On Wednesday I presented a poster on the work I did over the summer at Lawrence Livermore at a Materials Day poster presentation. Like usual, nobody was interested in my poster once they realized it was about math and involved Green’s function, and most people didn’t seem to understand the significance of reducing a O(N logN) algorithm to O(N). I also realized that it’s impossible for a modeling poster to every win any awards (except at modeling conferences, of course) because when everyone else is describing how they want to stop global warming by putting viruses on transparent conducting bio-nano-spheres or something, you’re talking about math. And not that my poster was really award-worthy to begin with.
