## Daily schedule †

• 09:00-10:00 Discussion (1)
• 10:00-12:00 Solve the problem and write the progress on pukiwiki
• 12:00-13:30 Lunch
• 13:30-14:30 Discussion (2)
• 14:30-16:30 Solve the problem and write the progress on pukiwiki
• 16:30-17:30 e-mail report and problems

## Goal of the project. †

• To describe the thermal conductivity of Nanotubes and graphene. The output will be an animation of atomic vibration and its propagation in Mathematica
• Keywords: Thermal conductivity, carbon nanotubes, Differential equation, Fourier Transform, Solid-state physics, Mathematica

• Tutorial takes place in Coffee room, since visitor room will be occupied with many people

• This section is for posting questions from Moya-san and answers from other group members.
• Please list here with some simple reasons or details.
• For every problem, give a tag double asterisks (**) in the code so that it will appear in the table of contents.
• For the answer, give a tag triple asterisks (***) in the code below the problem in order to make a proper alignment.
• List from new to old.

## Report: †

### June 3: †

Today, Hasdeo-san picked me up from Urban Castle Kawauchi (UCK) with Thomas-san. I learned how to get to the lab by campus bus and have been introduced to the lab, Saito-sensei and the secretaries. Hadeo-san taught me about coupled oscillators, where I learned how to solve for the motion of two masses connected by springs. The goal is to model heat in CNT's as atoms vibrating with springs. Thomas-san also lectured me and taught me some math. He taught me how to solve the 2-dimensional Laplacian using separation of variables. He also provided some insight on the applications solving the laplacian. So far, everyone seems very nice and I am very excited to start working on thermal conductivity, which was a surprise.
