### Multilevel linear modeling, multilevel SEM, and output for documentation using julia

How can hierarchical models such as hierarchical linear models (HLM), hierarchical generalized linear models (HGLM), structural equation modeling (SEM) and multilevel SEM be conducted in julia? I.e. ...

### GPU Parallelization: Kernel for Value Function Iteration on Matlab

(I crossposted on stackoverflow, I'm not sure where this question best fits.) I'd like to write a matlab function that does Value Function Iteration on GPU. What I have in mind is very similar to ...

### Coordinate Descent in Ordinary Least Squares not converging

As a warm-up to writing my own elastic net solver, I'm trying to get a fast enough version of ordinary least squares implemented using coordinate descent. So if $b = Ax$, I want to find $x$ that ...

### QQ-Plots in Julia via Plots.jl? [closed]

I am trying to make QQ-Plots in Julia, but the only solution I could find is this old example using Gadfly. Given that it's being deprecated, I wanted to know if anyone knew of a solution for making ...

### Looking for saddle point in scalar function with multiple parameters

I have real valued function, let's call it $f(\mathbf{x}, \mathbf{y})$, which I would like to maximise the function wrt $\mathbf{x}\in\mathrm{R}^d$ and minimise it wrt $\mathbf{y}\in\mathrm{R}^q$. ...

### Unexpectedly slow convergence when classifying MNIST digits with a Neural Network

I recently finished my implementation of a multilayer artificial neural network in Julia; I train it with SGD (no momentum, no decay, no regularization, just basic SGD), computing the gradient by ...

### Large Sample Properties Least Square Estimator

I am trying to understand the properties of the least squares estimator. In particular the Gauss-Markov theorem states that the estimator is independent from the distribution of the error term. Thus ...

### Non-Linear Least Squares Sine Frequency Estimation in julia

I am trying to estimate an artificial non-linear maximum likelihood problem which works fine as long as there is no frequency in a sine function to estimate. I am using julia Optim and Distributions ...
