It has been two year since the moment that I updated my CV for PhD application. It was a nightmare using MS word to make a beautiful two-page pdf file. Mouse-click items, align section titles, change font bold and italics. A whole day gone. So, since I am getting used to Rmarkdown-generated documents for any particular purpose, why not make a CV from it?
I occasionally saw this post that uses Rmarkdown for making academic CV.
Run R on HPC Load R from module Install packages Run R script with arguments in command line Run R in batch mode Node, core, and other jargons Submit the batch job Pipeline I was trying to run simulation about my migration project on Yale HPC (high performance cluster). After spending a day working on how to do it, I think it’s probably a good time to take a note and dust off my website.
A quick update about new functions of this website. Two slight changes I have made: relocate the website to a customized domain, and enable the commenting function.
In case you want to know how this website was intially built, I wrote a guide. It’s a simple guide that contains other well-written tutorials and some caveats I’ve encounterd.
Custom domain Again, I found myself struggling with the terms for a while.
Rcpp Generalized birthday problem GeneralBirthdayProblem package In the previous post, I tried to use some algorithms to speed up simulation. Now in this post, I will introduce a pretty powerful package Rcpp, which has the potential to fundementally change the way you do simulation if you want to employ a time-consuming simulation in R. Let’s finish this project!
Generalized birthday problem
What’s probability of one birthday shared by two persons in any size of room? Binary search Replicate size This tiny project comes from the coding class I am taking this semester. The simplest birthday problem is as followed: how many people should be in a room such that the probability of a birthday shared by at least two persons is just above 0.5? I found this problem is very interesting.
Intro Tutorials Caveats I have jumped in Intro The first (meaningful) post for this new website! After searching for many blog managers, I finally found out a cool and nice way to generate a good-looking website. The whole website is built under a R package blogdown, which is based on another pretty handy package rmarkdown that helps you markdown pdf or html file in Rstudio. blogdown employs a site generator
