Summer and Midyear Interns 2017
In the early part of summer 2017 Val Marc Roger Jagmis of the Polytechnic University of the Philippines was accepted as an intern of SanD. His training involved the operation of the molecular dynamics simulation software LAMMPS and data parsing. Later, DOST-SEI scholars Samuel Augustus Toledo of Central Mindanao University and Lemuel Tabutol of University of Northern Philippines entered the internship program. They learned how to write numerical integrators in Fortran to solve differential equations encountered in chaos theory.
SanD also worked with six PSHS scholars for the 2017 PSHS-NIP Summer Immersion Program: Reanna Ayn Lachica (SOCCSKSARGEN), John Lian Mar Catli (Cagayan Valley), Ramon Alexander Fantilagan (Diliman), Ivan Richmond Jumawan (Central Mindanao), Joaquin Salvador (Diliman), and Ann Therese Sobretodo (Western Visayas). They were taught calculus and other analytic methods needed to study the chaotic behavior of logistic maps and Lorenz attractors.
