Theorems in MathJax - amsmath-like custom names with improved CSS

In LaTeX, using the amsthm package, one can write

Expected value and variance of some stochastic processes

As an exercise, I illustrate how expected value and variance of some stochastic processes evolve in time.


Rate maps for grid cells

At CAMP@Bangalore, I worked on a small project that involved plotting rate maps for data recorded from grid cells. There has been some interest on how to do this from other students in the course, so I'm posting the relevant code here.

Better Zotero file management with Zotfile

In this post I'm detailing my Zotero setup. It took me a while to figure out all the bits and pieces and I figure describing my configuration might be helpful to someone else.


A reproducible research environment with Sumatra and Docker

Docker is a promising candidate for a computational research environment that allows for easy replication of computations and results. Sumatra is an automated laboratory notebook for computational research projects. Do Sumatra and Docker work well together?


A LaTeX Beamer two-column frame template with proper vertical spacing

I made a LaTex Beamer template for creating presentations in a two-column format. I use this style to have figures on the right and text on the left. Here's the presentation the template produces:
