    It must be nice having a cat chase your tail for a change. As a dog, do you relish the activity of chasing your own? Although, having just read what is under your avatar I can see that it is not. Pity, you could have taught me the art. I'll be on my way, much saddened.

    It's a long story.

    Last September my previous advisor and I concluded our relationship. I got another advisor in July. It's not going too great. I spent a lot of time on developing and implementing a numerical method scheme which turns out to not match up with the "gold standard" method for the physical problem we're studying.

    To be specific, I work on crystal growth now, and the "standard" method is kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) methods, usually in a "solid-on-solid" framework. The regime of interest is "step flow", where there are 2D, relatively flat regions called "terraces" which are separated by "steps" of one atomic height. The idea behind the scheme I developed is to average out the diffusion of the terrace atoms while resolving the step sharply. Since KMC spends most of its time on the surface atom diffusion, this should in principle be faster. But for various reasons, my scheme doesn't work: it generates much lower numbers of terrace atoms than KMC.

    So now I'm trying to play with some toy problems instead to find another focus. Hopefully I finish by May 2018. At the moment I'm not looking much past that.

    Thanks Monte314. I've been there and got through it. Anytime one of us can clear the boulders out of the path for someone struggling behind us - always a good thing to pay it forward... ;-)

    Yet at the same time sheepishly go along with things they aren't comfortable with, without expressing this (let alone discussing it), building resentment and slowly strangling the relationship.

    It is so painfully relatable to me and I just know he probably won't give my words much weight.

    lol the way she didnt talked to me was in a weird way. Not the way she talked to me.

    But i probably did a gramer mistake, which caused you to misunderstand that. Or you were just kidding with me? I dont know. Its hard to say whats going on in the forum when your english knowledge is low :/
