Send me some samples of your work and I will let you know. And you know what I want.

Quantph is the real scientist.

I have a Master of Science in engineering, not sure if that counts. Do 20+ year old credentials mean anything? What I do is like putting erector set pieces together. Actually more telling people that their ideas won't work, or that the ones that will work will cost more money than they have to spend.

Theoretical physics is fun, yes. However, if I had the choice of you, Quantph, or the professor from Gilligan's Island to choose from? I pick the engineer. Toot Toot!

How could you not choose the Professor? He made all these amazing contraptions while living on an island without any real tools, that guy was amazeballs! He was probably a professor in mechanical engineering...

In any event, I mostly do applied physics not theoretical physics, I like getting my hands dirty (so to speak-most of what I do involves cleanrooms). A lot of doing good scientific experiments involves doing good engineering.

January has been less than satisfying thus far. A dozen sessions and down about 55 BB, which is NBD but feels like much, much, more.

Some people don't count mathematicians as scientists, and I'm formally trained in one of the least "applied" of the mathematical fields (analytic number theory).

However, I was originally heading down the path of mathematical physics (coming out of a math+physics double major as an undergrad), and I have a lot of random experiences in science (astronomy, biology, ecology, plus some computer science, data science, and robotics/engineering) because I've been involved in various educational projects that have required me to learn those things. So I'm a mathematician that also pretends to science on the side.

According to canon, the Professor was a high-school science teacher and scoutmaster.

I think you would appreciate this:



Y'all made me realize that I don't even know what a scientist is.

Cool. Despite my lack of formal math study, I used to be really into studying theoretical concepts. I got about as far into the study as possible without knowing any calculus. That was a long time ago, but I still occasionally realize that when I look in the rear view mirror while driving, I'm looking into the past. Perhaps my favorite quirk that I stumbled upon in my search for information was the energy loan thing that determines radioactive decay rates(perhaps introduced by Pauli?). Now, whenever my pencil rolls off of the table, I curse at SCIENCE!!!!

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD

Recording for posterity because I "never" win these pots:

I raise a limper in MP with Ad Kc, 2 CC, then BB 3!, I 4! and call a cap and we are off to the races 5-ways with 24 sb in the pot thanks to the new drop.

I miss the Q-high, 2 club flop, but peel for one bet

Turn Ac and it checks to me we're down to three and an all-in by this point

You're someone who likes digging in to things. Kahn academy is an amazing resource. Don't know enough calc to learn stuff you want to know? No problem. Go through their math library until you get to the beginning of what you want to know. Maybe go back a step into algebra for a refresher, or even just take the first calc and see if there's something you need.

My father in law is also an electrical engineer. He's retired, but was interested. He said something along the lines of the Kahn calc classed being better than what he learned in college, and his attempt to refresh stuff he forgot becoming the chance to learn stuff he was never taught.

I suspect that the self paced part will be a huge plus for you, as well. Find something you want to know. Figure out the steps you need to go through to understand that. Do those steps. Profit in knowledge. A freaking piece of paper that claims you know stuff? That's so 80's.

Highly recommend YouTube channel 3Blue1Brown for excellent animated math vids. Essence of calculus, essence of linear algebra, neural networks, blockchain, and Taylor series are really good.
