I am a graduate student studying astrophysics at Princeton. I received my bachelor's in physics and mathematics from Caltech (2011).

My primary interest is in general relativistic magnetohydrodynamics simulations of black hole accretion.

comment How do we know that the Law of Cooling is true?
Isn't the simple law often called "cooling in a draft" -- i.e., assuming enough motion so that the ambient medium has essentially infinite thermal conductivity, and the rate limiting step is the object-medium interface?

comment In continuum mechanics, why is the stress vector $T=\sigma\cdot n$ not a covector?
Is there some reason you're calling it the stress vector? I feel the issue of vector vs. covector is a red herring, given the more important issue of vector vs. rank-2 tensor.

comment Would a planet in a binary star system follow Kepler's Laws?
@user6760 All astronomy and astrophysics questions are on topic here, even with the launch of the other site. And there are plenty of astrophysicists here.
