Any clues about this Newton iteration formula with Jacobian matrix?

A while ago I wrote about using Boltzmann sampling to generate random instances of algebraic data types, and mentioned that I have some code I inherited for doing the core computations. There is one part of the code that I … Continue reading

Boltzmann sampling for generic Arbitrary instances

Update, 7/17/2017: this now exists; see https://byorgey.wordpress.com/2016/09/20/the-generic-random-library-part-1-simple-generic-arbitrary-instances/ . tl;dr: I know how to generate random instances of data types in a generic way, and even have some old code that already does all the hard work, but won’t have time … Continue reading

Random binary trees with a size-limited critical Boltzmann sampler

Today I’d like to talk about generating random trees. First, some imports and such (this post is literate Haskell). > {-# LANGUAGE GeneralizedNewtypeDeriving #-} > > module BoltzmannTrees where > > import Control.Applicative > import Control.Arrow ((&&&)) > import Control.Lens … Continue reading
