LAWS1010 Torts

Torts is a first-year law course at the Uni­ver­sity of Sydney, and it’s the first course in which “real” law is stud­ied after Found­a­tions of Law. Torts is about civil wrongs that soci­ety recog­nises, where one per­son may bring an action against anoth­er. It encom­passes such things as tres­pass and neg­li­gence.

PHYS1902 Physics 1B

Phys­ics 1B is a first-year sci­ence course at the Uni­ver­sity of Sydney. For stu­dents in the Tal­en­ted Stu­dents Pro­gram (TSP), part of the prac­tic­al com­pon­ent of the course could be replaced by research pro­ject with research­ers at the School of Phys­ics. Togeth­er with Barry and Grace, I did a pro­ject entitled “Hide and Seek: The Search for High Red­shift Galax­ies”.

Resource Type
TSP Report
The report on my sec­tion of the pro­ject, invest­ig­at­ing the prob­ab­il­ity of find­ing high red­shift galax­ies when cer­tain para­met­ers were altered.

TSP Present­a­tion
The present­a­tion from every­one in the group that explains the concept of red­shift, char­ac­ter­ist­ics of high red­shift galax­ies, and para­met­ers that were invest­ig­ated.

TSP Water Project

Each year, the Fac­ulty of Sci­ence at the Uni­ver­sity of Sydney organ­ises a first-year pro­ject that brings all the schools in the fac­ulty under a com­mon theme. In 2004, the theme was “Water”, and as part of the Math­em­at­ics group, I invest­ig­ated fractals, in par­tic­u­lar, the cre­ation of snow­flakes.

Resource Type
Grow­ing Snow­flakes using Dif­fu­sion Lim­ited Aggreg­a­tion (DLA)
My indi­vidu­al present­a­tion that dis­cusses the pro­gram that I wrote to pro­duce snow­flakes using DLA, as well as empir­ic­al ana­lys­is on the snow­flakes pro­duced by the pro­gram.
Present­a­tion
Snow­flakes and Fractals
The group report on snow­flakes and fractals that dis­cusses the dif­fer­ent ways in which snow­flakes can be cre­ated, as well as math­em­at­ic­al the­ory under­pin­ning fractals.
