[math] Examples

Phil Steitz
Apologies for the cross-post.  Please respond to just the dev list.

I am going to do a talk on Commons Math at Apachecon US in Portland
next February.  One of the things I want to do in the talk is to
present some examples of practical use of the library.  I would love
to get some examples from the community that I could use, with
acknowledgement, under the ASL.

Ideal examples can be described simply (i.e., not too much arcane
domain-specific theory needed to understand the practical
application) and use [math] APIs simply and directly.  For example,
one of my own applications is a discrete event simulator that uses
[math] APIs to generate event inter-arrival times and to accumulate
latency statistics.  Part of the goal of the talk in general and the
examples in particular is to show people how to find the things they
need to solve problems using [math], so some information on how you
found your way to the needed goodies (or helped us improve the
library so the goodies you needed were there) will also be helpful.

Thanks in advance for any contributions.  We can discuss ideas on
the dev list, or you can send me private mail.  I will take code and
descriptions in any form.

Thanks!

Phil

RE: [math] Examples

Hi Phil,

I use various parts of Commons Math (CM) for a program I created for
psychometrics called jMetrik, www.ItemAnalysis.com. It does a variety of
statistical procedures from basic descriptive statistics to item response
theory and test equating. jMetrik has a fairly large international user
base. I'm currently working on version 3, which involved a full switch to CM
3.0. Feel free to use the program description on the homepage of the
website. The code is pretty extensive, but I can provide specific examples
of how I use CM. I first found CM several years ago when I was searching for
source code for numerical optimization. I'm happy to help out. Let me know
if you would like more information.

Patrick

Thanks, Patrick!  Yes, it would be great if you could provide some
examples.  What would be doubly cool is if there are some showing
either how you helped us make needed improvements and / or still
existing deficiencies you are helping address (e.g. missing data ;)

Thanks again.

Phil
