Physical Laboratory for Mathematical Statistical Experiments (LMSE)
The Physical Laboratory for Mathematical Statistical Experiments (LMSE) emerged in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2009 as a cyber organisational response to various activities at the Christchurch Centre since 2007.
LMSE Christchurch Centre aims to facilitate activities that allow a deeper appreciation of Mathematics and Statistics for teaching/learning as well as research purposes. See current activities.
Teaching/Learning Focus of LMSE
The laboratory facilitates teaching and learning styles that complement the traditional and predominant readwrite style. A simple and concrete experiment may often allow the teacher/learner pair to kinesthetically and/or perceptually relate it to the mathematical model of the statistical experiment. Toward this goal LMSE Christchurch Centre has coordinated several projects listed below.
Increasingly, live and interactive lectures are facilitated using the Sage Notebook Server and Apache Spark, a fast and general engine for largescale data processing via databricks to compute with datasets that won't fit in a single computer ("big data").
For a recent example of such lectures see the course on Monte Carlo Methods and Scalable Data Science.
See the publicly shared content and video lectures for these and other courses at:
 and for Scalable Data Science
 Computational Statistical Experiments in Matlab
 for Monte Carlo Methods
The activities and projects are supported by various funding bodies as detailed in the project reports. LMSE Christchurch Centre adheres to this Disclaimer Policy. Any one from anywhere is welcome to contribute and coordinate projects to legally share, remix and reuse under appropriate terms of Creative Commons.
Research Focus of LMSE
The Laboratory has a longterm research focus on Transtraditional Mathematical Statistical Experiments at the intersection of philosophical logic, rigorous machineimplementable mathematics and appropriate extensions of classical decision theory. Toward this focus, it currently aims to provide benchmarked data sets of mechatronically measurable nonlinear systems to researchers interested in Hausdorffextensions of classical statistical decision problems toward epistemologically valid experiments in the vein of Machine Interval Experiments: Accounting for the Physical Limits on Empirical and Numerical Resolutions.
Currently, most of the research emphasis is on highly integrative C++ class libraries for scientific and statistical computing. See codes and GitHub repositories at https://github.com/raazeshsainudiin.
