### Clay Mathematics Institute: Millennium Prize Problems

So I figured out how I am going to rule the world:

Phase 1: Investigate Navier-Stokes equations.

Phase 2: Understand them

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

Albert Einstein

Uh oh.

Phase 3: Collect Million dollar prize.

Phase 4: Use knowledge to create hella good sailboat.

Final Phase: Sail boat.

### Classes

http://www.math.washington.edu/~dumitriu/m380_au10.html Math 380, with Iouana Dumitriu. Intermediate Topics. Mostly proving things.

http://courses.washington.edu/phys331/index.php Phys 331, with Joe Rothberg. Optics Lab.

http://www.math.washington.edu/~zchen/M394.html Math 394, with CHEN,ZHEN-QING. This is a fun class. It is half a broken-english translation puzzle, and half a set of probability problems. This actually might prove to be a valuable skillset, even though I never planned to learn it!

https://catalyst.uw.edu/workspace/benstph/16368/92462 Math 300, with Ben Stephens. Very code-centric.

Sailing on through.

### Cockpit Seats

The cockpit benches on Keet are complete!

This was a pretty huge first project in glasswork, but now I can tackle almost anything!

- 1/2 acx superply

- Polyester Resin

- Alkyd Primer

- White Gloss Alkyd Paint

- Epoxy

- 6oz Cloth

- 4oz Tape

- Brass Drains

- Drain Tubing

- SO-PAC Hatches
