This article is about computational science applied in physics. For theories comparing the universe to a computer, see digital physics. For the study of the fundamental physical limits of computers, see physics of computation. Computational physics is the study and implementation of numerical analysis to solve problems in physics for which a quantitative theory already exists.[1] Historically, computational physics was the first application of modern computers in science, and is now a subset of...

In matrix theory, Sylvester's formula or Sylvester's matrix theorem (named after J. J. Sylvester) or Lagrange−Sylvester interpolation expresses an analytic function f(A) of a matrix A as a polynomial in A, in terms of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of A.[1][2] It states that[3] where the λi are the eigenvalues of A, and the matrices Ai are the corresponding Frobenius covariants of A, which are (projection) matrix Lagrange polynomials of A. Conditions[edit] Sylvester's formula applies for any ...

The polar jet stream can travel at speeds greater than 180 km/h (110 mph). Here, the fastest winds are coloured red; slower winds are blue. Clouds along a jet stream over Canada. Jet streams are fast flowing, narrow, meandering air currents in the atmospheres of some planets, including Earth.[1] On Earth, the main jet streams are located near the altitude of the tropopause and are westerly winds (flowing west to east). Their paths typically have a meandering shape. Jet streams may start, stop, ...
