bash aliases for SLURM: "tailjob <jobid>" or just "tailtop" for most recent job
# tails output of any SLURM job that is listed in the queue.
# if job is pending, tailjob will wait until the output file exists
# usage: tailjob <job_id>
tailjob() {
local job_id=$1

local stdout_file=$(scontrol show job "$job_id" | awk -F= '/StdOut=/{print $2}')
echo "Running tail -F $stdout_file"

Wrapper to give einops.rearrange an "inverse"

Tries to multiply two arrays/matrices in a variety of ways; returns what "works"

Tries to multiply two arrays/matrices in a variety of ways
Returns all possible working combos as a dict, with the shapes of their respective outputs
Author: Scott H. Hawley, @drscotthawley
combos = ['a*b', 'a*b.T', 'a.T*b', 'a.T*b.T','b*a', 'b*a.T', 'b.T*a', 'b.T*a.T'] # elementwise multiplications
combos += [s.replace('*',' @ ') for s in combos] # matrix multiplications (I like the space here)
working_combos = {}

Swaps Validation set with a section of Training set, given a value for k
# In case you didn't think to add k-fold cross-validation until late in your
# ML project,...
# This is built for a situation where datasets are arrays of, say, images.
def kfold_swap(train_X, train_Y, val_X, val_Y, k):
Swaps val with a section of train, given a value for k
"Duct tape" approach used to "retro-fit" k-fold cross-validation while minimally
disturbing the rest of the code, while avoiding reloading data from disk and
keeping RAM use manageable. (e.g. np.append() is bad b/c it would copy all of train)
#! /usr/bin/env python
Simulation of a 'magnetic' pendulum. Actually we'll just use
electrostatic charges instead of magnets, but..good enough, right?
Plots an image showing which source the object is closest to after a certain time
(Note: Depending on params like maxiter, the object may still be moving at the
end of the simulation, so the 'ending position' may not be where it comes to rest.)
This code integrates all the (non-interacting) test objects at once, on the GPU.

Little script I use to easily start a new Fastpages/Jekyll/Markdown blog entry
#! /usr/bin/env python
# Little script I use to start a new Markdown blog entry.
# Run from the parent directory above the blog directory,
# or supply a full path to run from anywhere.
# Usage: <title>
# It automatically figures out what the current date is to
# create a new entry, and supplies a default header with a title
# and a bibliography placement
