Jonah’s Stuff

Here you’ll find links to my various accomplishments and fancies.

Academics

  • You can find my CV here.
  • You can find a copy of my undergraduate honors thesis in physics, for which I was awarded summa cum laude, here.
  • You can find a copy of my undergraduate honors thesis in math, for which I was awarded summa cum laude, here.  My advisor and I wrote a paper based on my research. You can find a preprint ” href=”http://arxiv.org/abs/1308.0288″>here.
  • I presented a poster on measuring the nonlinear optical properties of graphene. You can find it preserved for posterity here.

Fiction

My short story, Yuki Onna: Snow Woman, was published in this issue of One Title Magazine.

It seems that One Title went out of business. As such, the links above are currently dead. Here’s a copy of my story.

Software

I have a number of github repositories with (very small) software projects I’ve authored, and configuration files for Linux.

  • You can find the 4(5) Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integrator with adaptive step size I wrote here.
  • You can find a numerical solution to the (1+1)-dimensional wave equation using Runge-Kutta methods and the method of lines here.
  • I also used my Runge-Kutta integrator to numerically solve a variety of equations of state in the Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker universe. You can find my implementation here.
  • PyPartyManager is a small set of command-line utilities for making party management easier for the DM/storyteller in a tabletop game.
  • WallPy is a small script for rotating your desktop wallpaper regularly, without repeats in Linux.
  • You can find other random scripts I’ve written here.

  1. I loved how you so clearly explained the weird behavior of the Pythagorean theorem in Minkowski diagrams. I actually had an “aha” moment!

    1. Thanks for reading, Kevin! I’m glad you liked the article! If there’s something you’d like to read about, feel free to post a comment on the requests page or shoot me an email. The blog has been quiet for a while, but I’m still here…I just haven’t had as much time to devote to writing as I would like.
