About The Author

Who I am

My name is Jonah Miller. I graduatedย summa cum laude from the University of Colorado at Boulder, with a bachelors degree in math and physics. I got my Ph.D. in numerical relativity at the Guelph-Waterloo Physics Institute and at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. My PhD advisor was Erik Schnetter. In addition to general knowledge about both fields I study, I have specialized knowledge and interest in differential geometry, general and special relativity, lasers, astrophysics, and high-performance computing. I’ve done research on ultrafast optics, Cartan’s Method of Moving Frames, and quantum gravity. I’m a Linux hobbyist, I like science fiction, and I write fiction for fun.

I started this blog because I want to share my love of physics and math with all of you.

  1. Jonah – Well done. I’d love to get your thoughts about how to get children interested in math and physics. What the progress of the curriculum should be. Any text or material recommendations, etc. Did you do mathcounts?

    1. Glad you like the blog, James! Sorry for the late response, I just moved to Canada, and almost all blogging stopped over the summer while I got everything sorted out.

  2. Shame on me for not having discovered this web log earlier, but this is remedied now via the RSS feed. I find the posts very interesting conceptually; thought-provoking primers to finding out more from the perspective of a “belated” computer science undergrad with physics and mathematics as two of my minor subjects. Keep up the good work and thank you!

  3. ‘ Physics ‘ – The word is made to be equivalent with something weird ,here in India [at-least] .But I should say the way you have approached it is just fabulous. I think I would be a regular visitor to your blog. Thank you for sharing ; both your time and your knowledge.

  4. Just found this blog and it feels like a special occasion as I discovered a unique gift. Your analogies are succinct and grounded making them easily understandable. For the past year I have been reacquainting myself on the topic of physics and in particular Ensteinian physics during the hundred year anniversary. Thank you for sharing.

    An appreciative reader.

  5. hi Jonah I’m Muhammad from Egypt and I think I’ve a covariant Hamiltonian formulation of classical and quantum field theories. So how could I contact with you to discuss my idea? I use the Stress-Energy-momentum tensor as a Hamiltonian

What do you think?
