Understanding EMWS

  1. Feb 18, 2017 #1
    Hello, World;

    I'm a Computer Science(hence the "hello world" application) student at Louisiana State University. I've always had a kicked for physics but never have time to take the course (I work full-time at 40 hours a week and currently taking 19 hours of school). Here is the deal:

    I recently quit my job at the ITs department to join a Math professor write a program using html, css, and javascript to calculates and plot the graph of the Electromagnetic Waves Scattering. I'm now still working a solid 25 hours a week as a sushi chef, on top of school and this project at the same time. My problem, currently, is that I don't have a clue how it all works. I'm willing to put in the time and hours to figure it all out, but it is really hard to understand it without a good guide on where to start. I'm currently only in cal2 but I'm doing very well in the class; jumping ahead and teaching myself cal3 and Linear Algebra also (because I know these things are needed to understand EMWS).

    Now I'm not the type to go for the "get rich quick" type of deal. I'd like to understand everything in details but at the same time, my time is quite limited. Now the professor I'm working with is very nice, he is willing to pay me to just learn the material. However, I don't like taking money if I haven't done anything. Therefore, I need every guidance possible to help me understand all these businesses asap.

    Please, help, our project could become a good contribute to the physic community in the near future. As my jive best friend usually tells me: "help me help you!" o0)o0)

    No seriously haha please help!
