Where's Rick? How to find me at SAS Global Forum 2012


SAS Global Forum 2012 is right around the corner. If you will be in Orlando, too, be sure to say hello! If you have ideas for improving SAS/IML software or you would like to discuss my blog, please visit me during my hours at the SAS/IML booth in the Demo Hall. I'll be bored and lonely if no one comes by!

Here's where you can find me:

    Rick, you are busy! I hope to see you at the SAS Press Author's dinner.

    I was just assembling my own schedule for the conference. It's going to be busier than I thought. I've also got a Super Demo (on Windows PowerShell) on Monday at 1:30, so you and I will be competing for mindshare. I'll have to plan some gimmick, perhaps juggling chainsaws.

      • Hello, Rick. I just read your post on orthogonal matrix generation and know you are writing a book on simulation. When will your book on simulation using SAS come out? Can I buy an early version? Perhaps reading your book can save me hours and hours of work!

        Last year, I posed a SAS support request:

        SAS tech support number: 7610634360
        title: reproducible Mersenne-Twister random number stream: SAS vs R

        Would it be interesting to tackle this problem using Proc IML in your book? If so, please let me know.

        Best regards,

        A major simulation work requires me to use reproducible random number stream between SAS & R. The enclosed results show how I can keep track of random number generation results from the Mersenne-Twister (1998) algorithm from SAS. As far as your statistical experts know, can this stream be reproduced by R?
