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 how to get back to the terminal while busy
I don't want to suspend it. I did it earlier by putting the job running in the background but I now can't remember what it was.

Dan Hulme added that nothing else needs to be done. Do you know how I can open a file located in my documents folder in vim? Is is :e /Documents/filename?

comment How to install Texmaker 4.0.1 (released a few days ago)?
@nuttyaboutnatty what I did was sudo apt-get purge texmaker and then I did sudo dpkg -i (deb file name for texmaker). Everything works perfectly with not issues at all.
