I am looking for a easy-to-use software, which can generate analogues based on one structure. I do not need to teach it what kind of activity compound has, I just need to have the structures generated so I can run it though QSAR (which was already set based on 80 compounds).
Does anyone have experience with this?

Hi, I'm currently working with PAST 4.01 and I have my data organized on a table of 4 columns (treatments) and 45 rows (different bacteria genders) with the amount of genders found in every treatment and they are numbers like these: 6,7E+04 ; 5,2E+05 and 0.
Last week I got diversity indices, diversity t test, diversity permutation test and everything went great. But I had to change just ONE VALUE that wasn't 0 and since then, every time I try to get the rarefaction the program doesn't respond or if I try to get diversity t test and diversity permutation test the values are wrong (it's 0 and trust me, when I did it the first time I got numbers like 0,005 but not just 0). Funny thing is that when I try to get the diversity indices and beta diversity with the same data, results are the same from the first time, it works with those options.
Please if someone knows what am I doing wrong or if this time I'm missing something... I'd really appreciate the help!

I would to obtain a risk map related to the oak habitat using several ecological variables referring to climate change.
Thanks for your help.
Relevant answer
Answer
Antonio Luca Conte There are various software choices available for creating a climate change risk map for an oak ecosystem. Some common choices are:
1. ArcGIS is a geographic information system (GIS) program that may be used to produce comprehensive maps and analyze data. It is capable of analyzing climatic data and creating danger maps for specific ecosystems.
2. QGIS is a free and open-source geographic information system (GIS) program that may be used to build and analyze maps. It shares many of ArcGIS's features and may be used to generate risk maps for specific environments.
3. R is a statistical computing and graphics programming language and software environment. It's commonly used for data analysis and visualization, as well as risk mapping. Many R packages, such as 'raster' and 'dismo,' may be used to construct risk maps.
4. Google Earth Engine is a cloud-based platform for accessing and processing huge volumes of geographical data, including climate data. It may be used to generate risk maps for individual environments.
It should be noted that developing a risk map for a given ecosystem would need an understanding of GIS, data analysis, and modeling. If you lack such information, it may be preferable to seek advice from professionals in the subject, such as ecologists, climatologists, or geologists.

Right now, in 2022, we can read with perfect understanding mathematical articles and books
written a century ago. It is indeed remarkable how the way we do mathematics has stabilised.
The difference between the mathematics of 1922 and 2022 is small compared to that between the mathematics of 1922 and 1822.
Looking beyond classical ZFC-based mathematics, a tremendous amount of effort has been put
into formalising all areas of mathematics within the framework of program-language implementations (for instance Coq, Agda) of the univalent extension of dependent type theory (homotopy type theory).
But Coq and Agda are complex programs which depend on other programs (OCaml and Haskell) and frameworks (for instance operating systems and C libraries) to function. In the future if we have new CPU architectures then
Coq and Agda would have to be compiled again. OCaml and Haskell would have to be compiled again.
Both software and operating systems are rapidly changing and have always been so. What is here today is deprecated tomorrow.
My question is: what guarantee do we have that the huge libraries of the current formal mathematics projects in Agda, Coq or other languages will still be relevant or even "runnable" (for instance type-checkable) without having to resort to emulators and computer archaeology 10, 20, 50 or 100 years from now ?
10 years from now will Agda be backwards compatible enough to still recognise
current Agda files ?
Have there been any organised efforts to guarantee permanent backward compatibility for all future versions of Agda and Coq ? Or OCaml and Haskell ?
Perhaps the formal mathematics project should be carried out within a meta-programing language, a simpler more abstract framework (with a uniform syntax) comprehensible at once to logicians, mathematicians and programers and which can be converted automatically into the latest version of Agda or Coq ?
Relevant answer
Answer
The engineering philosophy behind Coq and the Coq kernel is well worth careful consideration:

