No, I am not a flat-earther. Quite the contrary, the ideas suggested here assume advanced scientific knowledge, such as quantum physics. The famous Cambridge-based physicist… Read More »Could we Live in a Universe with Fewer than Three Dimensions?
In part 1 here, we introduced an original class of point processes, generalizing the Poisson process which is a limiting case, in a simple and intuitive… Read More »Machine Learning Inference for Point Processes: A General, Simple Introduction with Simulations
Update: Part 2 of this article is now available, here. In this article, original stochastic processes are introduced. They may constitute one of the simplest… Read More »A Gentle, Original Approach to Stochastic Point Processes
The probability distributions introduced in this article generalize what is known as infinite convolutions of centered Bernoulli or Rademacher distributions. Some of them are singular… Read More »A New Class of Non-standard Probability Distributions
This article is part of a series about fun problems, offered with solutions. The previous one can be found here. This new problem falls in… Read More »Fun Mathematical Problem in Stochastic Geometry: Random Triangles
I am not a medical doctor, only a doctor in statistical science. Yet much of the political crisis has its origin rooted in data and… Read More »Covid: Predictions for the Next Ten Years
In this series, we discuss a technique to find either the minima or the roots of a chaotic, unsmooth, or discrete function. A root-finding technique… Read More »A New Machine Learning Optimization Technique – Part I
