own papers.
AcademiaHow do you feel about the state of academia as a whole right now?
Antimatter (anti)threadHi guys, I was wondering, will we ever be able to use antimatter as an energy source in power plants?
Calculus ready?What qualifies someone as being calculus ready? Anyway to test myself? (I cannot seem to find anything free.) I recently took a university exam which was suppose to find my mathematics placement, but it placed me in beginner algebra. I am mostly self taught (my actual teachers were horrible); however, I forgot a lot of stuff. Surprisingly a lot of programming stuff I have down, combinatorics, truth tables, etc. I think my knowledge has gaps that are making me screw up hard on the placement exam. My apologies for the slight rant /sci/.
Harvard vs Oxford vs other stylesHi guys, recently I have been working on my notation style and have noticed big differences between notation styles etc.
Cellular Automata Thread!Discuss, post pictures and give your thoughts and ideas on this fascinating branch of compute science and mathemetics.
Computer science(CS) vs Information technology science(ITS)Hi guys.
EM DriveNow that anti-gravity was proven to just werk, when can we expect to have flying cars just like my sci-fi animes?
Hello, I am currently working on my transfer applications for various universities. I am an engineering student, however my current university doesn't offer the discipline I seek (Biomedical Engineering) so I plan on transferring to one that does next fall.
Weeb culture influence on CS and IT.How much and in what ways does weeb culture influence computer science and IT?
Fellow lainons, I'm a highschool dropout. I don't know any maths beyond your basic arithmetic. I'm programming in Lisp but I also want to learn math. I'd prefer in-depth textbooks but should I just go to khan academy and start from the beginning? I'm hoping to get some solid advice and any books in pdf or other digital formats.

Mine and your research!Why don't we have a thread where we share our own research? Published or not, doesn't matter.
ChaosI have a few questions about chaos theory. Please keep your answers simple as I'm not a physicist.
Here's a thing I was wondering about the other day.

Medicine ThreadAny medicine student here ?
How to start studying biology?I am interested in biopunk and biohacking since last month, so I had the idea of studying biology at home (I already study philosophy and programming). Maybe I will truly like biology, or maybe not.
Space Travel + ColonizationIf humans never landed on the Moon, then why is Elon Musk pushing Mars colonization? Musk's a smart guy, so I'm guessing he knows the Moon landings were fake.
