That last komma is a fix. 'sadly' should be upstream.

Re: UK and the EU: In or out?

Another Eurocrat with bad teeth. This time the  Plagiarist-in-Chief . There's something rotten in the teeth of Brussels. But not just the teeth. My German is a little rusty, but even without running it through a translator it kind of looks like she was cleared and allowed to keep her degree. How's ...

I find CSM is nowhere like Lyness/Moler application of the Cauchy integral formula, unless they both use complex arithmetic. Maybe I missed something.

In what sense AD scales badly? I use Sacado library. Never failed me. BTW, you forgot that Complex Step Method is called Higham method these days :-) I only can't remember who developed it, computer science or machine learning dudes... Not true, neither 1. Squire and Trapp (1998?). IMO Higham has e...

Re: Python tricks

Looking to source code, you can also see how to use SWIG to interface the C library to python. If possible, I always install "packages" from source code. That's a good practise I learned working on Linux. Good point.  Having precise black-box contract specifications would obviate the need for sourc...

Re: Python tricks

If you check the source code on github ,  it expects a double as an output for the function. If not,  it will throw an invalid argument error message. I used 1. instead of 1 myself (in FORTRAN REAL*x = 1.0,  x .EQ. 1 always FALSE afair), newbies might get confused. I wonder where and by whom this t...

Re: why happiness is ultimate the goal ?

I currently practice being unhappy and miserable. I've never been happier in my life. There's nobody left I can really trust, and we've always done everything together. When you make up your mind, send me a message - I'll meet you any place, any time, and when we do meet, it's you I want to see, no...

Don't be melodramatic. [gestures to people at conference] Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever?
