Allrite's Science & Mathematics
In this expanding section, I want to share some of the knowledge gained over my years of studying science and mathematics.
The three current offerings are based on assessments submitted for my university studies and assume a strong mathematical background. I hope to add some simplified fare in future as well as some interactive Java components.
The Structure of White Dwarfs and Neutron Stars - Stars at the end of their lives offer an fascinating view of the boundaries between quantum and classical physics on a grand scale.
Strange Attractors are fractals that map the paths of chaotic systems. They can also generated by contractive maps and probabilistic techniques.
The simplification of a mathematical model of the Grooving of a Bicrystal by Surface Diffusion was my Masters project. Using Lie symmetry techniques, an attempt was made to simplify a fourth order ODE.
Young people interested in joining a science club should take a look at my Double Helix NSW site.
Finally, What is Science to Me? sums up some of my feelings about scientific endeavour.
