Fun Math: Infinite Nested Radicals of Random Variables - Connection with Fractals and Brownian Motions

Some original and very interesting material is presented here, with possible applications in Fintech. No need for a PhD in math to understand this article: I tried to make the presentation as simple as possible, focusing on high-level results rather than technicalities. Yet, professional statisticians and mathematicians, even academic researchers, will find some deep and fascinating results worth further exploring. Source code and Excel spreadsheets are provided for replication…

Simulated Stock Market: Original Gaming App Played with Real Money

I wrote earlier in 2019 an article entitled New Stock Trading and Lottery Game Rooted in Deep Math, see here. It features a number guessing game that -- depending on the parameters -- mimics either a neutral stock market or a lottery. The gain depends on the distance between your guess and the winning numbers. The average gain is zero, and…

Free Book: Deep Learning and Computer Vision with CNNs

By Dan Howarth and Ajit Jaokar, October 2019. 58 pages. CNN stands for Convolutional Neural Networks. Part 1 will introduce the core concepts of Deep Learning. We will also start coding straightaway with Tensorflow 2.0. In part 2, we use another dataset - the mnist dataset - to build on our knowledge. In particular, we will:

  • Introduce Computer Vision
  • Introduce convolutional layers into our models
  • Introduce the concept of…

Free Book: Getting Started with TensorFlow 2.0

By Amita Kapoor and Ajit Jaokar. In this book, we introduce coding with tensorflow 2.0. We show how to develop with tensorflow 1.0 and contrast how the same code can be developed in tensorflow 2.0. The book emphasizes the unique features of tensorflow 2.0. Earlier this year, Google announced TensorFlow 2.0, it is a major leap from the existing TensorFlow 1.0.

The key differences are:

  • Ease of use
  • Eager…

Creating maps in R using ggplot2 and maps libraries

Guest blog by  Michael Grogan.

Here is how we can use the maps, mapdata and ggplot2 libraries to create maps in R.



In this particular example, we’re going to create a world map showing the points of Beijing and Shanghai, both cities in China. For this particular…
