Drexel Linux Wiki

The Liki is Wiki started by Tim Jones and administered by him, Travis Hoppe, and myself to primarily address the Linux computing questions of the Drexel Physics Department. The articles range from program troubleshooting to using make or even LaTeX.

Nonlinear Dynamics at Drexel

Lagrange is the Drexel NLD website, started by Tim Jones but currently maintained (and styled) by myself. It features many explanatory articles on NLD as well as many exploratory animations.

One of my contributions is an interactive animation of Zeeman's Catastrophe Machine, now in HTML 5. See the original in Flash at the Drexel NLD page.

Here is a java applet implementing Arnold's Cat Map.

Here is an HTML 5 canvas demonstrating a 2D Normal Mode Decomposition. It's linear dynamics, but still interesting.

Physics Department Webpage

I have restructured and currently maintain the Physics Department Webpage.

Drexel Low-Temperature Physics Lab

The Low-Temp Lab webpage was a collaboration between myself and Tim Jones. Tim designed the layout which I brought to life.

Teaching

The Cool Physics Group

I am a co-founder of the CPG, which is a regularly meeting group of students who want to learn more about cool physics and the mathematics behind it from other students. Topics that have been discussed include General Relativity, Differential Manifolds, Lie Groups, Spinors, and Clifford Algebras.

A schedule of events can be found at Vish's website

Downloads

Metapost to PS

mp2ps is a bash script for converting metapost files to postscript. It does this by running the MP file through TeX and then creating PS output. This also allows imbedded TeX to show up correctly when viewing the DVI output of a TeX file that includes the PS versions of the MP files.

The script has been updated to halt on metapost errors which it will send to the terminal.

Drexel Thesis Template

This project has been taken over by Trevor King. See the files here or the detailed description at the Liki page.
