### Waiting for a 1000+ point Rayleigh-Sommerfeld Integral to Integrate

Well, I'm waiting for a 1000+ point Rayleigh-Sommerfeld integral to . . . well . . . integrate on Matlab.
So, I have some time on my hands! I should be doing reading some papers, but I'm not!

Here are some random cool things I've found:

Outline of Proof of Poincare Conjecture: Perelman Proof

Definition of a Ricci Flow

The reason why I find this particularly interesting is because such a large part of my research involves the heat equation, and the Ricci Flow is a modification of the heat equation, applied to the continuous deformation of a manifold. Very interesting stuff!
