Leela Chari Research Journal (Summer '22)

06/27-07/01

06/27

  • Continued generating light curves for individual days of flare
  • Started compiling VEGAS analysis into a document
06/29
  • Finished adding 2020 light curves to document
  • Running VEGAS analysis for 2020-2021 so I can generate light curves for this tomorrow
06/30
  • Started reading Isabella's guide for the source and some linked sources
  • REU lecture (left for campus at 2pm)
07/01
  • Worked on preliminary document
    • Need to make sure that final results are excluding the large Zenith runs
  • Looked briefly at code from Qi for fitting light curves and spectra

07/04-07/08

07/05

  • Group meeting at 10am (went over presentation)
  • REU Lunch talk at 12:30pm
  • Grad school discussion with Prof. Karagiorgi at 2pm
07/06
  • Looking more at code for fitting spectrum, trying to learn how to do this
  • Same as above for light curve
07/07
  • Put together slides for meeting
  • REU Lecture + Lab tour (Leave for campus at 2pm)
07/08
  • Meeting at 12pm
  • Read over AGN theory slides (Frank Rieger)
  • Ran analysis with log parabola spectral fit

07/11-07/15

07/11

  • BNL Trip
07/12
  • Made more progress with fitting light curve but running into issue with chi sq. value, so need to fix this
  • REU Biophysics lecture + lab tour (Left for campus at 1pm)
07/13
  • Starting AGN theory slides for Thursday (will also use part of this for Friday blazar group meeting)
  • Next steps before final article/presentation (based on today's meeting):
    • Continue working on fit for 2/25 light curve
      • First constant
      • Then piecewise exponential
    • Figure out how to calculate size of source based on variability
    • Eventually plot Fermi data side by side
    • Plot light curve for 2020-2021 time period
07/14
  • Finished fit for 2/25 light curve
  • Group meeting at 1pm
  • Finished presentation for blazar group meeting
07/15
  • Prepped for meeting at 12pm
  • Plotted 2020-2022 light curve -- looks off so will try different bin size, maybe plot in smaller time ranges first
