Projects

Educational

  • Simulation of Physical Phenomena (Fun Simulations) (Lifelong Project)

    This is a project I started with the hope of trying new simulations and coming up with new ideas as I study Computational Physics and Complex Systems; and then upload them on github hoping that as the volume grows it becomes a suitable source of information and practice for students majoring in Complex Systems or Computational Physics. The simulations include topics such as: Qunatum Numerical Analysis, Molecular Dynamics, Self-Organized Criticality, etc.

  • A computational study of homophily and diffusion of common knowledge on social networks based on a model of Facebook

    This is a reproduction of the original paper by this name for our course in Computational Physics. In this article, we describe the Common Knowledge in Facebook (CKF) model of difusion and simulate it on two toy networks, an Erdos-Renyi and a scale-free network, by introducing a game-theoric approach to the model. We compute the appearance of homophily, contagion speard speed and size, and the probability of cascades. All of which are defined explicitly in the paper.

Side Projects / Tech Related

  • DotFiles

    This is a repository containing my config files for my most used applications in Arch Linux. It contains configs for applications like Alacritty, Zsh, Git, Conky, etc.
    There's also a bot that helps you install all the configs in one command.

Courses and Workshops

  • LaTeX Workshop -- Summer 2021

    This workshop is mostly intended for the freshmen of year 2021 at Sharif University of Technology. We will start with an introduction to LaTeX and its history; then we start with typesetting in English. While at it, we consider math mode, special characters, figures, references, label, etc. Afte that we try our hand in Persian (Farsi) and try doing the same things in persian.
    Students will join a class (link below) where there will be assignments as we proceed through the course. There are assistants available who will help the students with errors as we go through the assignments.

    Assistants: Ahmad Ramezanpour, Erfan Rahbari, Saleh Shamloo

Outside Physics

Here is a review of my activities and hobbies outside physics.

squash

Squash

I'm a fan of Squash. When I was at highschool, I got introduced to this sports. There was only 1 squash club in Yazd then that contained a gym and 3 squash courts. When I went there for my first visit, the person in charge let me into the court to try playing and hitting some shots. It was a wonderful experience. I have played squash to this day, at any time I had the oppurtunity to do so.
Squash is a sport that requires mental focus, speed, and technique simultaniously.

translation

Translation

I work at Iran Translation Network as a Persian-to-English translator. I chose this project-based job as a hobby since I was fluent in English and wanted to challenge myself in this subject. Translation is a job that requires extensive knowledge of both the original and the targeted culture. I take projects in general English as well as special orders in the fields of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics.
