A note on new user referrals and sharing

Many early-stage startups or “apps” depend on word-of-mouth referrals and social media recommendations from users like you. We’ve worked very hard to build TutorBuddies and take great pleasure in ensuring that you are satisfied with our application.

It is such an important part of our growth that we kindly ask every new user to do one thing for us: if you like our application, if you think it’s cool, if you find it to be practical, then please refer us to any of your friends that you feel may find TutorBuddies useful. If there isn’t one friend that you can refer us to, then please like or share us via Facebook and Twitter and leave an endorsement there.

Please remember that we love your feedback.

Thank you very much!

My Story

Hello.

My name is Dr. Sheldon Cooper. You may recognize me from the popular TV show "The Big Bang Theory". If you keep refreshing this page you will find the colours in my profile keep changing!

I received my first PhD at age sixteen and am currently a theoretical physicist doing research at the California Institute of Technology, focusing on string theory and its alter ego M-theory. I have held this position for three-and-a-half years.

Previously, I was a visiting professor at the Heidelberg Institute in Germany at age fifteen and examined perturbative amplitudes in N=4 supersymmetric theories leading to a re-examination of the ultraviolet properties of multiloop N=8 supergravity using modern twistor theory at age sixteen.

I am solely responsible for the university's six-loop quantum gravity calculations. I am also the smartest person I know. I am aware that others seem me as a nerd, but I hves very little time for what others think of me, since I'm smarter than them.

5 Courses

Human Evolution (AN 230)

Completed July 2015

Introduction to human evolution, which is essential for understanding our species. Natural selection, sexual selection, genetics, systematics, behavioral ecology, and life history theory are covered.

The order Primates is surveyed. Primary emphasis is on the hominid fossil and archeological record. Behavior, cognition, and culture of nonhuman primates and hu- mans, as well as physical variation in present-day humans, is examined.

Computational Mechanics Simulation using Particles (AE 228)

Completed January 2014

Particle simulations of continuum and discrete systems. Advances in molecular, mesoscopic, and macroscale simulations using particles, identification of common computing paradigms and challeng- es across disciplines, discretizations and representations using particles, fast summation algorithms, time integrators, constraints, and multires- olution.

Exercises will draw on problems simulated using particles from diverse areas such as fluid and solid mechanics, computer graphics, and nanotechnology.

AE 221 (Space Structures)

Completed January 2014

This course examines the links between form, geometric shape, and structural performance. It deals with different ways of breaking up a continuum, and how this affects global structural properties; structural concepts and preliminary design methods that are used in tension structures and deployable structures.

Space Optical System Engineering (AE 159)

Completed January 2014

Introduction to optical system engineering for remote sensing from space will be presented. End-to-end optical systems are discussed within the framework of the 10 scientific/technical disciplines required to build a successful system: optical engineering, physical optics of materials, solid-state physics/detectors, mechanics and mechanisms engineering, wavefront sensing and control, structures and dynamics, thermal engineering, spacecraft engineering, psychology of vision and software processing of images, and end-to-end system validation and calibration.

Emphasis will be on the development of optical engineering tools in the context of comic book spacecraft.

Space Propulsion (AE 121)

Completed January 2014

Expert knowledge of: Modern aspects of rocket, electrical, and nuclear propulsion systems and the principles of their application to lifting, ballistic, and spaceflight trajectories. Combustion and burning characteristics of solid and liquid propellants, liquid-propellant fuel systems, and combustion instability.

Fundamentals of electric propulsion including ion thrusters, MHD, Hall effect, and arcjets. Introduction to spacecraft station-keeping, stability, and control.