Dear community,
What is the code to perform a Fama-MacBeth regression in Stata? I understand how this works theoretically, but I do not understand how this is implemented in Stata. My variables are the 5 factors of the Fama French 5 factor model and 25 portfolios double sorted on size and book-to-market value of equity.
Additionally I have another question as well. That is, in order to test the Fama French 5 factor model, you just regress the factors on one of the portfolios right? In other words, is the correct code to test the 5 factor model:
- tsset date (in order to declare dataset to be time-series data with date as the time variable)
- reg me1bm1 markt smb hml rmw cma (where me1bm1 is the portfolio with lowest marketcap and lowest B/M and the other 5 variables are the 5 factors).
When I use this code I get very strange results, namely that almost all intercepts are significant (which is in contradiction with the Fama French papers). Hence, I am wondering whether there is something wrong with this code. I hope you all could help me with these 2 questions!
Yours truly,

Sreeraj
Relevant answer
Answer
Nowdays there is a lot of hype about node.js in the micro-service field due to its productivity and the great community, and indeed node.js is really a powerful platform for cloud computing development, but don’t forget that all its productivity relays on various layers of abstraction which come with a penalty in performance and a huge stack of components to make it work. But I do not want to start here a polemic about which one is best, this article is about using modern C++ to implement a microservice where the idea is using the modern syntax to reach the level of productivity that node.js provides but with the performance benefits of C++, and if you are like me that loves C++ and its great performance thanks to its zero levels of abstractions, then this article is for you.

Dear Community,
when calculating Skewness and Kurtosis in SPSS (Version 26) versus Amos (Version 22) I get differences in the results between both programs. It isn´t much, but there are slightly differences. For example: Kurtosis SPSS=1.947 versus Kurtosis Amos=1.811. I dont have missing values in my dataset and I am wondering where this difference comes from. Did anyone experienced the same or has an idea why the results differ?
Many thanks in advance.
Relevant answer
Answer
The formulas used are different.
For AMOS, James Arbuckle assumes that only large samples will be used (n>200) and thus SE_sk=sqrt(6/n) and SE_ku=sqrt(24/n).
The general formula that SPSS uses (good for any sample size) are:
SE_sk =sqrt( 6*n*(n-1) / ((n-2)*(n+1)*(n+3)))
SE_ku=sqrt(4*(N^2-1)*(SE_sk)^2 / ((n-3)*(n+5)))
As I said, for large sample sizes the differences are at the 3rd decimal place...

Answer
Wintoki et al. (2012) adapt the procedure for testing the relevance of the instruments in 2SLS settings, that is to say they examined the F-Statistics for the joint significance of the instruments on the instrumented variable after the first stage, which is the reduced form equation where we regress the instrumented variable on all exogenous variables (x) + some some excluded instruments (z).
They carried out two separate procedures, one for the difference equation and for the level equation as they use system GMM estimator. In case you are using differenced GMM then you can follow the procedure for the differenced equation. For each procedure you use the instruments for the corresponding equation, for example, when you do the test for the level equation, use the instruments that were used in the level equation.
For more details you can consult their paper:

The students from the least developed country can not afford the expensive plagiarism checker tool. Further, its almost impossible to finance the paid version. Could you suggest/find the best plagiarism checker free software or webpage for student?.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear respected colleagues,
Related to this valuable discussion thread of Prof. Nabaraj Gautam, please let me point to another critical issue related to plagiarism software-detectors.
My friend was accused of plagiarism. Why?
After about five months, his promotion process to associate professor was rejected because of plagiarism. When he checked the promotion report, he found that one of his papers was accused of plagiarism and with a 100% percentage. The reason is that his manuscript was checked by his co-author using one of these checkers. It took him several months time of following up to solve the problem and removing the manuscript from their database. After that long period, he re-applies the promotion order for the second time.
Therefore, plagiarism software may retain a copy of the manuscript in its database. To state the truth, this is depending upon the settings and type of account subscription.
So, you may face a similar situation when you submit your manuscript after plagiarism checking to a journal. It may be rejected instantly because it would show up 100% similarity index.
To solve the problem, it may take several months time of following up and removing the manuscript from their database.
If there were accusations of plagiarism, it is not well for your reputation, in any meaning.

Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Prof. Abdullah Al-Mamun Bulbul & all the honorable researchers,
Plagiarism is a common problem facing almost all professors. This respected portal (i.e. RG) defines plagiarism as:
The term “plagiarism” has different meanings, but it usually includes copying somebody else’s work without permission.
On the other side, self-plagiarism is when the author republishes portions of his/her own previously written research work while authoring a new work.
I may be somewhat old-fashioned, but please have a look at the following golden principles on how to avoid plagiarism in academic writing, especially Self-Plagiarism:
  1. Never use the "Copy-Paste" trend: Use your own words instead of copying and pasting the text verbatim from others (i.e. reference papers). On the other hand, I don't trust using the rewrite-websites to rephrase the text of other research articles. I only trust my own rephrasing. Needless to say that if you are using your own words, then there is no chance of plagiarism accusing. Try to paraphrase your content as much as you could.
  2. Never repeat yourself: There are many re-published articles that are slightly or even considerably modified, and still not changed!
  3. If you have co-authors, just trust your words!
  4. If you use your own words, there should be no plagiarism issue. In turn, there is no need for the tools of plagiarism checking. Since there is no guarantee that the original content of your manuscript might not be copied and sold to others before it is published by you, I discourage using any free-software checkers for plagiarism; some of them are betrayers. Despite that offline ones are rare and if you are insisting to use anti-plagiarism software, offline checker programs are safer than online ones. On the other side and in case you are again insisting to use anti-plagiarism check, the process should be carried out for the entire research work, literature reviews, for instance, are not an exception.
  5. In some cases, you can paraphrase the sentences (اعادة صياغة الجملة) in the original document. But don't forget to cite the reference.
  6. You must always insist on honesty. Furthermore, you have to always remember that there should be a new added value.
  7. You must always insist on doing real research, not "Wikipedia" research.
  8. Do not put any of your research work anywhere until it is published and tagged with your name. Please wait until the paper is accepted and then published in that journal. Then, upload that research item on any platform you wish.
  9. In my opinion, most of the free-software-checkers for plagiarism don't work effectively. Unfortunately, you have to pay for the sake of getting good results.
  10. Despite that offline ones are rare and if you are insisting to use anti-plagiarism software, offline checker programs are safer than online ones.
  11. Try to develop your own style for the text writing.
  12. You should be should beware of storing your document in any portal that is used as free software checker for any language.
  13. Try to read as much scientific literature as possible, especially in your own research field area.
  14. Don't forget to cite your Sources: Identify what is needed and what is not needed to be cited. If you refer to any material, including images and data, you should be clear and define the source. Because images are treated as data in the case of citation, you should refer to any taken image and cite it in the references whether it has been copied from the social media image or a research article. By the way, please do not forget that "A picture is worth a thousand words"!
  15. A reminder for all respected researchers: In order to maintain research integrity, plagiarism (الاستلال) has to be given up. However, many people do not know whether they are committing plagiarism intentionally or unintentionally. How we can be more concerned about this issue?
Now, I think that the above-mentioned rules are helping in setting boundaries to avoid plagiarism in general, and self-plagiarism in special.
Finally, believe me, or not: If you make one plagiarizing, you may solve one problem and fall into many others where some of which may be described as a knockout. Again and again, please always remember that if there were accusations of plagiarism, it is not well for any researcher's reputation, in any meaning.

I am looking for a software (preferentially free) for simulating SAED patterns of different crystal structures at different zone axes. Do you know any software that has all the features and the crystal structure database?
Relevant answer
Answer
What you are looking for is probably a multislice simulation code. There's plenty of them out there, all with their individual strengths and weaknesses, but based on the same principle. Most of them are open source I believe. Packages you could check out for example:
You'd have to have a look at the documentations to check out all available simulation modes and extra capabilities of these codes. I reckon they can all do what you want. I personally use MULTEM for my simulations, but the choice is yours.
Most of those packages come with some sort of interface to crystallographic files (cif) or some other form of building crystal structures internally, but generally building atomic structures is a bit of a separate problem. I believe abTEM has quite a bit of stuff in that regard though. For Multem I have a little repository to assist with the specimen creation as well (https://github.com/ThFriedrich/atomic_specimen_creation). Cif-files you can easily get from the COD (http://www.crystallography.net/cod/) or the Materials Project Database (https://materialsproject.org/)

