Day 6 Summary
Today was spent working on a paper describing the error in the Shack-Hartmann sensor. This paper is more clear in what it is doing, but also longer and more mathematically complicated than the original paper. In this paper I did find the noise equation used in the original paper, and this paper does explain the issues with that, the rest of the day was spent slowly working through this paper and looking at other papers to find a more accurate Shack-Hartmann variance. I also looked at a masters thesis which had a model for the Shack-Hartmann sensor, but some of the files needed for the model weren't available and with my current knowledge I couldn't generate them.
