Happy new year to all my readers! This report on my blog’s statistics (excerpt below) was generated by WordPress, and I figured as long as I have four or five unfinished drafts waiting to be completed I could share something light.

Here’s an excerpt from the report:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 360,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 7 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

Unfortunately these unfinished posts won’t be completed for another week or two, because I don’t have access to my workstation for the hoilday. Just as a sneak preview, the following topics have posts in progress:

The fundamental group, in our continuing series on computational topology.

Support Vector Machines, in our continuing series on machine learning.

The Probably Approximately Correct model, in our continuing series on machine learning.

A beginning post on graph search algorithms.

An application of the normalized information distance primers to machine learning.

In addition, we are in the process of planning posts on various topics in probability theory, mathematical finance, Shannon entropy and its applications, and computational category theory.

Until then, I can’t thank you all enough for your comments and your support!

man, just keep doing what you’re doing. the information and presentation here is top-notch.

I agree !
