## A little... extension for C++

2010-08-23 18:13:44

Loops are used on a daily base by almost every programmer. Especially for-loops occur quite often.

Now, have you ever felt it's quite cumbersome to code something like the following:

for (int i=0; i<10; ++i){
do_something_here();
}


while you just wanted to write

10 times {
do_something_here();
}


and wanted C++ to understand it?

Don't worry, here's the solution. Just include this little header file and everything will work fine.

## Fibonacci numbers - the other way

Every programmer comes to the point where he or she must/should/wants to implement a programm for calculating fibonacci numbers. But I think my way is quite a new one.

## Just a little thought on sums of a specific form

I just had a nice thought about simple sums of the form .

## An interesting stochastic game (Part I)

2010-03-06 18:23:41

We consider the following game played by two players (P1, P2). Both players choose a bitstring of length n (e.g. n=3, then available bitstrings would be 010, 110, 001, 111, and so on). Now a 0/1-coin (i.e. a coin with one side 0 and the other side 1, both occur equally likely) is thrown and the string is recorded. The game ends as soon as the last n cointosses form a string belonging to one of the two players. The player whose string is hit, wins.

## An amazon interview question (not completely solved)

Taken from this site:

Given n red balls and m blue balls and some containers, how would you distribute those balls among the containers such that the probability of picking a red ball is maximized, assuming that the user randomly chooses a container and then randomly picks a ball from that?

Probably everyone knows the game concentration. For those who don't, here's an explanation. This article presents a stochastic problem concerning this game.

## Dynamic programming - a gentle introduction

2009-10-04 22:38:47

Dynamic programming is a quite well-known technique, but often not completely understood. This article provides a basic insight into dynamic programming. It shows some little examples and tries to explain the requirements so that dynamic programming is applicable.
