The last few weeks have been a blur of intensive project work. We’ve had two programming projects, one individual and one group.
Simulating Relativistic Decays
The first programming project was for the relativity module. We had to simulate the energy distribution of neutrinos from a set of particle decays. This individual project was an interesting test of applying what we had learnt in the module, combining programming skills and careful consideration of the scenario. Since the project was assessed automatically, this required a lot of scrutiny to the specifications given for variable names and the units values were presented in.
Statistical Application and Group Tensions
While the first project went quite smoothly for me, the second was rather bumpy.
