The site offers code for several of the techniques in Visual Basic for Applications.  Why VBA?  Although it is not computationally fast, as an add-in to Microsoft Excel it is widely accessible to site visitors, easy to use, edit, and debug.  If desired, a user can easily translate the VBA code to any other programming language.   For those needing a basic VBA how-to, this file r3eda site VBA Primer 2016-06-21 offers a primer.

This web site provides free access (see the copyright statement below) to descriptions and code of techniques that I think are useful and innovative.  Return to the R3Co Home Page and use the Menu items to access tutorials and VBA code for:

  • Leapfrogging – a multi-player optimization
  • Bootstrappping – a technique for propagating uncertainty
  • Steady State identification – a method to detect SS in noisy data
  • Nonlinear Regression – using Leapfrogging optimization and steady state convergence
  • Incremental Model Parameter Adjustment – for incrementally adjusting models with data
  • Statistical Filters – to update using statistical criteria

I am offering this site to encourage their utilization.  The visitor is welcome to download, use, and share the information and software.  Please appropriately acknowledge the source.  Of course, the user accepts responsibility for the use, outcome, consequences, etc. of implementing the techniques presented here.  These are developed with my best efforts, but with any tool, the user needs to accept application responsibility.
