Notes

University Notes

These are some university-level notes that I write for my own entertainment (read: due to boredom). You may or may not find them useful.

GCSE Maths

I maintain some GCSE Maths notes here

Contact

If you spot a mistake here or want to have a chat, there are a few ways of getting in contact with me.

Bits and bobs

These are some \(\LaTeX\) tests from when I was setting up the site.

Gaussian integral

\[\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^{-\alpha x^2}\mathrm{d}x = \sqrt{\frac{\pi}{\alpha}}\]

Microcanonical ensemble

\[\Sigma (E,V,N) = \int_{\mathscr{H}(q, p) < E} \mathrm{d}^{3N} q\ \mathrm{d}^{3N} p \]

Here's a random piece of code…

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use('Agg')
import numpy as np
x = np.linspace(-5,5,1000)
z = np.exp(-x*x/2)
vals = np.random.randn(1000000)
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig=plt.figure(figsize=(7, 5))
plt.hist(vals, bins=500)
plt.plot(x, 8000*y, '--')
fig.tight_layout()
plt.savefig("images/random.png")
"images/random.png"

…which makes this random graph :)
