## Thinking about path integrals …

Been busy this past week running “micro-simulation” models for my day job; “micro-simulation” = build a computer code to simulate a whole population of people, send a swarm of simulated infectious mosquitos after them, and then simulate the process of … Continue reading

## The hyper-parameter method for unification of cosmological experiments …

I noticed a paper by Johnson et al. presenting cosmological constraints from the 6dF galaxy velocity survey on astro ph today. What caught my eye here was their discussion of the “hyper-parameter method” for combined inference from a collection of … Continue reading

## Fisher matrices, functional regression, and stan …

Last week’s astro-ph mail out saw an interesting contribution by Heavens et al., who present a formula for computing the Fisher information of an experiment to estimate what appears to be the slope and coefficient of a linear regression model with … Continue reading

## Random musing / lost in a labyrinth of c++ …

So … this was meant to be where I would post the description of the 6th (and final) statistical trend on my list to revolutionise astronomical data analysis, but I’ve been lost this week in a labyrinth of c++ coding; meaning … Continue reading
