ComPAIR

ComPAIR is education software that I've been developing with a group of Professors and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT). It's an implementation of Adapitive Comparative Judgement and does a very simple thing: it allows a student to compare two assignments submitted by their peers and decide which is "better". It's simple, flexible and robust, allowing you to design assignments activities that lean on the pedagogical theory that people learn best through direct comparisons.

Theses

J. Charbonneau, PhD Thesis: Topological Currents in Dense Matter (2011). A harrowing collection of three papers, with many aspects thoroughly elucidated for the enjoyment of the reader, including a new derivation of the topological current and details of fun contour integrals.

J. Charbonneau, MSc Thesis: Vortex structures in neutron stars. (2007). Download it for the abstract, read the first three chapters for a good review of the Ginzberg-Landau description of superconducting and superluid vortices. One of the appendices contains the most difficult way to calculate the force between two current carrying wires.
