Water Structure and Behavior
To quote the author, "Water seems, at first sight, to be a very simple molecule, consisting of just two hydrogen atoms attached to an oxygen atom. Indeed, there are very few molecules that are smaller or lighter. The size of the water molecule, however, belies the complexity of its actions and its unique capabilities and anomalous properties seem to fit ideally into the requirements for life as can no other molecule. A number of explanations of the complex behavior of liquid water have been pu

Jeff Gold Inaugural Lecture - The Leader's Conundrum or 'You cannot lift yourself up by your own shi
The aim of the lecture will be to do demonstrate the need to challenge continuing traditional images of leaders, often depicted at the apex of things, on top of a hill or at the centre of a complex web of activity. I will argue that those nominated as leaders MUST become aware of what I will call the leader's conundrum and complement their inspiration with 99 x perspiration. To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.

Math And Physics Applets
This site provides a large selection of physics and math simulations. There is also fairly comprehensive explanatory information about the science and computation behind the applets. The applets are fairly small, and load quickly (even on dial-up), but are very broad in their coverage of topics. These applets are useful for illustrating physical systems and behavior that can not, in general, observed by experiments.
