I'm broadly interested in very applied math. I try to apply ideas from mathematics, statistics, machine learning, formal systems and computer science to solve real-world problems. Mostly in applied finance/quantitative trading, but in other areas if the mood takes me.


The following is for my own use, but feel free to borrow it -

Hi. It looks like you are new here. We are generally very willing to help, but we like users to show the work that they've done towards solving the problem on their own first. If you can edit your question to show the code you've written so far, and where you are stuck, then you will get a much better response.

comment Product of $n$ power series
The question needed a little cleaning up, but it was a long way from a 'broad non specific question' and it shows clear evidence of some research. I've edited to make it more obvious what's being asked. In general I think the first response to a question like this should be to edit for clarity rather than downvote.

comment Length of a number
By 'length' do you mean 'number of digits'? In that case the longest intermediate sum will always be that resulting from multiplying the rightmost digit of the smallest number in the product by the largest number in the product, and then padding with zeros.

comment Kruskal and Prim
+1 for the (newly edited) question and for ShreevatsaR. When an ambiguity in a question can be cleared up by a Google search, our first instinct should always be to edit the question rather than jumping straight in with a downvote - particularly when it's a new user.
