Yesterday, I had my students' seminar in statistical physics. Luck: I got the same smart students as last time. They did not apply for my seminars in Theoretical physics V on purpose, but it happened like that. So, I know the names of most of them. Unluck: I've got two girls in my group which always ask me too many questions and do not understand stuff.... But yesterday we had a quite easy topic: distributions and their applications, such that we did even the Taylor's expansion.... =) Next time - random walks, cumulative distributions etc and my favorite question "How many configurations are there for a given lattice, if we take n nodes, which can be connected in such a way....?" Our course includes also numerical results, namely simulations, of some small thermodynamical systems, as, for example, Monte Carlo for a given gas... However, I hope to manage these.
Otherwise.... Nothing special. I have written a funny programming code involving the binary numbers' sum to obtain the statistical results for our paper. Now, trying to describe this algorithm in a proper way. My boss says that the Pseudocode is not the best way to explain simulations in physics. Otherwise I have no idea how to "shortly explain" this algorithm.
Well, anyhow, this week-end I want to relax going to Neuchâtel where a nice rock concert takes place:
" Celui-ci sort le premier octobre 2010 en Allemagne (Suisse-Release 19.2.2010) et s'appelle logiquement:
Our Love Will Cut Through Everything."
Look forward to go to Switzerland again! :)))
Have a nice week-end!
