Code monkeying

Welcome to my INSANE cosmology package

FYI: Coding is like writing a diary.

Reading other people’s code is a dark and quirky mess.

Highlights: Cosmology
Small field models of the type we study yield the likeliest cosmological observables.

Small Field inflationary models - the case for Gravitational Wave generation

We numerically study scale dependence of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) power spectrum in a class of small, single-field models of inflation which lead to a high value of the tensor to scalar ratio.

A model of Black Holes as long strings - 'In disguise as no one knows'

An ongoing research into the nature of Black Hole interior dynamics. A conjecture as to the inner workings of Black holes as long strings, not unlike wrapped polymers, was suggested by Ramy Brustein and A.J.M. Medved (cf. arXiv:1607.03740 [astro-ph.CO] (2016)). In order to validate this picture we perform several computational tests.

My blog

Dedicated to fun.

While most of the time I am a mild mannered physicist, every so often I go into a telephone booth and don the cape of - SuperNerd!

This mostly happens while my code is in compilation, so this means that modern computing is putting a damper on my writing.

However, these are some of my musings when my brain is in idle….
