SURF Log -- Day 1, Getting Started
For Wednesday, June 16:
I attended the LIGO Orientation and first Introduction to LIGO lecture in the morning. In the afternoon, I ran a few errands (got keys to the office, got some Computer Use Policy Documentation done) and toured the lab. I then got Cygwin installed on my laptop along with the proper SSH packets and was successfully able to log in to and interact with the Hartmann computer in the lab through the terminal, from the office. I have started reading relevant portions of Dr. Brooks' thesis and of "Fundamentals of Interferometric Gravitational Wave Detectors" by Saulson.
