    A mistimed rainstorm can ruin any hope of a profitable harvestWestem Science News - Juy 16, 2015

    Weather, being quite a whole-hearted practitioner of the adage, "the only constant is change" keeps us guessing with altered seasons, varying wind patterns and mood-swings in temperature. For a farmer who is growing corn, an unpredictable downpour of rain or an unforeseen and extreme change in temperature may completely annihilate that year's crop haul. Dr. Rogemar Mamon, a Mathematics & Statistics professor at Western University's department of Statistics and Actuarial Sciences, observes that, "what the farmer needs is crop insurance linked to weather-related risk to help tide over these unavoidable and unpredictable circumstances."  read more....

  • Duncan Murdoch: Recent Developments in rgl (Thursday, October 08, 2015)
    Time: 3:30pm-4:30pm and Room: WSC 248
    Speaker: Dr. Duncan Murdoch - University of Western Ontario
    Title: Recent Developments in rgl
    In 2001, I wrote an R package called rgl to allow three dimensional
    dynamic graphics in R for Windows. In 2002, Daniel Adler independently
    wrote a platform-independent 3-D graphics package with the same name,
    as his thesis work at the University of Goettingen. Soon after that we
    decided to merge our efforts.

    In this talk I will survey rgl capabilities, including recent
    additions such as functions to generate 3D shapes, input and output
    capabilities, and ways to allow multiple figures to appear
    in the same window, controlled either independently or together.
