Classes and Bugfixing 6

Astronomical Techniques More discussion of error propagation. Started planning class projects and discussed hypothesis testing. Numerical MHD Still working on bug hunting. I tested a bunch of diff...

Classes and Bugfixing 5

Astronomical Techniques We had an in depth study of bootstrap methods and implemented a simple one. Also, started discussing error types and propagation. Numerical MHD Still working on debugging m...

Classes and Bugfixing 4

Astronomical Techniques Homework 3 was due this week, we were studying the spread and biases of various location and dispersion estimators on Gaussian data and data with outliers. We also started t...

Classes and Bugfixing 3

Astronomical Techniques This week has mostly been a discussion of various statistics for finding distribution centers and spreads. Numerical MHD Finished debugging the HLLD solver. I didn’t find a...

Classes and Bugfixing 2

Astronomical Techniques Started discussing statistics (the things not the subject) and I fixed some issues with the homework from last week. Overall uneventful Numerical MHD More bug hunting this ...

Classes and Bugfixing

Astronomical Techniques We’ve been digging into the details of various common distributions and we had our second homework. The homework was our first really hands on time with Bayesian statistics...

MHD Simulation Bugfixing

Astronomical Techniques We’ve been digging into the Bayesian vs Frequentist interpretation of statistics and how to apply Bayes’ Theorem. We had our first homework and it went well, it was basic Mo...

CT and Classes

Astronomical Techniques A little more work in python and we started on the difference between the frequentist and Byesian interpretation of statistics. Dotfiles I fixed a race condition I acciden...

CT and First Committee Meeting

Astronomical Techniques I’m starting a new class this spring; Astronimcal Techniques taught by Prof. Newman. This week was an introduction to python. Committee Meeting I had my first committee m...

VL+CT Algorithm

Overview This is a step through of the VL+CT (Van Leer plus Constrained Transport) integrator I’m going to add to my hydro-sandbox code. The specific algorithm is from Stone & Gardiner 2009 wh...
