… Ludicrous cosmic coffee today [astrophy seminar]///
I need to step up both my Field Theory AND GR game…
Stuff for tonight? GR!!!!!
I think I have Fall and Summer schedules worked out?
Summer – Adv Lab II and Hilbert Spaces [pass/fail] + research
Fall – QM I [Sakurai], CM I [Golstein], QFT [Cvitanovic] + Fluff course + research
[note that I could call “research” my fluff course…but that’d be lame.]
Read Cloudy’s manual, partition TLUSTY?
Update: 1 hour of Cloudy reading, planetary nebula compiled! Best line: “Cloudy is designed to be autonomous and self aware.” …huh.
Collect IR divergences / color factors and send an update to Kidonakis.
Soft Matter – Read Colloid Paper -1 hour in, half done on first read!
Gravity -Finish HW 😦 Do 3.4, 3.7, 3.9, 3.10, 3.12 Read Carroll -finished half a problem? – 1 hour 😦
Senior Seminar – Review presentation.
Stat Mech – Do HW, Read.
Quantum II: HW
Quantum Simulations Paper ;-;
Electrodynamics: Read Chapter 9 in full. HW: do 10.20
…tutored ~15 minutes…I’m still shocked that people can get into calculus without understanding function composition
Okay, I’m going to try and compile a reading list…this is not my to-do list exactly, this will probably be edited into a page and the to-do list in a post that will follow.
This is going to start as a mostly unordered list.
- Finish Kittel & Kroemer
- Finish Griffiths E&M
- Re-read Griffiths Particle
- Re-read Chs 1-5 Griffiths QM
- Read Dirac’s QM*
- Read Peskin & Schroeder*
- Re-read Ryder’s QFT
- Read Sakurai*
- Read Feynman lectures*
- Read Frankel OR Nakahara
- Read MTW
- Re-read Taylor & Wheeler
- Read Predrag’s QFT notes
- Read Goldstein
- Read/listen Coleman’s QFT
- Jackson or Zangwill?
That’s the list for now.
