IMPROVED DATA HANDLING

Feature plot of wine chemistry variables

Option to specify models and data in terms of model variables:

//Load specified variables in a GAUSS matrix: X = loadd(“wine_quality.dat”, “rating + citric acid + sulphates”);

//Estimate parameters of model: //rating = α + β1*citric acid + β2*sulphates call ols(“wine_quality.dat”, “rating ~ citric acid + sulphates”);

//Calculate descriptive statistics on all //variables in dataset except for ‘fixed acidity’ and ‘chlorides’ call dstatmt(“wine_quality.dat”, “. -fixed acidity -chlorides”); Simple to use Consistent with other statistical packages Well documented Backwards compatible

 

 

Compute and estimate CSV, XLSX and HDF5 data directly

Intelligent file handling allows you to use many different file types as data sources for GAUSS procedures:

//Load specified variables from a CSV file to a GAUSS matrix: X = loadd(“wine_quality.csv”, “rating + citric acid + sulphates”);

//Estimate parameters of model: //rating = α + β1*citric acid + β2*sulphates, //using data from an Excel file call ols(“wine_quality.xlsx”, “rating ~ citric acid + sulphates”);

//Calculate descriptive statistics on all variables //in an Excel file except for ‘fixed acidity’ and ‘chlorides’ call dstatmt(“wine_quality.xlsx”, “. -fixed acidity -chlorides”);

 

 

Support for HDF5 datasets provides:

Unlimited dataset size

Fast data read and write

Compatible with Hadoop:

Easily create GAUSS mapper and reducer functions

Connect to NoSQL and Big Data databases such as:

MongoDB, Hbase, Hive, Pig and more

Support for streaming or online algorithms for data that does not fit entirely in memory

 

Quick instantiation with a small memory footprint allows for high performance across the cluster

CASE STUDIES

 

Trading Desk Strategies Case Study

Using Design of Experiments Technology to Improve the HR Trading System in GAUSS ENGINE. A computer program was written using C# with the GAUSS Run-Time Module [1] for statistical and mathematical calculations to manage the trading of the HR spreads.   An option chain, a table of calls and puts for all currently available strikes and expires, is downloaded in real time each minute of the trading day and processed for eligible spreads. If any is found that satisfies a rather complex set of requirements, a signal is issued and for actual trading, the signal would be sent to a trader.

 

Map Info Case Study

Using GAUSS Systems and GAUSS Engine Pro for site evaluation modeling.  This is a form of locational analysis that is computationally quite intensive and very well suited to matrix techniques.  GAUSS has played a critical role in the development of a custom calibration program that is used in the case study to build models and which yields statistical parameters that drive the developers site models.  A combination of GAUSS and GAUSS Engine Pro has also played a pivotal role in providing models with a delivery mechanism and thus the ability to be accessed at the client desktop. In particular, the developers have used GAUSS Engine Pro to develop some user-friendly software called Branch Manager. The software has been developed in Visual Basic and uses MapInfo MapX as the mapping engine. The Visual Basic module interfaces with GAUSS Engine Pro to trigger all computational operations of the model and the provision of numeric output as displayed in reports generated through Crystal Reports. Site evaluation scenarios are played out graphically through the manipulation of location-specific ‘dots’ which represent stores or bank branches and which trigger the running of the models.

 

Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. Case Study

The developer’s goal was to build a system that would allow the portfolio manager to run optimizations on their portfolios to obtain trade ideas for each specific account. The optimizations would have to account for transaction costs, be sensitive to generating taxes and return information on the problem constraints. Using GAUSS and its nonlinear optimization routines allowed us to develop a fast algorithm that was relatively easy to code.  In addition, the developers wanted to develop a self-contained system that could be distributed to any of the BBH offices around the country. The GAUSS Engine was the perfect solution, since it offered a simple way to add the necessary optimization functionality to our application and make it distributable across the firm.
