$Complex arithmetic and airplane wings$

I was once told that the reason that such a shape was so commonly used for aeroplane wings was merely that then one could study it mathemtically by just employing the Zhoukowski transformation. I hope that this is not true! (R. Penrose, “The Road to Reality”, p.150) Penrose here talks about a complex holomorphic mapping

## Fancy HTML5 Slides with knitr and pandoc

April 22, 2012
By

Karthik Ram gave an Introduction to R a couple of weeks ago, and I strongly recommend you to take a look at his cool HTML5 slides. I started trying HTML5 slides last year, and now it is difficult for me to go back to beamer, which I have used for a few...

$Phase space plot of the kicked rotor$

In the idealized physical world, a rotor is simply a mass attached to an axis of length , free to move in the plane. Gravity and friction are absent. Such a rotor becomes a kicked rotor if it is periodically hit with a hammer. Every kick transfers momentum to the rotor and the time between

## Most profitable hedge fund style

This is not an investment advice!! Couple of weeks back, during amst-R-dam user group talk on backtesting trading strategies using R, I mentioned the most effective style for hedge funds is relative value statistical arbitrage, I read it somewhere. After … Continue reading →

## knitr Performance Report-Attempt 2

April 18, 2012
By

Over the years I have changed my learning process from reading thoroughly first before proceeding to reading minimally and then applying immediately.  I very quickly see the gaps in my knowledge.  This method is far more painful but seems to ...

## Linguistic Notation Inside of R Plots!

April 14, 2012
By

So, I've been playing around with learning knitr, which is a Sweave-like R package for combining LaTeX and R code into one document. There's almost no learning curve if you already use Sweave, and I find a lot of knitr's design and usage to be a lot nicer.I wasn't going to make a blog post or tutorial about...

## knitr Performance Report-Attempt 1

April 13, 2012

I get very excited about new R packages, but rarely is my excitement so fulfilled as with knitr.  Even with no skill, I have already been able to adapt the example Yihui Xie provides in his knitr Graphics Manual into a crude first version of a per...

## Getting knitr to work with StatET

April 13, 2012
By

StatET (an Eclipse plug-in that can handle, among other things, R) offers support for writing Sweave (.Rnw) documents. This is done via the external tool dialog, where one creates a new “device” that takes in a document and runs it over appropriate functions and programs. In this case, Sweave and LaTeX. This dialog can, however,

## What are the distributions on the positive k-dimensional quadrant with parametrizable covariance matrix? (solved)

April 7, 2012
By

Paulo (from the Instituto de Matemática e Estatística, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil) has posted an answer to my earlier question both as a comment on the ‘Og and as a solution on StackOverflow (with a much more readable LaTeX output). His solution is based on the observation that the multidimensional log-normal distribution still allows

## Writing reproducibly in the open with knitr

April 7, 2012
By

Sweave is something of a gold standard in reproducible research. It creates a dynamic document, written in a mix of LaTeX and R code where the results of the analysis (numbers, figures, tables) are automatically generated from the code and inserted into the resulting pdf document, making them easy to update if the data or