I am a research assistant to a doctoral student and she has been asked that for her thesis she must include on a CD a document management system with all the documentation she used, so that the reviewers of the work can quickly search through the documents, filter, search by keywords or between texts, etc....
I have searched and find that there are several such systems:
- OpenDocMan
- Seeddms
- I, Librarian
- OpenKm
- LogicalDOC
- Kimios
- others...
Several of them are web based and would be ideal as they offer the functionality we are looking for, but they are free as long as you are the one setting up a server. Others work as windows software but are not packable on their own to store on a CD. On the other hand I have not found options for free hosting even if it is low capacity and it does not make sense to pay indefinitely for such a system for a thesis work. *Excel is not an option for her unfortunately*.
I would like to know what system you know of that I could set up to search through documents and all this, so that I could save the whole system along with the documents on a CD, or it could be a Web solution but that I could have free hosting.
Thank you.

Usually a PhD can be submitted on Word or as a pdf. Everyone can access and search these on just a normal computer. No management system required

Shahin Behdarvand , in my case I simply love MatLab. I have been using R, Python, Eviews, Stata and MatLab for the last 15 years, and I could say that when one wants to estimate somebody else models, R, Python, Eviews, Stata come handy; but in my case when I want to build and estimate my own models (this is, models that I create myself), MatLab is my tool of choice. MatLab is losing popularity in econometrics, and because it is not open as R or Python, most data science laboratories and statistical units that used to apply MatLab are migrating to open tools. Stata keeps being popular despite the fact that you have to pay for use it; Stata has improved a lot true to be said.

Hello fellow researchers,
I recently started learning how to use SolTrace and have been struggling with exporting the heat flux data from SolTrace. I am aware that we are able to see the flux density under the "flux maps" tab. However, under the "Data" tab I only see columns of data for pos x,y,z and cos x,y,z, element, stage, and ray (a total of 9 columns) and no Flux density data.
I believe I am missing something here, maybe there is some calculations I need to do for these data to find the heat flux but I am not sure how to move from there. I would appreciate it if I can get some guidance on how to export or calculate the heat flux values from SolTrace.
Thank you for your attention!

A hologram is made by superimposing a second wavefront (normally called the reference beam) on the wavefront of interest, thereby generating an interference pattern that is recorded on a physical medium. When only the second wavefront illuminates the interference pattern, it is diffracted to recreate the original wavefront. Holograms can also be computer-generated by modeling the two wavefronts and adding them together digitally. The resulting digital image is then printed onto a suitable mask or film and illuminated by a suitable source to reconstruct the wavefront of interest.
Why can't the two-intensity combination algorithm be adapted like MATLAB software in Octave software and create an interference scheme?

The latest version of the CropSyst model (version 4.21.7.19) does not simulate crop growth in windows 7. I installed all of the additional software in the "installation" folder (which exists in the installed CropSyst folder). However, the software still immediately stops working when I want to run any scenarios.
Relevant answer
Answer
The latest version of the CropSyst model (Any version) does not simulate crop growth very well at alll. It does not use site specific ETcrop or direct soil moisture measurement. Consider calculating ETcrop for your growth simulations. Add a maturity model based on AGDD and you should have a far better system than CropSyst.

I have been trying to build a target analysis model using Glotaran software to analyze transient absorption traces. If the model is parallel or sequential, global analysis would be sufficient to analyze the results, however, if both parallel and sequential steps are required within the same model then target analysis is what should be used and it can be constructed using what is termed as KMatrix.
My problem is that I couldnt find any good documentation or examples on constructing the Target analysis model or the KMatrix, even it is not well documented in their paper (RG link is attached)
I would appreciate any help or explanation on how to build the KMatrix for target analysis
Thanks in advance
Relevant answer
Answer
Not sure if you've resolved this by now, but for anyone interested I can try to explain what I know. It gets a little confusing because the matrix labels are numeric - so let's instead think of the rows and columns as species A, B, and C. The numbers you populate the matrix with are ordinal - effectively saying 'refer to the k value (/reciprocal of the time constant) in position 1 (or 2, or 3, etc.) below'.
In the matrix shown below, then, it is saying that Species A (col 1) is turning into Species C (row 3) with a k value of 1. Also Species B (col 2) is turning into Species C (row 3) with a k value of 1 as well. If you give a k value for the same Species (e.g. col 1, row 1) then that value is associated with the species decaying.
So for example, based on the first column, one aspect of my model is that Species A either decays (k value = 0.003) or turns into Species C (k value = 1).
The other thing you would need as a minimum amount of information for the k matrix (I think) is the J-vector (middle right), which is referring to the initial occupancy after the IRF. So in this example, Species A and B are populated by the laser pulse, but not C. (I think it may have been more correct to use 0.5 and 0.5, i.e. start by assuming the laser is equally occupying A and B.)
Hope that helps! Let me know if something wasn't clear or if you have any questions.

