LRU Cache using java generics.
/* This is an efficient implementation of a fixed size cache using Java generics.
* It uses a least recently used eviction policy implemented via a combination hashtable/linked list data structure.
* Written by Alrecenk October 2015 because I felt like playing with generics.

Very fast accurate approximation to Math.exp in java using floating point bit hacks.
/* fast floating point exp function
* must initialize table with buildexptable before using
Based on
A Fast, Compact Approximation of the Exponential Function
Nicol N. Schraudolph 1999
Adapted to single precision to improve speed and added adjustment table to improve accuracy.

Scales down an image by an area weighted averaging of all overlapping pixels. Equivalent to infinite supersampling.
//scales an image, maintaining aspect ratio, to fit within the desired width and height
//averages color over squares weighted by overlap area to get "perfect" results when scaling down
//does not interpolate and is not designed for scaling up, only down (hence thumbnail)
public static BufferedImage makethumbnail(BufferedImage img, double desiredwidth, double desiredheight){
//System.out.println("Original Image size: " + img.getWidth(null)+ " x "+img.getHeight(null));
if(img ==null || img.getWidth(null) <1 || img.getHeight(null) <1){
return null; // something wrong with image
byte image[][][] = convertimage(img) ; // convert to byte array, first index is x, then y, then {r,g,b}

Hessian (second derivative) of error calculation for a logistic regression model.
//returns the hessian (gradient of gradient) of error with respect to weights
//for a logistic regression with weights w on the given input and output
//output should be in the form 0 for negative, 1 for positive

Performs an inexact line-search for optimization . Finds a step-size satisfying the Wolfe conditions by binary search.
//Performs a binary search to satisfy the Wolfe conditions
//returns alpha where next x =should be x0 + alpha*d
//guarantees convergence as long as search direction is bounded away from being orthogonal with gradient
//x0 is starting point, d is search direction, alpha is starting step size, maxit is max iterations
//c1 and c2 are the constants of the Wolfe conditions (0.1 and 0.9 can work)

//get error and gradient at starting point
