Some interesting links, especially for myself!
- John E.J. Schmitz Blog by a chemist that wrote a book about the second law of TD.
- Peter Reimann: Brownian motors: noisy transport far from equilibrium, 2001 Must-read report reviewing all essential work on ratchets.
- Hmolpedia: Encyclopedia of Human Thermodynamics, Human Chemistry, and Human Physics Ok, only tangentially relevant, but such a nice website that I had to include a link somewhere ;-)
- Geller Labs DIY circuit for measuring Johnson noise.
- Robert Murray Smith Chemist that has a lot of videos showing you precisely how to make photoactive materials, graphene, batteries, etc.
- Nyle Steiner Mainly electronics related experiments, such as homemade tunnel diodes, memristors and lots of other components. Also has links to more science projects websites at the bottom of his website.
- Laserhacker Interesting electronics stuff.
- Michael Marte: Models And Algorithms For School Timetabling - A Constraint Programming Approach, 5 July 2002
- Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling 2014 Proceedings Papers describing the state of the art in timetabling.
- The Design of Approximation Algorithms A whole book, written very recently in 2010 / 2011, about approximation algorithms and their design. Extremely useful and well-written as well. Scheduling is not investigated too much, mainly because scheduling can so far only be approximated in some very specific cases.
- DMOZ list of scheduling utilities
A couple of open source scheduling programs that include automatic scheduling:
- FET GPL licensed scheduling software for schools that claims to schedule anything within 6k teachers and 30k student groups within 20 minutes.
- UniTime GPL licensed scheduling software based on a Phd thesis that describes the constraint solver, which is supposedly very powerful.
- Tablix GPL licensed scheduling software using a genetic algorithm.
A couple of apparently better known commercial scheduling programs for schools that include automatic scheduling:
- ascTimeTables 400 euro and upwards. Only doing schedules for education. Looks quite modern.
- PrimeTable 250 euro per year and upwards. Only doing schedules for education. Works on phones/tablets (who would want that??).
- MIMOSA 500 euro and upwards for larger schools / add-ons, etc. Only doing scheduling for education.
- REDIKER unknown price, company focuses on school administration, should have good integration with their own products at least (?).
- UNTIS unknown price, only doing scheduling for education.
- EMS Campus unknown price, doing scheduling for all kinds of organization (not manufacturing though).
