Links and other things
Links, helpful items, and some information about me.
Getting stuff done
- SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics )
- Math arxiv.
- I am a member of the Center for High Performance Computing Education and Research here at the Academy.
- How to use google effectively. A very nice description of adding descriptors to your google searches to be more effective.
- I use homebrew for my Mac machines. You can use that to install important software for writing code such as GDB and modern compilers.
- An SSH Client for Windows: ( SSH Secure Shell Client 3.2.9). In case you've never heard of SSH, this is one way to securely transfer files between two computers that have SSH access.
- An SSH Client for Mac OS X that provides a nice little GUI: ( CyberDuck ).
- First annual Algorithm and Model Verification and Validation for Kinetic Plasma Simulation Codes
- The brand new Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering department at Michigan State University.
- Information for the Advanced Research Computing Support (ARCS) as well as the Center for High Performance Computing Education and Research here at the Naval Academy.
- Non-mission wireless access.
- Gift of travel form from the JAG office.
Information about LaTeX
LaTeX is a typesetting language used to create modular documents that makes very pretty equations. They have a nice community of very helpful people if you run into questions about what they do.
- Linux. If you're running a debian linux distro, such as ubuntu, or linux mint, it's very easy to get latex up and running. Simply install tex-live from the package repositories.
- Windows. Download and install MikTeX. Then you'll need a text editor to write all your stuff. My favorite used to be TeXnicCenter, but I currently believe that TeXmaker is much cleaner for Windows platforms.
- Macintosh. TeXShop simply rocks. You'll still need to install the back end stuff, which is included in MacTeX.
