Question
Dear all, I am trying to compute the Modified Weak Galerkin method for the Poisson Problem mentioned in the paper:
[1] A modified weak Galerkin finite element method. X. Wang, N.S. Malluwawadu, F. Gao, T.C. McMillan.
I am using FreeFEM++, but there are difficulties in applying the algorithm (3) mentioned in the paper above, where the jump function, the average function, and the weak gradient are not used or defined by anyone before in this program.
My question is, which software program should I use to compute this problem?
The modified weak Galerkin method does not require the penalty parameter by comparing with traditional DG methods.

Question
How can one incorporate software programming and coding in sign language?
Dear Geoffrey Khaminwa Mulama , I find this article very contributing one.
Advancing scientific discourse in American Sign Language
Deaf scientists who use American Sign Language (ASL) need to be able to communicate specialized concepts with ease. Because deaf individuals — here we use ‘deaf’ broadly to refer to the full kaleidoscope of deaf experiences — have historically been under-represented in science, the linguistic capabilities of ASL have yet to be fully explored for scientific discourse. As a consequence, deaf scientists may not have the necessary tools to effectively articulate their work. Nowadays, with improved educational opportunities and communication access, there are more deaf ASL users who are experts in scientific fields. Through their scientific work, these researchers finally have opportunities to expand ASL by incorporating new technical signs and experimenting with best practices for communication. In this Viewpoint, four deaf scientists — a quantum physicist, a marine ecologist, an immunologist and an organic chemist — discuss their experiences in developing scientific lexicons and the resulting shift in their science communication...

Question
Can we estimate the distance of animals from the deployed camera trap and their (animal) height from the camera trap images? I do not have reference pictures with measuring scale (Markers) while setting up the camera traps, nor the distance of forest trail/road is documented. Suggestions over image software programs or/and literature that has incorporated methods overcoming these issues are welcome.
Yes, few commonly used methods:
1. Known Object Size: If there is a known object of a fixed size in the camera trap image, such as a ruler or a reference object, you can use its size as a reference to estimate the distance of the animal. By comparing the known size of the object with its size in the image, you can calculate the animal's distance using principles of perspective and geometry.
2. Stereo Vision: Stereo vision involves using multiple cameras to capture images from slightly different perspectives. By analyzing the disparity between corresponding points in the two images, it is possible to calculate the depth information and estimate the distance of objects in the scene, including animals.
3. Photogrammetry: Photogrammetry is a technique that uses multiple images of the same object taken from different angles to reconstruct its 3D structure. By analyzing the parallax between different views of the animal in the camera trap images, you can obtain depth information and estimate the distance.
4. Machine Learning: With advancements in computer vision and machine learning, it is possible to train models to estimate the distance of animals directly from camera trap images. By training a model on a dataset containing images of animals at known distances, the model can learn to predict the distance based on visual cues in the images, such as size, perspective, and texture.
It's always recommended to combine multiple approaches and validate the results against ground truth data whenever possible.
Good luck

Question
A software design is a plan or a blueprint for building a software program. It is a high-level representation of the structure, behavior, and functionality of the software that guides the coding process. A software design typically includes a number of different components, such as:
1. Architecture: This describes the overall structure of the software, including how different components will interact with each other and how data will flow through the system.
2. Data structures: This describes the way that data will be organized and stored within the software, including databases, data models, and other data-related components.
3. Algorithms: This describes the specific methods and procedures that will be used to perform different tasks within the software, such as sorting data or searching for information.
4. User interface: This describes how users will interact with the software, including the layout of the user interface, the types of controls and widgets that will be used, and other details related to the user experience.
5. Functional requirements: This describes the specific features and functionality that the software will provide, including the different tasks that it will be able to perform and the types of data that it will be able to handle.
If a software design is not a program (and it isn’t), then what is it?
It is the interface.

