At the moment, I am no longer a student. I do have a MS (2014) in Mechanical Engineering (Control Systems), a BS (2011) in Mathematics, and a BS (2011) in Finance. I am interested in PDEs, ODEs, Complex Analysis, Control Theory, Probability, Kalman Filtering, and Compressed Sensing.

I am waiting to hear back from some universities about my application for a PhD in EE, or if I can find a job that pays well, I might decide to that instead.

Currently, I am reading Candide by Voltaire. In Mathematics, I am reading Complex Analysis by Ahlfors and refreshing myself with Abstract Algebra and Real Analysis by re-reading Dummit and Foote and Rudin, respectively. Afterwords, I will probably read Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawerence, a different Complex Analysis book, and a book on Measure Theory.

comment Does vim support unicode?
@thefourtheye maybe your gvim needs to be re-installed. It doesn't seem to be a problem with Vim just Gvim.

comment I have installed linux version of MATLAB but being new I have no idea how to run it. There is no exec file as in windows
Installing the Linux version is different then Windows or Mac OS near the end of the install at the top of the screen it will have a box to check for simulinks. Did you check the box? If not I recommend re-installing.
