Public Talk: Is this your card?
Location: University of Melbourne
Speakers: Anthony Mays & Jen Palisse
Pick a card, any card! The immortal phrase of the magician. In this talk, we’ll look at some great card tricks that have simple maths behind them.
Occasionally R might not be the tool you want to use (hard to believe, but apparently that happens). Then you may need to export some data from R via a csv file. When the data is stored as a ts object, the time index can easily get lost. So I wrote a little function to make this easier, using the tsibble package to do almost all of the work in looking after the time index.
