## Scholarships & Resources

This page provides resources for students who are learning physics. There are many extremely good resources on the web, and we have provided links to them. In addition, The Nucleus has a database of digital resources. This database can be searched by keyword as well as educational level. If you would like to suggest links or resources, please contact us.

### Scholarship Opportunities

### Useful Sites

**Wikipedia**

A free, collaboratively edited, and multilingual Internet encyclopedia supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation.

**Wolfram Alpha**

A fundamentally new way to get knowledge and answers - not by searching the web, but by doing dynamic computations based on a vast collection of built-in data, algorithms, and methods

**Wolfram Mathworld**

The web's most extensive mathematical resource, provided as a free service to the world's mathematics and internet communities as part of a commitment to education and educational outreach by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica.

**Hyperphysics**

An educational resource about physics topics. The information architecture of the website is based on trees that organize topics from general to specific.

### Featured Simulation Package

**Modeling Wealth Inequality**

An econophysics package that the models the transfer of wealth between buyers and sellers, known as agents, who spend their time exchanging goods at a yard sale. In this economic model, two agents A and B are chosen at random and goods are exchanged. In each transaction an agent can either pay too much or get a bargain so that one agent becomes slightly richer while the other agent becomes poorer. What happens to the wealth of agent wA if this process is repeated many times and if we assume that the agent receiving the bargain is chosen at random so that sometimes agent A gains and sometimes agent A looses in the transaction. In other words, neither agent is always shrewd or always gullible so that all agents have an equal chance of getting rich. Does this model produce an equitable distribution of wealth?

This package is available online and as a downloadable ePub.
