Thanks for writing this up. Looks like a great read, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

That was one of my favourite finds on YouTube. That and 3Blue1Brown.

Thanks! I have not read it, but I’ll look it up now. Cheers

Can you post a link to it? I’d like to look at it. Thanks for the response.

This might slow things down on a large datasets. I used to do this all the time, until my notebooks slowed down to a crawl. There is a good article here (https://realpython.com/fast-flexible-pandas) on pd.cut() which should speed up this operation. Great article :)

Ah this is a typo. I’ll correct it. Thanks.

Thanks for the message!

I used k as the period, and lambda as the parameter for the Poisson. We estimated lambda using an exponential distribution. Using the MCMC we determined two different lambda values, and tau which became the “break point” for k.