Question
Hello
I am conducting a linear regression analysis for categorical variables using dummy coding in SPSS. I am then cross-checking the results in R. However, I have encountered a discrepancy where one of the dummy coding results is inconsistent with R, showing completely different outputs although the other dummy variables are consistent between the two software programs.
I am trying to identify the possible issues that could be causing this discrepancy, but I cannot able to find a solution thus far. Can someone help me with this problem?
No, Rana Hamza Shakil a three-category variable requires only two dummies -- just as a two-category variable requires only one dummy. The regression intercept will represent the score for the "omitted" category (i.e., 0 on all the other dummies) and each of the remaining dummies will give the difference between that variable and the omitted category.
Entering three dummies for a three-category variables calls for a degree of freedom that you don't have. Neither SPSS nor R can handle this, but I do not know how they report this error.

Question
I know ImageJ (Fiji) is a powerhouse of a software program, I was wondering are there any papers out there where they have used this in combination with aerial imagery or other photography to identify plant species?
I would like to take imagery of an environment and quantify % coverage of a grass species.
If it is only about the coverage of green it should be fairly easy. By splitting the RGB channels and quantify the area afer thresholding the green image.
If you have multispectral images it might be easier to differentiate different species.
If you have RGB images with different tones of green you might want to think about colour deconvoltion so seperate different tones.
If you share example images I would take the time to see if the problem could be solved in ImageJ/Fiji.
If you have hundreds of images to quantify you should skip ImageJ and try the CellProfiler.

Question
I need to use mathematical software program for mathematical modelling such as; modelling of dynamic systems etc.
Matlab works well for "engineering" types of problems. However, Matlab often requires a specialized add on "toolbox." The base price of Matlab is pretty expensive and the add on toolboxes are expensive.
For general purpose work, Wolfram Research Mathematica will address more general problems than Matlab in that it has the computational elements and symbolic manipulation support.
The upside of both Matlab and Mathematica is they both have very good debugger support built into the package. Both Matlab and Mathematica are "free format" programming languages. There is a Mathematica called MATLink that allows Matlab functions and functionality to be used within Mathematica. It provides the best of both worlds.
As others pointed out Python can be used. The downsides for me for Python is the lack of a high quality debugger as one has in both Matlab and Mathematica and it is a fixed format language. That is the column in which one starts a line is important. The formatting is quite rigid. For those of us that are old enough to remember the fixed format languages such as Fortran II and IV, the benefits of a free format language are obvious. For those that need to trace the values of a variable though a complex algorithm, a robust debugger is important. Unless a lot as changed the debugger in Python levels a lot to be desired. The biggest upside of Python is it is open source and "free."
A GNU open source Matlab equivalent is Cctave. It is designed to be a drop in replacement for Matlab. However, the editor is not as sophisticated nor as robust as Matlab and neither is the debugger. On the other hand you get 85% of the capability and it is free. Code developed in Octave will run in Matlab and visa versa.

Question
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the educational sector, resulting in a shift from face-to-face to a decentralized learning environment, creating a unique opportunity for network-based academic dishonesty. Prior research has shown that during the COVID-19 pandemic, students engaged in network-based academic dishonesty as a consequence of the breach of weak and legacy software programs that monitor network-based academic dishonesty.
Are the current mitigation techniques for preventing network-based academic dishonesty well-designed? What are your thoughts on the matter?
Students' formal certification and graduation in cases of utilizing online learning fraud are obvious economic and moral crimes. Countries' laws should be corrected to take into consideration of this upcoming global trend. Yet, it's a sort of a fraud utilizing cybercrime methods, leading to criminalization of the entire educational process. That should be suppressed by all possible, available technical means.

Question
I have 27 interviews for a psychology research paper with 4 people involved in the project and willing to code using Thematic Analysis. Is it better to use a software programme to do that or to just do it manually ? I would be grateful for anyone else's experience with these programmes. In particular the budget is small so expense may make a difference. Finally does it take long to work out how to use them? Those involved are clinicians and may not have done research in some time.
With 27 interviews, you are definitely in the range where using software will help you, especially when it comes time to search through your codes.
In terms of which software to use, all of the major programs can do thematic analysis equally well, including ATLAS.ti, Dedoose, MAXQDA, and NVivo. To make a choice, I recommend looking at their tutorial videos and choosing the one that gives you the best introduction for what you want to do.

SAP2000 has two types: Student version and professional version. The latter is better as it has considerable capacities and it is adaptable for the design and calculations of great structures.
Other software such as AutoCAD 3D, FLAC 3D, ANSYS, ABAQUS, HecRas and so on, can be used. It should be noted that any software has its peculiarities. The selection depends on what you want to achieve witch accuracy! Sometimes, you can use 2 software to compare the precision level of the results!

Question
Hello all,
Could you please recommend me optical modeling software programs for modeling absorption, transmission, and propagation of light?
Thank you.
The answer depends strongly on the structures you are interested in. If we talk about layer stacks where you can safely assume quasi-infinitness in the directions perpendicular to the stack direction I use CODE (https://wtheiss.com/wordpress/?cat=2 ). If you want freeware, RefFIT would be an alternative (https://reffit.ch/ ). Both can solve inverse problems. If the layers are structured and periodic, you could use numerical methods like Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) or Finite Element Method modelling (FEM) or Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA). It depends somewhat on your problem at hand, but I usually use FDTD for such problems, but they are limited to direct problems. Can you tell us the concrete problem you are trying to solve?

Good day
I have downloaded and tried some of the software programs, such as Nvivo, Dedoose, Maxqda and others and tried them out with the free trials. However, I find it very difficult to understand and use. The only real thing that I want to do is to analyse my qualitative interviews, which will eventually be about 20. Apart from "going to school" what are the most user friendly options for non-technical people like me? This is going to be a once in a lifetime exercise for my doctoral study and I will never use "coding" software again.

Hi Johann,
This must have been very frustrating for you. The best way will be to do manual coding. Take each transcript, read it slowly, sentence by sentence, and identify the main idea in each sentence. Assign labels to the ideas, these become your category labels. The bales can be taken from the text (Nvivo codes), or from previous research (theoretical code). For each paragraph, identify the core issue being talked about by the participant. Do this throughout the transcript. Read the transcript again, this time around try to see if some of the category labels can be grouped into a single main idea as a theme, based on the purpose of your research. Make short notes on the printed transcript reflecting on the participant's experience, meanings, interpretations, and questioning your own assumptions. If you are working on word documents, use the review and comment functions to make notes and reflective remarks along the way, as you code the transcripts. You may have to read and code one transcript several times. Keep all the codes (category and theme labels) you make and the page and line numbers of the text that these labels can be found in the transcript. Repeat these processes for each transcript. Collect all your labels and their indexing details. Work with the labels and be open to making changes by reorganizing, recategorizing, and renaming them as you immerse yourself in the data.
Manual coding may be slow, but it's the best way to code and analyze data. It gets you to read and understand each transcript or data material.
I hope this helps. Good luck with your analysis

Dear scholar Community,
Let peace up on you all scholars at all corners of the globe!
I submitted a paper of mine to one of the high ranking journals and the editor in chief sent me back the manuscript due to some similarities ocurred while preparing it, which he told me to rephrase those overlaps and resubmit it. For such cases, i have been using REF-N-WRITE Software before this time. However, this software was trial version which was not fully activated. Hence, currently, the software needs purchasing its full access which i can not afford it. So that, with this quiry writing i kindly seek for help?
1) If there is any means how to get the full version of my previos software that might be via cracking? Or If there is anyone who already purchased the softwares' full acces?
2) If there is any other software developed for this purpose?
Hint: most software programs that are freely accessible on the google are not efficient. Most of them are biased. They plagiarize even, a well writtten manusrcript!
I think this is not supported by the scientific community. Basically, the software might be used for language and grammatical correction but every part of your manuscript should not be copied from somewhere. Therefore, the best option that we have developed as an experience is that rephrase the sentences by yourself.

Question
In a 12-meter-long straight channel, a gate with a pneumatic jack has been employed at about a meter before the butterfly outlet gate (used for adjusting the water height) so that it would be used to generate positive surge. When the gate is closed suddenly (in about 0.2 second), it causes an increase in the flow depth and thus conversion of the flow from steady to unsteady, the fact which results in wave progress. I would like to know whether this type of positive surge resulting from sudden closure of the gate (whether with an approximately 2.5 cm opening, or with a complete closure) could be modeled in a straight channel using Flow3D? what software program may be used for its simulation?
Best regards,
Maryam Akbari
(I did not understand the setup, it would be nice if you show a schematic in a figure, I assume it is a free surface flow with a gate and a wave generator and one end)
Surge* governing equations (water hammer equations) are special form of full 3D Navier-Stokes. They have the exact structure of 2D Saint Venant (SWE) and 2D Euler equations mathematically. Back to your question, yes you can model it with Flow3D, model 3D N-S equation with moving object module as a boundary and you wold capture the wave due to closure of the gate. If your problem is symmetric in the transverse direction you may solve it with 2D layered averaged N-S solver of Flow3D as well.
PS:
* Surge in the literature of pump and pipeline means "water hammer", it is not the "storm surge" in the literature of coastal engineering

Do you see this potential in all areas of school K-20? Or do you see it limited to particular slices?
So glad that what I wrote seems to have made sense to you. I see we are somewhat at similar lines. I do not yet think we have seen any final outcome of the use of digital ICTs. The next big, and somewhat quite disruptive thing I expect is development in the direction of learning analytics and adaptive learning. This will begin to respect that learners need different time and other different resources and relations to learn. Instead of time being the constant and learning variable, learning can be constant and time variable. But this destroys school scheduling and organisation and calls for reconstruction of social learning structures in organised education.
I leave a couple of attachments here to papers on RG, by Floridi, that I think you will like, related to my previous post - and a conference presentation of mine.
You write about constructivism - but I wonder if you are in your thinking closer to constructionism. Papert was a friend of Piaget (constructivist) but became in the end a constructionist. A lot of difference here. Floridi sees it as the difference between knowledge of the user and knowledge of the maker, and blames the knowledge of the user, knowledge as a spectator sport, on Plato. Floridi sees it as a historic mistake - it is the maker of artefacts (which Plato despised) who has deeper knowledge - he or she knows how it works, can take the artefact apart, explain and put it together again. Think of the difference between a car user and a car mechanic. Artefacts can also be non-physical of course. See attached paper ”What the makers knowledge could be”, and ”In defence of constructionism”. I will also send you on RG mail a short text behind a paywall.
However, if you are doing a dissertation under surveillance, deviations from the almost all-dominant constructivism dogma may not be problem-free. Just a heads-up...

Question
We have performed Clariom-S microarray-based transcriptome and TMT-MS based proteomics analysis on healthy and patient samples.
Our idea was to study the correlation between gene- and protein expression between healthy and patient samples, for which we have calculated an overall mean Spearman coefficient for all the genes- vs proteins-expression correlation. More specifically, I have identified 8000 genes common in both gene and protein study, and calculated mean correlation coefficient. I obtained a Spearman coefficient value of 0.58 for this dataset.
Further, what we are interested in doing is: calculating pair-wise Correlation between mRNA and protein expression of all 8000 individual gene-protein pairs so as to create figures (as shown in Fig. 2a in Paper -2 and Fig. 3a in Paper1 attached here).
I was wondering if you could provide any insights into how to perform such an analysis. To my knowledge, most researchers use program ‘R’ to find such gene-wise correlation. Unfortunately, I have no experience with using this program. Is there any software/program that I can use for this.
I would much appreciate any help/advice.
Thank you!!!
R will provide all that you need. There are several ways to do this. For example, you can run a for loop to perform the 8000 wilcox.test() calls. It might be helpful for you to look at Microarray analysis teaching materials (for R), because this type of task is common in that field. For starters (R in general), use Google or have a look at https://www.researchgate.net/project/Teaching-R

