About This Project
PolyPhys is the cumulation of apps that I have made for entertainment and as tools for studying physics. I received my PhD from North Carolina State University in 2018, but my work has just begun. I am always striving to understand physics better. I am currently working on my own theory of everything, and making apps to simulate simple thought experiments has been very helpful so far in discovering new insights, which I discuss on my Youtube channel. My physics ideas are very abstract, but I hope that I can help others to understand physics the way that I do. I am trying to think about physics more creatively, in the style of physicists like Faraday and Lorentz, whose task was to imagine models for completely new phenomena. There is still much work like this to be done, and never has there been a better time for a physicist like me (a coder since age 12) to discover new "physical" phenomena by using code to test thought experiments at the outer limits of human understanding.

I have a LONG To-Do list, and what I've created here is just the beginning of my research. PolyPhys is essentially my virtual laboratory, with a diverse array of interactive apps representing high-level concepts in a way that both experts and non-experts can appreciate. All you have to do is watch and play, and if you find yourself observing something beautiful or perplexing while using these apps, then you might just be experiencing reality at its most fundamental level.

Thank you for helping me to create and share these tools with the world.

Future Plans?
Some upcoming apps I plan to make:
  • Forces from inter-field operators
  • Random noise in a harmonic tree model
  • OpticsLab, puzzle game consisting of aligning ultrafast spectroscopy experiments
  • Repeated annihilation particle grids
  • Coupling between longitudinal and transverse modes at an interface
  • Particle combs: Open vs closed
  • Generative music, dynamical sound filters, etc.
  • Can drafting accelerate the 2nd car? Wind tunnel.
  • 2D DFT, DFT of tree shapes, etc.
  • Lightning formation
  • Excitons and charge pairs in a semiconductor
  • Reverb simulation. Reverb removal via holographic reconstruction.
  • Convolving space with a simple machine
  • A social network for sharing and mutating simulations
  • ...

I approach each app organically, with a set of questions to be answered. If successful, the answers I find will launch me into my next set of questions, and so on... I've spent the past 6 months refining my coding to the point that a simple app takes less than a day to actually make, but some apps are bigger projects that will take weeks or months to make (OpticsLab, for example). An app like that may not be a good investment, given the opportunity cost of making it, but ultimately the decision should be left up to my fans and patrons, who can indicate adequate demand for those apps here, by helping those standalone projects meet their Goal.
