Optimizing a Prey-Predator model using Genetic Algorithms

Picture source: The Royal Society, Flickr The programming section of this blog has been quite inactive lately. Hence, here's an interesting little project I did last year. The idea started off as a biophysics class presentation in collaboration with Abhilash Sahoo. From there, I adopted it into an optimization tool through Genetic Algorithms. I've used … Continue reading Optimizing a Prey-Predator model using Genetic Algorithms

Blowing up a moving plane

I felt like sharing the solution of a simple yet interesting problem from the end-sem exam of our Numerical Analysis course. I've used R (learnt another language, yay!) and OriginPro. The solution involves solving differential equations and interpolation. Edit: The position values in x,y,z have been given in kilometres. Let's break down the problem: 1. … Continue reading Blowing up a moving plane

Probability distribution on Monopoly squares (using Python)

All squares on a Monopoly board aren't equally valuable in terms of payoff. It is common knowledge that the green and the deep blue squares are slightly less visited, whereas, red squares seem to be a lot busier. But these intuitions have no solid proof. Here's a program which calculates the probability distribution of a … Continue reading Probability distribution on Monopoly squares (using Python)
