A collection of notes and useful articles on numerical algorithms.



Markov Chains: A special type of stochastic process. The standard definition of a stochastic process is an ordered collection of random variables:

Self-Organized Criticality (SOC): “Self-Organized” means that from any initial condition, the system tends to move toward a critical state, and stay there, without external control. A system is “critical” if it is in transition between two phases.

Kernel Density Estimation: Because fuck histograms.
