## Using Julia to compute the Kantorovich distance

Publié le 9 Avril 2014 par Stéphane Laurent

GLPK library In the article 'Using R to compute the Kantorovich distance' I have shown how to use the cddlibb C library through R with the help of the rccd R package to compute the Kantorovich distance between two probability measures (on a finite set)....

## The binary splitting with the R gmp package - Application to the Gauss hypergeometric function

Publié le 30 Novembre 2012 par Stéphane Laurent dans R, Mathematics

In this article you will firstly see how to get rational numbers arbitrary close to $$\pi$$ by performing the binary splitting algorithm with the gmp package. The binary splitting algorithm fastly calculates the partial sums of a rational hypergeometric...
