Yo!

Greetings!

I have been active member at MyMathForum, mainly lurking in the physics sub-forum page there and helping out with the odd maths and physics question. I learned a lot from that site, so I'm hoping to come here and learn more here too

I currently work as a software engineer for a building thermal physics company focused on simulations of thermal and mass transport in building environments, but my background is a PhD in stellar astrophysics with a focus on computational models of stellar nucleosynthesis.

benit13 - Since you're an astrophysicist I could use some advice. I've decided to learn more astrophysics and cosmology. Have you read the astrophysics text by Carroll and Ostlie? If so would you recommend it for my purpose? To recommend that you should know my background. I have a BA in physics and math (graduated 27 years ago) and a grad courses in EM, QM, mechanics and a strong background in relativity. I have friends who are cosmologists and astrophysics. I'm just looking for as much advice I can get. Thanks.