Hello,
The lack of standardized and validated programming assessment instruments, make it difficult to evaluate programming interventions (1). Also, statistical effect size calculator is affected as the combination of results is influenced by the heterogeneous measurements adopted (2).
My main objective is to create a collaborative list of instruments which can be used to measure different variables relevant in the programming learning context, such as motivation, learning, self-efficacy and others.
I ask for the help of my peers in this mission. Thanks.

I'm looking for software or program suggestions that can be used to carry out data mining and artificial neural network with less programming input.
From the previous answers, matlab and WEKA have been refered as the most easy-to-use toolkits for new users, however, once if you want to do a little more complex AI related task, they will be not the most suitable candicates. Here, I think keras may be a more suitable ANN framework for new users, keras is a high-level toolkit with the backends of Tensorflow, CNTK or theano, which means that your can both relaise your idea by using a little codes with highly packaged interfaces , and take the advantages of GPU parallel computing and highly optimized instruction. Further, keras uses python, an easy-to-learn language to program.

Question
1. What are the benefits of the current slope stability software programs, to solve the problems? what are the shortages of these software programs?
2. Why we need this review ; why we still need to new methods on slope stability? what are the limitations of current methods especially limit equilibrium method ?
3. what are the  Limitations of Limit Equilibrium Methods; how can we find new methods; what should we do in the future?
Dear Muhammed,
Slope stability consists of numerous methodologies including Limit Equilibrium Method (LEM), Finite Element Method (FEM), Boundary Element Method (BEM), Rigid Element Method (REM), Limit Analysis Method (LAM), Discrete Element Method (DEM) as well as hyprid methodologies such as Finite-Discrete Element Method (FDEM) and many others that I may have forgot to mention.
These methodologies have all some advantages and disadvantages over one another. Infact hyprid theories have been continuously developed to overcome these facts. Many software packages have been written over the years but almost all of them have some limitations in every methodologies they represent, because developers need to simplfy the complex algortihms as much as possible to decrease mainly the time consumption of the development. Also please bear in mind that they are generally written commercially.
As I mentioned every theory have some limitations, considering LEM cannot represent the post failure situation of an instability nor the mechanism. Also, It ignores the deformation characteristics of the materials and many assumptions need to be made such as inter-slice force fucntions to represent the magnitude of forces between each slice.
Additionally, you need to have decent understanding of each theories to be able to develop a new method, which I honestly think that there is no need at this time since many analytical solutions are already present.

I'm currently undertaking research leading to the implementation of a digital/ software program to help promoting contextual vocabulary as well as reading comprehension skills. That's why, I would like to know more of your ideas, suggestions and thoughts about the topic.
I think that the best way to improve the usage of those resources is trying to create some kind of competition-related prizes (eg: badges, medals). If you perceive that your class is competitive you can decide about scores between grades (some of them are not so competitive and play only by scores could not be interesting).
The aim is to identify where lies the trade-off between challenge and stimulation to avoid that their willingness to participate fell down.

Question
Why do most existing finite element software programs (e.g., SAP2000, OpenSEES) require displacement rather than acceleration time histories as input motions when performing multiple-support excitation analysis?
it is usual to use the earthquake ground acceleration record to calculate
time histories of the effective inertia forces on the structure. The analysis is
then carried out for these forces. In this type of analysis the displacements
at the support points are zero, and hence the calculated displacements,
velocities and accelerations at the nodes are relative to the ground. To get
the absolute accelerations at any node (which are needed to calculate the
“floor” response spectrum), the ground accelerations must be added to the
calculated relative accelerations.
For linear structural analysis with multi-support excitation, it is usual to use
a similar analysis method. In this method the ground accelerations at the
support points are used to calculate effective inertia forces, and an analysis
is carried out for these forces. This analysis assumes fixed supports, so the
displacements at the support points are zero. This is not correct, since
different supports can have different displacements, and hence the support points can displace relative to each other. This effect is accounted for by a
second analysis in which the relative support displacements are considered.
The results of the two analyses are added together. This approach can be
used for linear time history analysis and also for response spectrum
analysis.

