I'm broadly interested in very applied math. I try to apply ideas from mathematics, statistics, machine learning, formal systems and computer science to solve real-world problems. Mostly in applied finance/quantitative trading, but in other areas if the mood takes me.
The following is for my own use, but feel free to borrow it -
Hi. It looks like you are new here. We are generally very willing to help, but we like users to show the work that they've done towards solving the problem on their own first. If you can edit your question to show the code you've written so far, and where you are stuck, then you will get a much better response.

Efficient algorithm for finding the minima of a piecewise linear function
Brian, typically this problem will need to be solved multiple times per second on a rolling basis - so speed is important, but it only needs to be "good enough". If a general purpose LP solver can solve in, say, less than 100ms, that will be well within the bounds of "good enough". |

Efficient algorithm for finding the minima of a piecewise linear function
Thanks. I will experiment with this and see how it turns out. Typically I will be considering n ~ 10^6 which may or may not be "extremely large" under your definition! |

Mathematical “urban legends”
Have you ever tried reading a mathematics textbook in Greek? It's surprisingly easy. |
