Say we are interested in solving an equation of the form

Yesterday, I went to Nancy, France for my CET (comité d’encadrement de thèse) evaluation on my doctoral research. It is no secret that I don’t have much idea why I am doing the peak-detection and spectral decomposition of an input IR spectral data; it was just something I was doing simply because I could do it and the supervisor told me to do so. Now, after some feedbacks from my two CET members; I have a little more idea on why spectrometrists are interested in the spectral decomposition of the signals they get from their samples. At least it felt a bit better knowing that the work I was doing for the past few months are not entirely for null, despite the doubt I have about the entire field.
Some verbs and its conjugations
I learned some new Serbian verbs today. To list a few, I learned
From what I learned today, the gender rules in Serbian seems quite regular. The rule is:
- masculine nouns usually end with a consonant,
- feminine nouns with a final -a,
- neuter nouns with final -o or -e.
Although I was studying Serbian a bit here and there in the past few days, I could not find a dedicated time to focus on learning this language as my schedule was quite far from being healthy…
About a month ago, I had a small insight where it might be meaningful to use hashing algorithms to encode a molecule which might be represented in graphical manner.
The group I am part of at the moment, Theoretical Chemical Physics (TCP) group in the Université du Luxembourg, has a tradition where the doctoral researchers of the group would take turn in presenting the journal article they read in the past week. The presentation is usually on the Wednesdays, and my turn came up today.
For some unknown reason, I felt the urge to re-start learning the Ancient Egyptian just after I finished designing my new GitHub homepage. In many ways, I knew that re-learning the Hieroglyphic Egyptian was a bad idea as I failed miserably the last time I tried learning it. Also, as the current era semi-forces me to keep my knowledge in digital format, learning Egyptian as a man in early 30s meant that he had no other choice but to learn how to write hieroglyphs or hieratic or demotic scripts digitally. The fact that I’d personally be very interested in learning how to write and speak in Coptic is not helping at all. It is probably a good thing that my miserable failure in learning Egyptian is helping me not to study Coptic–PhD is already a full-time job.
