Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

The re-run for chunk count 4 is running, by the way. I fixed the problem with NaNtivotes so this run should produce good results. See you again Sunday morning (my time). Sorry again for the delay. I also verified that none of the results in chunk counts 1 through 3 were corrupted by NaNtivotes. I'm ...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

Alright, so: `text{kl}` didn't show up in the 3-chunk results, because it's a 4-chunker: gpf itself, the l weight, the lb, and the k. `text{laj}` shouldn't really be a 3-chunk metric either, by our newly shared understanding re: logarithms; we need to lock the base from 4/3 to 2 and then use a coeff...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

...the vast majority of those metrics must be complete rubbish. There ought to be some way to reject them very quickly. Is that what you're saying you do, "in a few milliseconds"? Do the others then go on to take many seconds? Off the top of my head I can think of a few ways I could make it smarter...

Wait, why would you be getting NaNs from antivotes calculations anyway?
Oh, gosh, who knows... probably getting some complex numbers in there when something negative gets its root taken or whatever. That antivotes calculation is beastly with all the possible parameters in the mix together.

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

Had a few minutes to look at things during my lunch break. JavaScript has a primitive value called NaN, which stands for "Not-a-Number". I was using the type check "typeof candidate === 'number'" to confirm that results of the antivotes calculation were all numbers, as opposed to nulls, undefineds, ...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

I like reading your realisations of how you can prune the search. But I'm afraid paying for supercomputer time to make decisions of so little import (the ratio definitions of tina diacritics) seems ludicrous to me. Fair enough. It might be cheaper than you think. And it might just be fun! But I hea...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

A couple things occurred to me overnight: 1. If for chunk count n, the best SoS with a given parameter in it cannot beat the best SoS period for chunk count n-1, then that parameter is probably less than useless at that chunk count n. In other words, because among the metrics tried out at chunk coun...

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

Don't get toooo excited. It's just the run for 4 chunks. It probably won't tell us too much we don't already know. And we'll still have a lot of thinking to do before kicking off a run for 5 chunks if we ever want to get helpful results. What I'm most excited to learn, I think, is the results of whi...

Alright, we're still on track. It's been running for 18 hours now and is right at 25%.

Re: developing a notational comma popularity metric

I don't count the true constants because, if they have any real existence at all, they are simply hidden inside the box. Whether they are actually there inside the box, is an implementation detail that shouldn't matter. For example, if we look inside an x 2 box, we may find there is no number 2 in ...
