Gradient Descent Simply Explained (with Example)
So… I’ll try to explain here the concept of gradient descent as simple as possible in order to provide some insight of what’s happening from a mathematical perspective and why the formula works. I’ll try to keep it short and...

Approximating Integrals with the Gaussian Quadrature (w/ example)
This is more like a memory dump so I will have a backup in case I’ll ever need it again. And if someone else finds this information useful, the better it is. Intro The Gaussian Quadrature is a method used...

Matlab/Octave Lagrange Interpolation Polynomial
Ok, I’ve been missing for a few days…months…almost a year. Ran out of ideas and time for new articles (thanks to the university) so I’ll publish some stuff related to numerical methods, starting with a basic interpolation method using the...
