Re: Python tricks

As a Dutch patriot, you should be all over Python!
I was the first Dutch C++ patriot in 1989. BTW I hate petty nationalism. The Danes, Norsemen and Swedes make better compilers!.
You replaced nationalism by regionalism - or pan-scandinavism.

Re: Python tricks

One optimises a Python loop by removing the loop.
sum_x = 0
for x in xs:
  sum_x += x
to
sum_x = sum(xs)

Re: Forbidden energy states in the quantum mechanics of phosphorescent crystalline minerals.

Feynman didn't understand many things, judging from all the errors in his Lectures.
He was also an asshole to women: https://thebaffler.com/outbursts/surely ... an-mcneill

Re: Move over p-values...

q-values look more Bayesian than p-values. Don't you need a prior probability that H0 is true to calculate a q-value?

Re: DL and PDEs

I would look into methods used to test interpolation algorithms (which is what pricing models really are).

Re: Move over p-values...

Finished. My feelings about this work have improved. It describes a method of combining the results of a multiple number of tests for the same null hypothesis which a) supports "optional continuation", which is deciding to carry out another test after seeing the results of the previous test(s), and ...

Re: Why is Bellman Equation solved by backwards?

Any Bellman equation can be solved forward in time at least approximately, using a function approximation for the value function. But if you can use the backward induction, you should, because it will be more efficient.
