Notes #

  • An analogy: weather forecasting is like NASCAR race (from Loft in Nate Silver’s): Initial conditions provide no values for prediction, just like in chaos theory.
  • The largest Ponzi scheme belongs to Bernard L. Madoff.
  • The Japanese word “kamikaze” (神風) means “divine wind,” referring to the major typhoons that invaded Japan in 1274.