lt should be low-cost or open-source so it is available to everyone and anyone can learn easily.
Relevant answer
Answer
A superb low-cost learning option is one that my Professor used for our entire course content in one of my Master's degree program. That is to have the students write their own code in teams and sections.
The KEY point is that NO software will help if the basic concepts, math, and understanding of reactions are not first known by the user! Simply plugging in numbers to get a result from someone else's work may be fine (but how to you check?) for commercial work, but if one wants to improve, adapt, or invent a process, it all starts from the individual's knowledge and competence. THEN, some software may help to speed up the process of calculation. BUT, if anyone uses it as a crutch to create a 'solution' without knowing how it got there, it will only promote "Illusions of Competence" in the individual, and possible serious problems in a real project.
With that caveat, here are a couple of sources of potential software:
Don't confuse reactor design with Process Simulation, which is done well by some other companies, but does not address the design stage.

Answer
Hi, together with colleagues and students we have made an open source algorithm to design elastic gridshells with grasshopper. The Hippo House is a non-elastic gridsheel, but you can still use it to find its shape. The algorithm makes it possible to draw a Chebyshev network on a surface and calculate its shape under its own weight and bending (to be unactivated in the case of a non-elastic gridshell). This last step can also be done with Kangaroo (but with less detail). Algorithm link: https://www.construire-l-architecture.com/07-elastica Link to the paper explaining how it works: Hope that helps

Origin software is widely available to find out FWHM of a XRD-peak. Can you suggest any freeware (opensource) software by which FWHM can be determined easily?
Thank you in advance for your valuable suggestion.
Relevant answer
Answer
Origin is always mentioned for this purpose. However, I find that the software, Fityk, is superior to Origin in the peak fitting department. I have provided the download link and an introduction video as well.
I find this software easier to use due to the flexibility, peak fit editing, and lite GUI as compared to the clunky peak fitting interface of Origin. The major plus is that you can place the peaks, run the fit, edit, and export all independently, where in Origin you don't get to do that as freely.
Good luck and cheers!

With such types of analysis procedures, you can load your assembly with both mechanical and thermal loading utilizing form various Abaqus options (load, boundary, or interaction). it should be noted that for such analysis methods, element degree of freedom must be selected appropriately (thermal and mechanical DOFs) to solve such conditions, regardless of element shape and meshing strategies.

Dear all
My major is based on the experimental. I rare often go to get help from software.
I am looking for the software to simulate the possibility of chemical reaction between POLYMERS. The reaction was not reported yet in any paper. I tried to find somehow similar reaction between two polymers with similar functional groups. But, not successful. I tried to use MD simulation, but interaction parameters are completely unknown. Again, I tried to use the interaction parameters between two similar MOLECULES (and not polymers).
I am wondering if there any software to simulate the reaction properties including the possibility of the formation of the chemical bond, decomposition of the bond, equilibrium constant, the heat of reaction, is it equilibrium one or not, how the Temperature, pH, ionic strength, time …. Affect the reaction.
I don’t mind if the results come with some error since my synthesized polymer and my reaction not reported at all, although basically, it is very simple for the reaction between two functional groups. It is the reaction of –COOH with an amine (but both of them are a polymer).
It would be nice if I can design my polymers only with the 3-4 monomer (oligomer) and then try to see the results.
I don’t mind, I pay for software. The high cost is also OK. But, I am a Chemical Engineer, and my knowledge about chemistry is poor. I can get professional chemistry help.
