Sports Gamblers Work on Formulas to Winning Money During Football Season: Jeff Glauser:
Bill Davis, who has taught courses ranging from advanced calculus to statistics for the past two decades, decided he too no longer wanted to fall into the category of people who bet the house only to lose their shirt.
About 10 years ago, the teacher became a student, as Davis began developing a formula for predicting the outcomes of games. After meticulous research and analysis, along with numerous
There are a few different but equivalent approaches to define independent random variables. We will use a simple approach based on the fact that we are only dealing with random variables that take finite number of values.So, assume a random variable ξ takes valuesx1, x2,..., xMwith probabilitiesp1, p2,..., pM.Further, assume a random variable η takes valuesy1, y2,..., yNwith probabilitiesq1, q2,..., qN.Let us remind that a random variable is a numeric function defined on each elementary event […]
Last week instead of writing a post on game theory I ended up writing some code related to game theory. The most commonly described games are 2×2 matrix games, and in an effort to make game theory easier to understand, I developed a website that can solve any 2×2 matrix game. Here is a thumbnail […]
The more time goes by since my mother’s death, the more I need her guidance. For the first X years I was just sad—sad for myself, sad in that primal way when you just cry like a baby, like a baby having no more complicated thought than Waaaaaah. And as well, from time to time, thoughts that were less about me and more about her: what would she be doing with her time these days, she would have laughed so hard at this movie. But—back to me again—as years pile up, I
Statistician Creates Model To Predict What's Next In Game Of Thrones: Mark Strauss:
Call it the ultimate spoiler: Richard Vale, a lecturer in the Statistics Department at the University of Canterbury, has developed a mathematical model to predict the fates of the characters in the next two Game of Thrones novels.
