Professional cycling has been rocked by scandals over the past years and recently the waves went even higher, when Floyd Landis, after 4 years fighting against his suspension, confessed his own doping and claimed that the practice is common and other riders and cycling officials are participating, including the cycling hero Lance Armstrong.
ruled the days in the boom time of factory automation. In discrete manufacturing, simplification means, less parts in a configuration, of good nature for machining, handling, assembly and in-line quality assurance.
I presented our hybrid UnRiskverse and our bootstrapping approach (develop UnRisk in partially UnRisk) to becoming very quick developers and customizers and let our quant users become quick developers. We use advanced development environments, like the Wolfram Workbench 2 and project management platforms (proprietary built around great open resources).
In quant finance forums, the questions on the right programming language pops up quite frequently. Like Why Do Quants Like C++ . In my contributions, I emphasize on analzse-requiremenst-and-choose-the-adaquete-programming-paradigm (not the other way arond). It is not always understood that one-size-fits-all does not fit for integrated industrial scale applications.
Market Plunge Baffles Wall Street . The stock market plunged Thursday in a harrowing five-minute selloff that appeared to be triggered by a breakdown of trading systems. After dropping nearly 1,000 points, the market rebounded but still closed down 3.2%, leaving Wall Street struggling to figure out what happened.
I am often asked questions like "How can I valuate a convertible bond in the Mathematica Front End?" or "How can I calibrate a LIBOR market model within Mathematica?" or .... After I have answered the question I also tell them to explore the usage of UnRisk in the Mathematica Front End at UnRisk Exploration. Following Documentation one can find the whole documentation of the UnRisk PRICING ENGINE - it's exactly the same documentation as our users find in the Mathematica Documentation Center.
