I have set up virtual hosting on my Nginx server to support multiple hosts. Now my PDFs are available via HTTP as well as FTP. Check out the site: http://pdf.markcarter.me.uk
There are only two articles at the moment:
- aswath.pdf – a useable document detailing my Python Aswath Module, which reproduces some of the DCF models used by Aswath Damodaran
- defuzz.pdf – which investigates the simplification of the defuzzification process in Fuzzy Logic.
I am excited about a couple of other articles that I am writing. One is a mathematical diversion about leaning ladders on a wall (you can really write articles about that?), and another one is about simplifying the antecedants in Fuzzy Logic problems. I wrote a Python program which solved a complete problem in under 100 lines, which includes code for the “toolbox”. Very neat.
Although my website/blog is seen by most as investing-related, the mathematical and programming articles are beginning to attract more interest. Might I even start digging out parts of my PhD thesis and turning them into blog articles and YouTube videos? When I did my PhD, YT was unheard of. However, I think that the systems I studied might make good videos. Earlier this year, I saw a video of a beehive where the bees moved in such a way that “waves” appeared to propagate over the hive. That was very interesting, because it very much reminded me of the excitable reaction-diffusion systems I had been studying for my PhD.
It’s very difficult finding all the time to fit my interests in.
