{caret} custom function implementation

Problem: Optimal Probability Threshold It’s been a while! I’m writing this post for a couple of reasons. I don’t want to only be writing my dissertation… Someone found me on github and asked me to help them. I am happy to be writing this post for the two reasons listed above so let’s jump straight into the problem. Recently, a random stranger e-mailed me about a problem they were having at work.

Tidy simulation!

Simulations? But… why? When I was taking classess at University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, I was one of those guys that was strong in programming/coding but had to spend much of my time on the math behind statistics. I stopped taking math after vector calculus during undergrad (which I regret) because I was a Biochem major. I thoroughly enjoyed learning all the tricks but I so wish I had learned about (real) analysis and higher (proof-based) maths when I was younger.
