I am not an interviewer but if I were I would about using Python optimally. Forgetting numpy, scipy etc. for the moment
1. Top 5 datastructures
2. Efficient loops, arrays, matrices
3. How to speed up algorithms
UAT is the magic wand of AI.
It is based around measure theory which is not precise enough, mathematically (in the function approximation sense). In practice it seems to work until you use gradient descent.
Thank you, Lynette
These were the students who really wanted to work me. They want to work hard, I keep them fit and I do it with a smile :)
And all the honour goes to the students!
Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it.The thesis was a joy to me as well. There's a real story in there with a...
I have been an external supervisor at the University of Birmingham since 2014 for MSc students who research and produce a thesis in the summer months June-September. The focus is on analysing a financial model, approximate it using numerical methods and then producing working code in...
yes, I used Random indeed and it was faster.
Contrary to the Zen of Python, there are multiple solution to a given problem..
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
I suppose each organization supports its code base in a given version of C++. Then you can have a policy to upgrade to next version of C++. Admin and technical organizational issues,
C++11 is a huge release; C++14 is a fix IMO, C++17 is stuff that Boost had for years and haven't looked at C++20...
But then you have to extract it! You are thinking of alchemy? :-)Seriously, I reckon it can be very mathematical (group, ODE, PDE etc.)
I have noticed that people with an Econometrics background focus on certain applications of (discrete) mathematics and not on others that are somewhat more quantitative/numeric/applied in nature. Some possible attention points off-hand:
Continuous models (ODE, SDE, PDE) and their...
I will answer the first part of your question: C++ is a great skill to learn and it helps you become a good programmer (in this context Python and R are just (albeit useful) scripting tools. The best course around IMHO (I am the originator) is Quantnet/Baruch C++ courses...
