Hello science fans. I haven’t posted here in years because I’ve left science via a process of punctuated equilibrium. For the story of how that happened, you can read about it at my new blog, where I’ll update people about my writing and the happenings in my life.
I am still in graduate school. I could have saved myself repeating the same conversation about 10^ℵ times by posting this last month. About three days before my proposed defense, my committee members raised some serious concerns about the mathematics in my thesis (aka dissertation). After my parents got on their plane to North Carolina I decided to postpone my defense until I could take a more disciplined, rigorous approach to deriving the dynamical equations. I have just not been careful over the past couple of years. In my haste to create something I have failed to create something beautiful, at the very least verifiable. So I am taking another shot at it and hope to be done by the end of the summer. More about mathematical aesthetics coming soon!
