Until recently I did not have a practical application in which to use streamgraphs. In fact, I still find the visualisation complex to understand, abstract and a bit too artistic. While I recognise that the strength of streamgraphs is the display of all the time series’ values into one (possibly interactive) plot, the amount of data displayed is massive, with many streams and even more data points. Because of the amount of data displayed Continue reading “Streamgraphs in base::R [e.II]”
I always wanted to experiment with parallel computing and multi threading. However, when and how to use parallel computing has always been a bit difficult to conceptualize for me. Until I discovered forking. Here I will describe a simple implementation of fork using the chrono Time c++ library to time the forked processes.
