Very readable paper on MC resampling techniques. Classic MC techniques tend to generate smoother equity curves with shallower drawdowns than actual live results, as they “chop up” returns too finely, thereby reducing the impact of correlation during Black Swan events. The paper presents a simple method which attempts to preserve these correlations (click on title to view paper).
Well written e-book on various optimization strategies using bio-inspired/evolutionary techniques (click title).
A nice overview of Bio-Inspired algorithms, including Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming, Simulated Annealing, Neural Networks, Particle Swarms, Ant Colonies, Artificial Immune Systems, etc (click on title for article).
