Re: Smoothing splines (clamped spline)

The problem is finding a risk neutral density from option quotes. The spline approach which I abandoned was: fit a smoothing spline to option smile data, with given derivative endpoints.  The purpose of the derivatives, as opposed to so-called 'natural' boundary conditions, was to be improved extra...

Stick to Ringnes, When things go wrong and will not come right Though you do the best you can When life looks black as the hour of night A pint of plain is your only man When money's tight and hard to get And your horse has also ran When all you have is a heap of debt A pint of plain is your only ma...

Re: is medicine a science ?

"Kids are different today
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day"

Re: Boris Johnson - the last 100 days

Great idea! You start it.
Right. This could be a multi-dimensional use-case landscape and it could be quite hilarious. Maybe also a bumpy ride, we can always hope.

Re: norway

In NL, the elite call it  champignon (more expensive) ; for the rest of us it is called paddestoel
You can sell anything in a restaurant here provided you give it a French name. No kidding.

Few years ago we have a simple pasta for two in Selfoss and it cost Euro 75. Norge is close.

Idea: a thread on stand-up-comedy, per land. What makes a good joke ... it differs per country.

Thus, France persists. It took Napoleon to destroy the Holy Roman Empire. There is no (currently) no Na...
