I’ve been brushing up my python code for the Circular Restricted 3 body problem.
Accidentally found my honours presentation slides, which I thought it was lost, in my old mail box, so I upload and share it here.
I would say that the honours year is tough. It is tough because not only you have to work hard on your research (and hope the things go smooth), but you also have to be able to finish your coursework in outstanding level. In my year, there were 15 Physics honours students (including me) (it is very unusual). I still remember how stressful it was in the first semester that I had struggled for a month to make the Chandra package work on the Linux system (the problem could not be solved and I had to run everything on my supervisor’s computer using ssh). But it is still one of the most joyful periods in my life.
