Amusingly enough, I got into the conference this year early. This seems to be a small piece of evidence for my hypothesis that these sorts of applications often work as lotteries.

I was able to get a copy of this via interlibrary loan some time ago, after finding much better citations.

Got this from a website that sells copies of Russian dissertations.

I definitely pulled out all the stops on this dissertation, and learned a fair amount in the process. If you're not living in Russia, and looking for a Russian dissertation, I would be a good person to contact. I can't get you the ...(read more)

I don't see how that would be a problem. Perhaps I'm missing something, so if you could explain I'd be appreciative.

Usually the problem is that wavelengths smaller than the grid size obviously can't be resolved. A class of turbulence modeling approaches can help with that to a certain extent. This...(read more)

> You'd be more likely to get some kind of waves that propagate at fixed speed along the grid, giving you a privileged rest frame, like in the old discredited theories of aether.

I'll try to steelman Florian_Dietz.

I don't know much anything about relativity, but waves on a grid in computational f...(read more)

I only skimmed this post, but I want to point out that most computational physics (and engineering) uses discretized space and time much as you've described. This is not new, just how things are often computed in practice.

Whether or not reality is discrete in this sense is beyond my knowledge as a...(read more)

I can see that I misremembered the lecture. Seems to be an application of Bayes as Lumifer suggested for the basic approach. Other more complex approaches were also discussed.

While I don't have my notes in front of me, I do recall from the decision analysis class I recently took that [log score]( is related to the weight one would give to one forecaster among several when combining forecasts. Unfortunate...(read more)

Thanks for pointing out that post by nostalgebraist. I had not seen it before and it definitely is of interest to me. I'm interested in hearing anything else along these lines, particularly information about solving this problem.
