Small Beginnings

Finally, for all the people at Waterloo taking statistics and advanced calculus III, this term, I bring you the beginnings of my typesetted course notes! Check them out in the “Course Notes” section of this blog.

For the other people in some of my other classes, I’ve refrained from typesetting those due to how the lectures were structured:

  • CS330: Powerpoint slides were provided and classes were just discussions… exactly like a business course.
  • CS371: There are some awesome notes already online at this link.
  • ECON102: I do have notes on OneNote but these are not very clear unless one has attended L. Smith’s lectures.
  • ECON201: See CS330 for the same reasons.

I’ll continue to update the ones that I do have as the term goes on (without official posts), so be sure to spread the word to all of your friends taking the course. Hopefully in the coming weeks I will be able to find some more interesting content to blog about, but for now stay tuned for that Black-Scholes primer document!


Happy New Year Everyone!

To all my readers and friends out there, I just want to start off by wishing everyone a happy  new year! While you may not have heard from for a quite a while now, I assure you that I have been working on quite a few other projects. Here are a few that you look forward to:

  • First off, I decided to move and develop my LaTeX templates on GitHub, as per a recommendation by one of my friends, and you can now access the latest version here. Instructions are on the page in case you are not too familiar with the layout of the pages. I will still leave the link to the uWaterloo Linux website intact, but all development on that site will cease indefinitely (new files will be put up there, but not new webpages).
  • Also on GitHub, I have put up many of my coding projects, including a Stock/Black-Scholes Option simulator and a biased random walk. You can access them via this link.
  • Today (or tomorrow), I will hopefully be finishing off my “High school life, research topics, and advice for the young aspiring mathematician.” series so you can look forward to that.
  • Course notes will start coming up soon as I continue my quest to take over Lambertw’s empire of quality notes
  • I have decided to publish the fish population article for lack of updates from the original website on that problem. The problem of the square through the sphere is still under development.
  • In the future, I will be restoring my old extended essay into a cleaner LaTeX form
  • Currently I am developing a cleaner way to view projects on the site. Suggestions are appreciated; right now I am thinking of just moving everything to GitHub.
  • As for the few projects that I will be putting off, these include my Ray Tracing project and Black-Scholes mini-series due to the six-course load that I will be taking at Waterloo in the coming Winter.
  • For those of you who would like to see some an introductory article to Black-Scholes, I will be putting that up very soon.

I hope to see old and new readers coming in for the new year because now is where the content will be really flowing in!
