I’ve done some assignments given by the summer school. I’m so looking forward to attending this school and learning a new topic: exoplanets. Now, I need to read some papers to understand some background knowledge of exoplanets and detecting methods. Actually, I have literally no idea what they are, since I’ve never learned exoplanet concerned…

I’ve been busy these days. I had many things to deal with immediately, mainly my immigration process. I think I can get a visa in Japan until mid-August. Also, I’ll go to some summer school next week, I need to prepare something. Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars During the period that I couldn’t post…

Well. I have studied just for 3 hours. I wasted my morning and early afternoon. Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars I’m still trying to improve the interpolation algorithm, but I couldn’t achieve it yet. The difference between my TOV solver and the RNS code should be less than 1 %. But I’m not sure anymore…

Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars I think I need to fix some problem in my TOV solver. Maybe it is caused by the interpolation algorithm. It’s not accurate. Study Astronomy & Astrophysics I have read the AAS Nova article. English I have read the 5 things on CNN. I have read the New York…

I installed the Interent at home, yay! Finally, I can stream at Japan. It’s been a long time since I streamed the ‘Study With Me’ video. I’m so happy to stream and study with you! But you might find that the format of the streaming is quite different from the previous one, since I cannot…

Network in Japan is quite slow. I am having a problem with uploading my ‘Daily Study Log’ and some solutions. It will take some time to construct a high-speed network in my room—now I’m using the Internet at the public library. I hope I can use the Internet in my house so that I can resume…

Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars Since the calculation is somewhat slow, I used parallel computing to reduce the calculation time. I think the whole process will be ended during the night, I hope. Also, I found that there’s a problem with my TOV solver. This is due to the interpolation when the code reads…

Hello, everyone! It’s been a long time since I wrote a post on the blog. I was pretty busy these days. I finished my master thesis and submitted it. I had to move out of the US after graduation, I had lots of things to do such as selling a car, canceling insurance, and surrendering…

Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars Still writing a thesis, I think I crossed a half line. Good for me! Study Astronomy & Astrophysics I have read the AAS Nova article. I have read two APS Physics articles. English I have read the three 5 things on CNN. I have read the front page of today’s…

Research Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars Luckily, the professor said he could be my thesis committee. Now the committee is composed, I arranged my defense time. Also, I have checked my result, and it looked fine so far. But I still need many things to test. Also, I need to write my thesis at the…
