Once again: Great job in Utah! Your exploits will be touted in an upcoming newsletter to students in the department.
- KYMAA Meeting, March 27 - 28, 2009 at Kentucky State University in Frankfort, Kentucky.
- How are you guys doing for rides, and other information for KYMAA?
- I'm planning on riding there with Aimee Krug, and will get in about 3:00.
- Do you want to prepare there?
- Two talks, early (8:20) on Saturday morning.
Do you want to do a run-through?
Celebration of Student Research
- April 8th, 1-3:30
- There are other activities, however.
- We need to turn slides into a poster
- Introduction to the problem
- Mystery of the two-sizes
- Attack on One-if-By problem
- Mass-Provisioning Model
- Attack on the Opportunistic problem
- Body Size Models
- Similar deal:
- Think about what aspects of the talk and poster will translate to the paper
- What do we need to add?
- I'd like to look at a couple of questions related to this:
- Do you see how to incorporate the non-opportunistic features?
- How do we incorporate the mass-provisioning?
- We're more interested in the combo meals.
- Non-linear Regression Primer (includes the best and most useful description of the estimation standard errors, under Hessian)
- We haven't talked enough about standard errors. Whenever we're doing non-linear regression, we end up with parameter estimates, but in many cases we don't have error estimates. There are approximations available, however....
I continue to work on simulate_both_pop.lsp: a simulation including all three populations of cicadas.
- Upshot: we can get some very interesting dynamics out of incorporating all three populations.
