Markov Chain Simulation
I’ve been reading up on Markov chains and related concepts. On the wikipedia page there is an example of a 2 state Markov process. I decided to simulate it in R and plot the mean of the means. Quick Code example here: The mean of means (of state e) is close to .36. If you […]

Simulating the Monty Hall Problem in R.
The Monty Hall Problem is famous in the world of statistics and probability. For those struggling with the intuition, simulating the problem is a great way to get at the answer. Randomly choose a door for the prize, randomly choose a door for the user to pick first, play out Monty’s role as host, and […]

Clustering in R
Clustering is a useful technique for exploring your data. It groups records into clusters based on similar features. It’s also a key technique of unsupervised learning. The following is a simple example in R where I plotted the clusters and centroids. The example uses the mtcars dataset built into R, which contains auto data extracted […]
