Stat Mech – Quiz Friday… Start studying Wednesday at latest, attended/ing class today…not paying much attention.

QM – HW due Thursday, do more today ><
Soft Matter – Re-read paper tomorrow, study glasses, and study Witten

Gravity – Catch up in general :( sadface.

Senior Seminar – Prep for talk, ha…haha, oh fuck this is Friday. Oh fuck, oh fuck….
Plasma Physics – Attend class and try not to sleep ><’ that is all. [look into old exams, later]

DO: Plan every god-darn day of April through the end of the conference.

note to self, this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=EKWGGDXe5MA

and review the HPS proposal:

https://www.jlab.org/exp_prog/PACpage/PAC37/proposals/Proposals/New%20Proposals/PR-11-006.pdf

Plan for the day:

10:45-11:45 Get temperature thing to work =.= …okay, that was fail. It’s printing some stuff ish?
12-12:30 meeting
12:30-1:00 GR -looked at basics of charged black holes.
1:30-3:00 GR, spent most of the time paying attention! Woo BH thermodynamics. HW soon ish ;-;
3:00-4:30 Plasma…let’s see if I can stay awake! Also, planning.
4:30-5:00 FCNC, work -did that, still not sure how I’m going to run things in batch…
5:00-5:30 Senior Seminar, Notes on the proposal , next up is notes on the history of dark matter.
5:30-6:00 Stat Mech, reading. Made some serious progress in reading, all things considered!
6:00-6:30 QM HW, searching and workin’ >< some progress? Founda  good site :S
6:30-7:00 FCNC, work
7:00-7:30 Soft Matter Presentation, reading and notes – didn’t do 😦
7:30-8:30 Greeeyyy Haaaaaat [1/2 senior seminar] Look at conference schedule and summer stuff?
8:30-9:00 FCNC
9:00-9:30 FCNC
9:30-10:00 Stat Mech, problems in the text [attempt them]
10:00-10:30 E&M Working through chapter
11:00-11:30 QM HW, work work work
11:30-12:00 Stat Meeeech, problems in the text? Reading?
12:00-12:30 E&M

I haaaaaaaaaaaaaate BaaaaaaaashI completely messed up my work time line by spending exorbitant amounts of time coding 😦 so sadface…

os.system is really, really cool in Python though.

Cloudy goals:

maybe take out cosmic rays?
abundances orion usually includes grains, but can’t change dust to gas easily.
tell no grains, then add them back
table 7.2 in Hazy part 1 has abundance data.
ISM grains…?
abundances ISM no grains
grains ISM graphite 9.0

hden? maybe do this dynamically
for a given density and temperature call cloudy, integrate up get rosseland mean opacity.

check to see if removing iterate to converge changes timing.

Rosseland mean opacity v. temperature for different dust to gas ratios
^ start with this
1, 5, 10 for dust to gas ratio.

run ISM and not ISM for integrated.

Remove iterate to convergence and check timing.
need lots of opacity files…

mess….
