Woke up

0,5 Hrs ST

0.5 Hrs Class Mech

1.5 hrs research

1 hr Class Mech

lots of travel time

1 hour science society 




DRIVING. 10pm – 10:30 am

10:30-11am shower

11am-12pm recovery and planning. Walk-in testing is doable, but expensive. Maybe? Maybe.

12-1 QM HW, problem 2 accounted for…problem 1 to be done later.

1-2 ST Research [quit at 55, nap now]

2-4:30 NAP ;-; whoooooops

4:30-5 recovery

5-7 Research and dinner

7:30-8 ST research

8-9 travel home @.@ and picking stuff up form physics buiding 

9-9:30 helping a friend


Woke up drove in 8-9 ish.

9-10 finished EM

10-12 studied field theory

12-2 Field theory exam

2-3 met grad students from NCSU

3-3:30 waste / checking on things

3:30-4 Fulbright

4-5 travel 

5-6 Club Math and looking at QM hw (15 minutes)

6-6:15-6:25 QM – travel

6:25 – 6:55 Class Mech HW writing into Latex.

6:55-7:20 lost + some food

+ 30 minutes on Fulbright 

lost time on planning Chicago trip…whoops!

9:30-10 Fulbright.

10-10:30 Daily Show + Class Mech 

10:30-11:30 Check work on HEP research…found an error! Better now than later. Soft anomalous dimension is calculated in full and (I think) fully simplified….unfortunately I lost my list of objectives! Whoops…tomorrow I’ll be checking the leading order that I got last time I did serious work. 

11:30-12 Fulbright finishing @.@ whew. -.- I left out the state on the address form welp that was fun.

2-3:30 ST research;

ScalColl took 1619m on Kerr in total
Running Ve006 now [but with 14 cores instead]
Kerr is good to go except for keyboard shortcuts :S

Diff the files on kerr and on feynman!

Plotted Jim’s potential vs. my own, it’s far more dynamic over the very short range around the edge of the bubble…but I assumed he’s using the same step profile…check that now.

eta = -2 phi0 is still good.

…now to look at Jim’s potential vs energy stored in the gradient of the wall.

His potential completely overwhelms his gradient…which is good. But it’s many orders of magnitude above the absolute numbers I was getting. I suppose his code actually scales though?

Want to start a batch TOMORROW that goes over a nice range of epsilon.

3:45-4:15 QM HW and Daily Show.


Woke up… early in the morning [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Uc3ZrmhDN4] …

Showered, ran, ate ~ 9:15

9:15-9:30 planning

9:30-11 E&M

11-12 QFT HW finishing

12-1:30 QFT

1:30-2 Eating / killed time.

2:00-3:00 Class Mech Hw

3-3:15 killed

3:15-4 Class Mech HW [half done?]

4-4:20 lost?????

4:20-4:50 Class Mech HW [bit more than half done]

+15 on Class Mech

+30 on Research, sorta

+30 min EM

+30 min EM

+15 Class Mech

+1.5 hrs dance 😀

~11 pm.

1:30, basically done with Class Mech…made some progress into EM. Have Problems: 1 & 3 “done” half of problem 2 and half of problem 4…nothing on problem 5. If I can get 1-4 done before sleeping that’d be great.

Break from EM onto research…




7 hours of sleep [ish] 

30 minutes of moving car…

9-10 am QM and hw.

10-10:30 eating and lost time

10:30-11:00 internship meeting

11-12 Class Mech

12 – 2 QM Hw

2-3 GT 1000 TL’n – On undergraduate research …forgot to mention computational skills, oops!

3:00-4:30 Colloquium -M. L. Hunt talked about granular media, sand in particular. Hour glasses have a [basically] constant flow rate…which is kind of cool.

Nima Science Museum has an awesome year-glass: http://www.connect-shimane.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Sand-Clock1.png …so cool.


Dunes boom and sing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FYG-C-IVOg

4:30-4:45 Planning

4:45-5:45 1 hour ST research – looked for AdS papers and read up on AdS in general…messy messy messy. Tabled up the papers I need to skim or read for real.

5:45-6 killed on transition

6-6:30 on eating, found free food.

6:30-7:30 QFT Hw

7:30-9:00 QFT Hw

9-9:45 Food and recovery

9:45-11:15 HEP Research – check notebook about how to do things / what was done. Got Born cross section [FINALLY]…so this is good.

+20 minutes on Class Mech HW [really on typing it up and finding it…not doing it]

+20 minutes on Class Mech HW
