  1. raneys: minor work on lemma 9 pf.

    I just realized I have a serious problem with my current proof. It's serious
    enough that the entire lemma may be false. I'm going to have to think about

  1. raneys: work on lemma 9 pf.

Commits on Jun 23, 2015
  1. raneys: start pf of lemma 9, add g_k outline img.

    I found it challenging to get the image close to a quality level I'm
    ok with. I wish I knew how to set it up entirely as a vector-based
    image. I also wish I knew how to exclude the figure caption in the pdf
    output; in that case I'd have excluded the caption entirely in both
    output formats.
  2. raneys: add todo item so I don't forget it.

    This could have been a github issue, but focusing on this one file is my
    current workflow, so this makes more sense to me in this special case.

  1. raneys: add statement of Pr sum-pos for rand x.

    Next up I would like to renumber the results to be more consistent. The
    claim will be numbered, and I'll probably rename it to a lemma.

  1. raneys: add theoretical rnd x value of E sigma(x).

    Specifically, this is what I came up with today, for length-n x:
    E sigma(x) = n * (2n-1)!! / (2n)!!
    This is a value that strictly increases without bound, albeit slowly.
    I'm afraid it may take some time for me to write this part up nicely.
    My current proof is much more involved than any of the previous proofs
    in the notes.

  1. raneys: add code to explore sigma of rand x seq.

    As opposed to rand s seq.

  1. raneys: update sigma(x) to work on all valid seqs.

    What's new is that sigma(x) will now work properly on sequences that
    need to be shifted, as in they aren't given in a sum-positive order, but
    do have a positive total sum.

  1. raneys: rm old section 3 text, add lua test code.

    The new Lua code empirically checks property 7. So far, the results look

  1. raneys: finish proof on unif rand perms.

    I realize this is a small proof to a relatively easy fact. I may
    consider moving it out into prose.

  1. raneys: rewrite sect 3 intro to random sequences.

    This resets the context in which we'll work there.

  1. raneys: minor tweaks to Lua script.

    I checked out a discrete version; qualitative behavior looks similar,
    but not identical, to the continuous case.

  1. Add raneys.lua to empirically test ideas.

    It turns out my assumptions were waaay off with respect to the
    distribution of permutations of partial sums of a sequence of uniformly
    random values. I'm a surprised and intrigued by what I see here.
  2. raneys: realize smth I thought was true is false.

    I'll have to reconsider how I'm doing things in the final section.
    It may be a good idea to write my code now that empirically checks

  1. raneys: complete pf of new property 5.

    This proof ended up being more complicated than I wanted it to. I wonder
    if there's a way to clarify and simplify it.

  1. raneys: start writing up bounds on int sequences.

    Starting with this commit, property 5 will be about bounds, and what I
    previously called property 5 will soon be renamed property 6 or possibly
    another number. Sadly, my current manual numbering system is suboptimal
    and something I hope I can improve on within my system.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
