Miles Garcia Research Journal (Summer '21)

Line: 26 to 26
 
  • Started working on REU Intro Presentation for Monday's REU Lunch (General overview of research, background, goals, people working with)
  • Produced basic plots on GRB data-- Number of observations per year, number of LAT and Swift observations (total and by year)
  • Began putting together slides for Monday group meeting (update on VEGAS setup, next steps: choosing which GRBs to analyze)
Changed:

  • Read VERITAS Inauguration article (https://cerncourier.com/a/veritas-telescopes-celebrate-first-light/), HESS first VHE GRB article (https://www.mpi-hd.mpg.de/hfm/HESS/pages/home/som/2019/12/#Ref3), and first TeV GRB article (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-019-1750-x) and wrote down key points about GRBs to add to Monday group meeting slides

 6/12:
  • Finished REU Intro Presentation
  • Finished slides for Monday group meeting
Line: 128 to 128
 
  • Started on VEGAS testing. Want to test VEGAS to see what configurations cause crashes (and what the errors are) from: [2.5.7 vs 2.5.8, itm on vs itm off, TDRBM on vs TDRBM off]. 2^3 = 8 configurations. Will use Crab dataset that I already ran for the runlist (this also knocks out one configutation, 2.5.8 no itm no TDRBM).
  • First step for this is to set up stages 1-5 in itm on and off (have to do separately) for 2.5.7 and 2.5.8. Then I can run those in stage6 with TDRBM on/off.
  • Barnard Summer Colloquium Series

7/16:
  • Stages 1-5 for VEGAS testing done, proceeding to stage 6 (first TDRBM off then on, 2.5.8 first, then 2.5.7). Results are recorded in a spreadsheet.

  • Attempting to combat GRB170519A errors-- used commandline to update permissions on s1 file that was causing crashes because it got permission denied to access.
  • Still getting some weird issues though, so going to have to look at it again-- now issue in s2?
7/19:
Line: 145 to 145
 
  • Completed addition to python code to add labels for all regions (Source + exclusion) on each plot, directly from .reg file (except names which are only commented in the .reg file)
  • Used the code to save significance and excess plots for all GRBs with s6 completed w/ updated labels
  • Re-ran GRB170519A s4 itm for run 86212 with debug and saved files for s1-s4 to look at the segfault error in the run
Added:

7/22:
  • Updated code for plots to correctly fit the plot labels when saving the files to computer (was getting cut off but used tight fit mode)
  • Remade all plots that had labels cut off
  • Barnard Summer Colloquium Series
7/26:
  • Collected all GRB plots + vegas results for group meeting slides
  • Fixed a few plots which were accidently redundant
  • Made group meeting slides
7/27:
  • Started reading flux descriptions and VEGAS + UL documents
  • Started outline for final paper
  • Last REU Lecture
7/28:
  • Talked with Deivid about calculating upper limits
  • Tried to calculate Luminosity UL for SN2020tcw (which Deivid also did, to make sure that I am doing it right)
  • Continued outline for paper
7/29:
  • Re-did my UL calculation for SN2020tcw after talking with Deivid a bit more, now it is working
  • Calculated luminosity UL for my GRBs (the 4 that are good to go) using python code
  • Started actual paper
  • Last Barnard Summer Colloquium Series
7/30:
  • Continued writing paper
7/31:
  • Continued writing paper
  • Started making the final presentation slides
8/1:
  • Continued making final presentation slides
