I am trying to find an algorithm for Granger Causality in c#. Is this sort of question dealt with anywhere on Stack Exchange?

Or is there some other forum I should look at for questions that are not exactly code problems?

Any help appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You could still post that kind of question on

There are some related forums though..

Good to know - had a similar question to this just closed out last time. I will check out those sites thank you. – ManInMoon Oct 13 '11 at 13:20
I think the people on Math and Stats will kill you painfully if you ask them for C# can ask them for the the algorithm, though, and then translate it into C# yourself. Also it may be noted that the people at Stack Overflow will most likely also hurt you if ask them to translate this mathematical algorithm/formula into C# for me. Of course, you can always go there if you're stuck while doing so. – Time Traveling Bobby Oct 13 '11 at 13:46
Do you think people on Math and Stats would NOT be keen to share - why? I am specifically trying to save myself the effort of re-inventing(or rather writing) the wheel. – ManInMoon Oct 13 '11 at 13:53
@ManInMoon, maths and stats should be used for determining the algorithm - not an implementation. You can then have go at writing the code then post on stackoverflow for help if/when you get stuck. Or you could post on SO asking about an implementation of the algorithm (not asking if this is the right place to ask about it) – musefan Oct 13 '11 at 13:56
musefan - I did try asking for implementation on SO - and got my question closed. THAT is the reason I asked about where the right place is!! – ManInMoon Oct 13 '11 at 14:00
@ManInMoon, well most people are unwilling to do the work for you - as would I be. YOu shoudl really give it a go yourself (if you cannot find anything on Google) and then ask on SO when you start having issue (and post the code you have tried to) - people will then be more willing to help – musefan Oct 13 '11 at 14:03
@ManInMoon If you have access to Matlab, there are a handful of implementations that use that (you could call it from your .NET code). Cross Validated is the best place to go for the theory, but I think R is the weapon of choice over there. – jonsca Oct 13 '11 at 16:33
jonsca - I would like it in c#. I know there are matlab and R libraries - but I want c# source. Someone has definiftely written this and I am just waiting for them to read my request! – ManInMoon Oct 14 '11 at 11:39
