draftlotto is here

Hi all, I'm new to this forum, and wanted to introduce myself - I'm interested in math of all sorts.  In particular, I've lately been interested in the calculation of probabilities related to draft lotteries (e.g. NBA, NHL draft lotteries) using a variety of methods, including Monte Carlo simulation and exact methods.  Related to that, I've been developing an application that can calculate draft lottery probabilities for a lot of different scenarios.  If you're interested, I've started a website - just add a .com to my username smile .

Anyway, I look forward to being part of this forum,
draftlotto

Hi draftlotto;

Welcome to the forum. A nice free tool.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

I was here since November 30.

Or was it the anniversary when I changed my name? tongue
