My New Book and Other Matters

I haven’t posted for a while, so here are some news items:

  • My new book, Parallel Computation for Data Science, will be out in June or July. I believe it will be useful to anyone doing computationally intensive work.
  • After a few months being busy with the book and other things, I have returned to my Snowdoop project and my associated package, partools. I recently gave a talk on Snowdoop to the Berkeley R Group, and you will be hearing more here on this blog.
  • I’ve begun a new book on regression/predictive analytics, finishing two chapters so far.
  • I’ve been doing some research on the missing-value problem, and am developing a package for it too.

Lots of fun stuff to do these days. 🙂

    1. My concern: will it be another PoD paperback whose binding falls apart in a week? “The Art… ” is current RepKover, thank God. Does know care about real books anymore?!?!? (Note to self: “Stelllllaaaaaa!!”)

  1. Professor Matloff you think is possible to get some guidance on how to install the pyMPI package. When I try to install it on my Mac with pip install pyMPI-2.5b0.tar.gz I get the following error:

    Processing ./pyMPI-2.5b0.tar.gz
    Complete output from command python egg_info:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “”, line 18, in
    IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/var/folders/1k/jn55_g3x2jdb653wspftm3vc0000gn/T/pip-mHB7_4-build/’

    Command “python egg_info” failed with error code 1 in /var/folders/1k/jn55_g3x2jdb653wspftm3vc0000gn/T/pip-mHB7_4-build
