The marriage of min and max.

February 29th, 2008 | Categories: math software, matlab, programming | Tags:

I read a lot of blogs concerning topics such as numerical computing, programming and computer algebra and most of the time the subject matter can be a bit…well…hard! The articles concerned can often be interesting and very useful but it can take a heck of a lot of concentration on my part before I can properly grok what the author is trying to say.

Sometimes though I come across something that is both useful and interesting and also so mind-numblingly simple that I wonder why on earth I didn’t think of it before. A case in point is Loren’s recent “Art of Matlab” article called “Should min and max marry?”.

I won’t re-iterate what she has written since she has done a great job and makes her point well. I am also currently busy implementing her idea in a piece of code I am writing at the moment while pretending to everyone around me that its such an obvious idea that I had thought about it well in advance!
