You look at all of the math, even the papers it cites and it follows everything perfectly. The only issue is, the math used in the function is way over your head and you aren’t an expert in it at all.

What do you do?

  1. Go back, this is obviously trustworthy
  2. Learn all of the math behind this function and find exactly where this paper and code went wrong

B McGraw has lived a long and successful professional life as a software developer and researcher. After completing his BS in spaghetti coding at the department of the dark arts at Cranberry Lemon in 2005 he wasted no time in getting a masters in debugging by print statement in 2008 and obtaining his PhD with research in screwing up repos on Github in 2014. That's when he could finally get paid. In 2018 B McGraw finally made the big step of defaulting on his student loans and began advancing his career by adding his name on other people's research papers after finding one grammatical mistake in the Peer Review process.
