Re: Asymptotic behaviour of ODE/PDE (large time)

The more I investigate Gradient Descent (GD) the more I believe ML have opened a can of worms (in their naivety).

Re: No new C++ until 2010, no concepts

Concepts and this (?) A final remark on the relative merits of producing analytical solutions versus defining a finite difference framework that subsumes and supports a range of pdes sharing similar structure and functionality: in the former case each new specific option type will need its own speci...
