Fox MFJ, A new method for the determination of action integrals in the study of galactic dynamics
Action-angle coordinates are an essential tool for understanding theproperties of the six dimensional phase space involved in orbits of stars ingalactic potentials. A new method, which does not require specific knowledge ofa generating function, is described, implemented and tested that calculates theactions of an orbit in an arbitrary potential of an integrable Hamiltoniangiven a set of Cartesian phase space points. The method chooses between thesimple harmonic oscillator and isochrone potentials to fit the data using aLevenberg-Marquardt routine. An average is taken over the angle coordinates bycalculating volumes in phase space using the metric free FiEstAS algorithm. Theperfect ellipsoidal potential, with actions chosen a priori, is used to testthe output of the algorithm, giving some results that agree within 1%.Minimisation of a sampling error is discussed along with an identification of asource of noise in the data.
Fox MFJ, Werth A, Hoehn JR, et al., Teaching labs during a pandemic: Lessons from Spring 2020 and an outlook for the future
We report results from a survey of lab instructors on how they adapted theircourses in the transition to emergency remote teaching due to the COVID-19pandemic. The purpose of this report is to share the experiences of instructorsin order to prepare for future remote teaching of labs. We include summaries ofresponses to help illustrate the types of lab activities that were done,learning goals for the remote labs, motivations for instructors' choices,challenges instructors faced, and ways in which instructors and studentscommunicated. This is a first step in a larger project as part of an NSF RAPIDgrant to understand what happened during the switch to remote labs and how itimpacted teaching methods and student learning.
