      BlackMax3 Update 20m
      Speaker: Mr Warren Carlson (University of the Witwatersrand)

      List of outstanding issues:
      • Need to check that the units throughout the code are indeed in GeV
      • Compare the different definitions of the extradimensional Gravitational Constant and Planck Scale used in the code with the ones in the literature (BlackMax Manual and published paper)
      • Add units and legend to all plots
      • In slide 9 of the talk, why is the range of the Hawking Temperature so little? Possible problem with units. The Schwarzschild radius units seem wrong too
      • Also in slide 9, why is the range different for each value of n?
      • To make direct comparisons with BlackMax, need to reproduce figures 1 and 2 of the BlackMax paper

      BlacMax 3 Update 18th December 20m
      Speaker: Mr Warren Carlson
      List of checks/outstanding issues:
      • Check the gamma function against a standard one used in Mathematica/Maple (or against code found online)
      • Dimensions of the M^* formula, at the moment that looks dimensionless
      • Saw tooth behaviour in slide 3, plot each separate part of the function to understand where it comes from. Might be an issue with the gamma function
      • Check formula in slide 5 against the literature
      • Provide values for R_Sch and G_D from BlackMax2

      BlackMax 3 20th December Meeting 20m
      Speakers: Mr Marc Bret, Mr Warren Carlson
      List of outstanding tasks:
      • Remake the plots reproducing BlackMax2 results with the correct labels (done)
      • BlackMax3: Validate all the Math libraries
      • BlackMax3: Check throughout the code that the convention for the number of dimensions is consistent: can use "d" for total number of spacelike dimensions and "n" for the number of extra dimensions
      • Need to reproduce figure 1 from the BlackMax PRD paper as a stepping stone towards reproducing figures 2-6
