It’s been a while. Plenty of work done, but much more left to do. I’ll get there.
Run of initial data in the potentials Jim gave me a while back aren’t looking good…the first one I tried had a memory problem, I’m going to go ahead and blame that on other people [who have their own machines] wasting cpu time on the machine that I use, primarily…which is kind of annoying (well, secondary machine ish? Primary machine is down with bad disks, RIP). The process was running in screen, so it shouldn’t have stopped unless the code crashed properly but the error code looks like memory failure. Sucks. Running another set (with fewer cores, so it’s taking forever…) of the same code with a different balance between the energy content of the bubble and it’s interface, but the total energy content of the space-time may be too great, we’ll see.
I’d like to have a code that takes a local min V and a local max V and spits out the correct parameters for such a potential. We’ll see about that later, though.
Read some intro material in particle physics as a refresher, felt good.
10 minutes reading arxiv titles, 20 minutes reading abstracts and taking notes.
In the end I worked maybe 6-7 hours on research and got about an hour and a half of exercise.
