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 Is a line parallel with itself?
+1: I made exactly this point in a comment on another answer - which now seems to have been deleted! It was also pointed out that the relation 'is parallel to' is not even transitive unless a line is parallel to itself.

comment Algorithm for partitioning n into distinct primes
Can you assume that you have a list of the primes below $n$? If so an algorithm to do what you want is trivial: you write $f(n,k)$ which lists the partitions of $n$ into a sum of $k$ primes, and for each prime $j<n$ you call $f(n-j, k-1)$. Your base case if $f(n,1)=\{n\}$ if $n$ is prime, and $f(n,1)=\{\}$ otherwise. This will probably scale quite horribly (maybe worse than exponentially) although you will be able to improve the performance significantly by memoization.
