### Traveling Salesman with paths instead of points

I have a rectangular area filled with vector paths (an SVG document, to be precise). Starting at the origin, I need to visit every part of every path. For an open path, like a line or an arc, I would ...

### Bayesian LASSO: A step within the Gibbs sampler

I'm intending to implement a Bayesian LASSO inside the Gibbs sampler I use to estimate a multivariate time-series model, but I have a doubt about how to draw this step. The prior is a Double-...

### Estimating sum of distinct numbers in a list

Suppose that each item on a list of $n$ items has a value attached to it, and let $ν(i)$ denote the value attached to the $i$ th item on the list. Suppose that $n$ is very large, and also that each ...

### Simulating uniformly on $S^1=\{x \in \mathbb{R}^n \mid \|x\|_1=1\}$

A scheme to generate random variates distributed uniformly in $S^2=\{x\in \mathbb{R}^n \mid \|x\|_2=1\}$ is well known: generate a standard normal variate in $\mathbb{R}^n$ and normalize it to unit ...
