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 Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut. 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 Candide by Voltaire, a different Complex Analysis book, and a book on Measure Theory.

Recently read:

1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell, Brave New World by Aldous Huxely

Will read:

Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H. Lawerence and Candide by Voltaire more to come latter.

comment Xubuntu how to check used and free disk space
thanks. Do you know how to change the size of the temp files? I have undev holding 7.8GB and using 4kb, tmpfs/tmp 7.8 and 20kb, tmpfs/run 3.2 and 836kb, none/run/shm 7.8 and 88k, and tmpfs/home/dustin 7.8 and 644k. I don't think I need all that space allocated that is being unused.
