Rust’s Borrowing by Example

From Rust in Action by Tim Mcnamara

Our strategy for this article is to use an example that compiles, then make a minor change that triggers an error which appears to emerge without any adjustment to the program’s flow. Working through the fixes to those issues should make the concepts more complete.

Constraint-Satisfaction Problems in Python

From Classic Computer Science Problems in Python by David Kopec

A large number of problems which computational tools solve can be broadly categorized as constraint-satisfaction problems (CSPs). CSPs are composed of variables with possible values which fall into ranges known as domains. Constraints between the variables must be satisfied in order for constraint-satisfaction problems to be solved. Those three core concepts—variables, domains, and constraints—are simple to understand, and their generality underlies the wide applicabilit

Analyzing Stock Price Time Series with Fortran Arrays, Part 1

From Modern Fortran by Milan Curcic

Stock price analysis and prediction has been an increasingly popular topic since the early days of high-level programming, and Fortran has been used in the bowels of many financial trading and banking systems, mainly thanks to its robustness, reliability, and efficiency. In this article, we’ll work with a dataset that is freely available, small enough to be easily downloaded, and yet large enough to demonstrate the power of Fortran arrays.