Question
Hello all. I am a synthetic inorganic chemist who worked on gold clusters for application in heterogeneous catalysis during my PhD few years ago. Now I am trying to learn some computational calculations (I am a beginner) to gain insight and (as complementary knowledge) about catalytic reactions using metal clusters. Here is the case: I made Ru3(CO)12 and deposited on TiO2 nanoparticles (30 nm) for photoreduction of CO2. There is some evidence from XAFS data that there is a significant population of Ru3 on TiO2 (and of course aggregated, larger ones). I have been reading about DFT, Ab Initio, semi-empirical methods but some are hard to grasp by a synthetic chemist like me. What I want to do is to calculate the interaction of CO2 with Ru3 clusters on TiO2 like the binding energy of CO2 on Ru3 clusters, adsorption/desorption and dissociation of CO2 on Ru3 clusters. My questions are:
1) what kind of quantum mechanical calculations is more accurate or preferred (faster with some approximations)? Is it DFT or Ab initio or Molecular Mechanics/Dynamics or Quantum Monte Carlo or semi-empirical or some other methods?
2) is there free software/program to perform such calculations. I know Quantum Espresso, Orca, GAMESS, VASP are free-of-charge. What about free DFT software/program packages? Are there any?
3) is it possible to do with a normal laptop at home (without super large memory and disk from computational facilities at institution/university/research centre?
I talked to some computational chemists and they told me even for such a small system, it takes ages to perform such calculations - they also advice me that I could do another PhD for computational calculations because it takes years to learn. :-) First, DFT scales with N^3 (or N^4?) as the number of atoms increase. Plus, interaction of CO2 with Ru3 clusters is not quite ideal because my catalyst is Ru3/TiO2. CO2 might adsorb on Ru3, or at the interface between Ru3 and TiO2, or at TiO2 but dissociate at Ru3 clusters. And finally they told me that normal laptops don't work no matter how expensive the laptop is i.e. great memory and disk. Eventually I need a desktop connected to computational facilities at a university/institution/research center.
Any advice where should I start?
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The saddest part in Malaysia is that we don't have a supercomputer. Even if we have one, definitely I don't have an access to it.
So, the take home message is that I cannot do anything with a normal laptop at home. How about Molecular Dynamics or Molecular Mechanics. Do I still need to be connected to computational facilities?

Is Matlab a high level programming language or software? When I googled, I could different answers. Please suggest with explanation.
I would say it is both a software (a computing environment) and a high-level proprietary programming language. Typical use of the MATLAB application is based on the MATLAB scripting language. On the other hand, MATLAB can call functions and subroutines written in other programming languages such as C or Fortran, which highlights its nature as a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment.

Prior to the actual training of movement in rehabilitation with a medical device, it is often necessary to introduce the exercise and the way the device and/or the training software (program) works, and how the feedback and the movement are tied together. But how can you define the threshold for: the patient has understood the task and is now ready to proceed to the actual training (with less or no assistance). What are feasable markers or parameters (e.g., time to achieve a goal, number of successful repetitions, etc.)? And how can you best show and teach the exercise?
Correct Techniques, in line with gold standards. When people will be ready to control velocity, force and direction they are ready to come back to they life.
In order:
1) A bit of strength (Force impovement)
2) Movement velocity (total control)
3) Movement Directions (Be able to fully control the body segment)
In my view these are 3 important sign that the neuromuscular system is ready to come back to the normal life.
