General Relativity (GR) In class we’re covering Newtonian curved spacetime. I spent Monday on the homework and we have an exam next Monday so that’s what I will be studying for the rest of the week...

General Relativity (GR) Moving from special relativity to general relativity this week. The homework was pretty long so I spent two days on that. HLLC Riemann Solvers I’m about half done writing a...

Overview This is a step through of the particular HLLC Riemann solver I’m going to add to my hydro-sandbox code. It will serve as a base and teaching tool for my future implementation of an HLLD M...

General Relativity (GR) Still working on special relativity this week. Spent most of Monday and Tuesday morning on homework. We did derive the relativistic rocket equation and that was fun. HLL Fa...

General Relativity (GR) Started seriously on special relativity this week. Spent most of Monday on homework along with parts of Wednesday. Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) Spent all of Tuesday and most ...

General Relativity (GR) We’re a few weeks into GR now. Working on non-Euclidean geometry and starting Special Relativity. I spent Monday, Tuesday, and Friday afternoon on homework and reading for ...

General Relativity (GR) This week my GR class started so I spent some time prepping for that. Seems like a solid class, not much to report so far. Website I spent several days this week fixing up...

Overview This is my first post so I’m going to summarize what I’ve done this year and what my plans are for the near future. I spent the spring semester mostly taking taking classes. When I had t...
